Valentine Swap

I joined Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff's Valentine Swap, and promptly forgot when I was supposed to have them in the mail. I was working full-time at my temp job last week, and for some reason thought they were due in the mail a bit after I finished the week. Thursday morning, I read Michele's post at Nook and Cranny about her Valentines, and realized I better check the mail-by date, only to find they were supposed to be postmarked by Saturday. So, Friday night, I jumped in. I always find the ATC's to be so beautiful and full from Kimberly's swaps, I tried to do that with mine, but I learned I can't do over the top. I was a little worried mine would be too plain, but I really like them. Here they are:
 I've decided covering things with dictionary paper is my thing. I love how backgrounds look with it. The hearts were found in some pack I bought somewhere, they feel like mulberry paper. The buttons are vintage, and the "Love" is a brad, I decided I needed to glue the edges down, otherwise it would have bounced around and not stayed in place. I loved the original 4 I made, I had to make myself one, and since four ATC's fit on the dictionary page, I made four more. I do have the below three left if anyone wants to trade. I'm also listing them on my Etsy store, so hopefully they'll fly away fast.

It's been a long time since I've listed anything newly made on Etsy, they probably won't sell.
