Our Valentine Projects






EDITED:: This post is my Valentine's Post. I wanted to share pictures of the cards and banners The children I teach at church and myself made for others for Valentines Day.
The children and I had so much fun making Valentines for the people in our church and our community who are sick, nursing home bound and are home bound. We made lots of cards and worked on them all of Jan. and then into Feb. Sunday( after these pictures were taken by my friend Phyllis at http://shabbyinthecity.blogspot.com) we wrapped the cards and They have been delivered. We also made cards for their families.
The banner we made is for the lovely lady who helps me with this class. She has been teaching Sunday school for over 40 years!!! She gets so excited and happy when we do these service projects.
The children and I would like to thank our friend Deb at http://garagesalegirl.blogspot.com for the lovely craft items she sent to help us with this project. Thanks so much Deb.
We hope the people who receive these cards gets as big as a blessing from them as we did making them!!

I had to have a closer look...these turned out so beautifully and the banner is just adorable. What a lovely gift for a hard-working gal. It's not tough to see how much you care for your Sunday School kids, Mary.

Nothing is more fun than making Valentines. Red gingham? Little lacy bits? I'm right there with you.

The banner is adorable.
