Valentine’s Day Love…

Mark these dates on your calendar: February 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th, 10:00am until 5:00pm

Studio Meringue will have new Valentine design cards at Vintage Roost this weekend and next! This is one of my favorite shows because all year long I snap photos of things that look like hearts to me and then when January comes I pull all my photos and see if any one of them will make a card I think others would enjoy giving to a friend or loved one. Below is a collection of heart shaped photos I’ve taken this year and a few best seller hold overs from the past couple of years.

The first two are photos I took when Larry and I visited So. California’s Disneyland last summer.

We stayed in an RV Park walking distance from Disney and every night we watched fireworks in the night sky! I was excited to catch this heart shaped one as it lit up the sky.

Fireworks Show at Disneyland

This is Pink Yarrow I bought for my front porch planter. I double exposed it with an antique love letter, and if you look close you’ll see the words “Cupid’s dart.” :-)

Half-shell

I saw these heart shapes while visiting Casey’s friend Will’s new office. It’s a seashell cut in half.

Conversation Hearts

I like this new font I purchased and printed on this card. I think it’s similar to the writing on each conversation heart candy. Sort of missing spots and not perfect.

Tulips From the Top

I love how the colors of the tulips and candy compliment each other in this photo. The printed message also lends an old time feel.

Amaryllis Heart

You may recognize this photo from past Valentine holidays. It has been a favorite of my card purchasing friends! I LOVE it too.

Dahlia Hearts

This flower is actually a red dahlia. I cropped it very close – in order to see the heart shaped petals and then I gave it a more vintage pink color.

Conversation Hearts Full Color

Here are the conversation heart candies in full color!

During the second week of the Vintage Roost Valentine Opening, I’ll have these postcards available to purchase.

And for just .33 cents you can send a Valentine greeting postcard. These postcards are guaranteed to cause smiles and unbounded happiness. Sewn into a neat little cellophane package, just open – write your message – and they are ready to stamp and mail, just $2.00 each!
