A Corgi Valentine Card...

Note: In case this post looks familiar...It originally appeared on Monday, January 30th, until I realized that the 30th was Memory Lane Monday for January. (Ironic, I know. I forgot Memory Lane Monday!) I got MLM posted later that day, but moved this post to today. I now return you to today's blog post...
I got involved in a Valentine swap with one of the corgi groups on Facebook and decided that my swap partner will be getting a handcrafted card from me. Tag agreed, so a corgi card it shall be!

This is what my partner will see when she opens the card. Tag's sweet face. Then, when she opens the card...
here's the fabric card she will find. She has three corgis, but she has a few other pets, too. (Non-corgis and a cat), so I put a corgi, three corgi hearts and another heart to signify all the rest of her furry friends.
The back of the card is a paw print on black fabric, and I finished it off with my corgi label and our signatures. It's already on its way to her, so I hope she likes it!

I worked on Farmer's Wife quilt blocks all weekend, but I won't be sharing them until the official start date. I love how they're looking now, and on February 1st, I'll share photos of the blocks, as well as some of the pointers my quilt shop quilt "gurus" shared with me to help make them fabulous.

Today's post is number NINE HUNDRED NINETY EIGHT. Two posts from today will be Number One Thousand! Any ideas for what I should give away? I'm thinking, and open to suggestions. Just leave a comment if you come up with something that might be fun.

Tag will be here tomorrow for his post, so I'll be back on Wednesday to launch our Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt QAL. See you then!

(NOTE: I received a "No Comment Blogger" note from "Unknown", signed "Elizabeth" yesterday. I'm unable to respond to you through your comment. Please email me (click on the the "Email Me" button under my profile) so I can add all your information to the QAL list. Thanks!)

I don't know which is cuter that precious picture of tag or your darling card. I always love how you put so much thought and effort in all the things you create. There's nothing you make that doesn't have some meaning behind it.

Woo-Hoo, that's a lot of posting! I just wish I had more time to come by and not miss so much.

Have a great week..♥Tracy

Donna, I use to be a school board president and the most favored day in elementary school was day 100. The student would bring in 100 of like type items, pennies, MnM's, cards....you get the idea. All the kids were SO EXCITED about 100 day. For you 1,000 might be a bit much, but just a thought if you need to lipo your button collections. :D

What a lovely surprise your partner will get when she opens the envelope. The sweet face of Tag is just perfect.
