Mini valentine matchbox swap

I just have to post this.  I don't think my partner has hers yet, although it is in the mail.  I just think it was so fun to do this tiny project, and fun to receive one, that I just can't wait!  Above is the one that my partner and host of this swap who is the wonderful Joanne at Vintage Dragonfly, sent to me.
Everyone was suppose to decorate the tiny matchbox and make 3 tiny ATC's to put inside.  Look at these precious little ATC cards.  So sweet.  Thanks so much.  She included a pretty tag too.
Below is the one I sent to her. . . . . .
I added a little loop at the top so that it could also be an ornament!
I also made this thank you/Valentine card for all she does for us in hosting her matchbox swaps in our Flickr group.  
Notice, I used the same heart chipboard cutouts.  (from my Cricut) on many Valentine's that I have made recently.  I used vintage lace and velvet ribbon, which are two of my favorites.

Those are soooo pretty! So touched by your comment on my blog-here's why. My grams-Ella Mae-who my sale barn and blog are named after is dying. In truth, she only has a few days. I happened to be visiting her yesterday in the nursing home and had my ipad. I just happened to check my comments and yours was the first one I saw. Almost 10 years ago, my sister had twins(boy and girl)(I have no children) and my grams really wanted her to name the girl-Ella. My sister did not. My grams wrote to someone in a neighboring town that had named a little girl Ella after that to tell the stranger how wonderful it was to have someone with the name Ella(this was before the name became popular). My sister had a little girl just 3 years ago and named her Arabella(you can see the Ella in the name!)(Arabella's middle name is Rebekah(I love that). Anyway I wanted so badly to share your comment with my grams yesterday-but she wasn't really aware. She would have been so happy. Give your little Ella Mae a squeeze and a kiss for me and my grams! God Bless!
