The Valentine 3 Inchey swap

Oh I have been dying to show you the 3 incheys I got from the Valentine swap I did with some of my Silver Bella buddies!  Feast your eyes on all this beauty:
This is the little canvas book that Jeanelle created for each of us to hold the 3 incheys!  Isn't it FUN?!
The sweet "be mine" sentiment on Mollie McCabe's 3 inchey; she included a beautiful vintage valentine in her gift packet, too!
Jami Miller's woven ribbon heart 3 inchey
 Look how cute Miss Lynn wrapped her 3 inchey...
isn't it pink and pearly and gorgeous!  (If you haven't already downloaded Amy Powers' newest ezine, you must go get it; Miss Lynn is one of the contributors/stars this time and it is, as always, FULL of inspiration!)
This little crazy quilt was made by Connie.
I love how Tamantha wrapped her 3 inchey and sealed it with wax!
Her 3 inchey had a little heart that slips into a lace pocket.
Sweetness!
Lisa's 3 inchey wrapped in hearts...
 with a tiny silver heart in the middle of layers of red and pink prettiness!
Here's a perfectly-wrapped 3 inchey from hostess Jeanelle...
a lovebird!
Finally -- here's mine!  I wrapped it in vintage textured wallpaper, covered with a page from my favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, with Fitzwilliam Darcy's initials in the bottom right corner.  I decorated the front with a pretty vintage valentine wrapping paper heart; the paper was a gift from Suzanne.
I stitched Darcy's silhouette surrounded by the words of his proposal to Elizabeth Bennett, renewed.  I embellished it with tiny felted roses and beads.
Here's the whole haul -- complete with another vintage valentine from Jeanelle, and, of course, chocolate!  So. Much. Fun!  I am so blessed to have been able to participate with all these talented ladies!
