Bag O' Valentines...

Happy Monday! Hope you are all started off to a great week! Theres a challenge over at SCS to make a CAS Valentines Card...I had this idea last year and never got around to making it so I thought this would be a good time...And in case your wondering "what is that?" theres a story behind it....When I was in Elementry School (LONG ago) they use to have us all put a brown bag under the chalk board so when Valentines Day came everyone would put their Valentines in the brown bags that lined up and had the name of each person on the bag...(you could add a name to this if you wanted but I left it off) I remember there were some kids whose bag would be overflowing and others who didnt get many...I used to feel bad for them...But most of the Valentines were handmade cut out hearts...So this is my Bag O' Valentines (well not mine I never got this many) which brings back childhood memories...Anyone else out there used to do this in school or have a story to share? And I just want to say "May your Valentine Bag Overflow this year"...Hugs...Cookie

This is a perfect example of what Susan discussed on her blog - this card is simply spectacular. The image definitely evokes fond childhood memories. I may need to borrow this idea to send to a few classmates (from long ago).
