Hearts of Friendship Swap

Who better to share your heart with then friends!!  I hosted a Valentine's Day swap between some of my crafty friends and asked the ladies to create a heart ornament and to include a friendship quote or saying.  It is interesting that all 9 of us had a different quote about friendship.  Here are all the hearts and their creators!!

Tammy; "Friends meet you in a tender place where it's safe to risk your heart."
 I made hearts with muslin ruffles, pretty brooches and buttons with seam binding ribbons.  My friendship message was on the back.  I modified Dawn's angel wing tutorial to make hearts instead.  I love the technique!
 I chose pink cherubs for my packaging.  The paper and images were from Tilda.
Sandy; "Right next door or miles apart, friends are always close at heart."
Sandy made these sweet pocket hearts with vintage girls and a postcard tucked in.  Thanks Sandy for the awesome "Love Shack" and ribbon.  It will be going in the glamper!
Vivian; "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold."
Vivian treated us to 2 ornies.  The sweet girl on a swing and the multi-dimensional heart. Viv has listed a tutorial for how to make these hearts using glittered paper and doilies.  And lucky me, Viv sent me this cute ladybug bear tucked into this red heart.  It is so awesome!!    Thank you so much!!!!!!
Ruth; "Friends live in your heart."
Mom made these sweet crocheted hearts.  I picked the blue one with the red rose.  It will of course match Rosie!
  Carla; "Friends are the stitches that hold our hearts together."
Carla created these paper and lace hearts with pretty vintage tins.  Loved the packaging.  Yes, you can actually iron wonder under to pattern paper to make it more sturdy.  

Natalea; "A friend is someone who sees through you and still enjoys the view."
Here is Natalea's fun creation.  3 vintage girls holding Valentine posies!  Thanks for the sweet Valentine's pillow ornament.  Love the hot pink.
Jeanne; "A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
Jeanne treated us all to this pretty paper creation which reminds me of "holding the key to my heart."  Jeanne sent me a decorated match box full of valentine craft supplies.  Perfect!  Thanks, Jeanne.
Grace; "A friend is one of the best things you can be and the greatest things you can have."
Grace made this great heart and wings ornament with the Charlotte doll head.  As always Grace is very generous and sent the candy, batch balm and pink mercury glass ornament.  Oh and let's not forget about this awesome vintage Valentine's Day planter.  I have never ever seen one in all my junkin'.  Also, the Meri Meri banner and sweet card.  You are a real peach girl!!!
Lee; "Each friend represents a world in us."
Lee crafted these pretty floral hearts with roses in the center.  Tulle and pretty ribbons topped them off.
I so enjoyed seeing what everyone made and of course hanging them on my Valentine tree.  And I loved all my presents.  It was like having another birthday.  Thanks for being such great friends and for joining in to make all these wonderful ornaments!  Hugs and cupid and all that!!!
