You can use the real thing OR you can use some faux sewing - just have to include some SEWING!

Valentine's Day.....

ALL MONTH LONG around our house (or at least at my blog).
We have so many special kiddos that we send Heart Day cards to, I have to give everyone's card a day in the spotlight!

So, for today's Oldie But Goodie at Bugaboo, I had to share this Valentine Jar.  It's not a really OLD - Oldie, but it's got just the right amount of dust on it.  I just LOVE the jars like this that Jodie has created.  I'm hoping for another one for St. Patty's day (if I'm lucky of course)!  =)
Image - Bugaboo Stamps - Valentine Jar
Papers - Miscellaneous from my scrappy bin & 6x6 V-day pads

Extra STUFF - Stickles, Ribbon from my scrappy bucket and Dimensionals
