Barb Doemel: I printed out three different vintage cards to create my Valentine. Two were VIC IMAGES and one was from public domain. I cut out different areas from each, and placed them on finished card. I printed out Valentine heart template on dk purple and pink cardstock, in various sizes. Layered the hearts together with two-sided tape, and edged them with purple and pink fine glitter using a glue pen.

From postcard 1- printed out a 4X6 photo of the purple dressed girls, cut out the girl on the right with fine tipped scissors. Traded one leg from the left girl, to the right girl, with 2 sided tape.

From postcard 2- Cut the larger heart with hand attached to it, along with various hearts, and a flower. Placed these hearts on the girl's garland with glue dots. Placed a glitter stone onto the flower with glue dot, and attached it to the girl's hat, also with a glue dot. Then attached girl to large purple and pink heart with pop dots, to give the valentine added dimension.

From postcard 3- cut out bird, and attached on heart next to girl. Then took a long length of wire-edged ribbon, and pleat-folded it to conform around the heart. Also took a short strip of the same ribbon, and placed two-sided tape on the back of it, then folded both sides into the middle to form a hanging loop. Attached heart to pleat-folded ribbon, along with loop, using the two-sided tape. Cut one more pink cardstock heart, attach a red pipecleaner shaped into a heart with glue dots. Spread glue pen inside the pipecleaner heart, and apply purple and pink fine glitter. When dry, attach to backside of valentine with two-sided tape. This ornament can hang in a window or on a door.

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg.
