Amour Valentine Swap

Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope everyone is enjoying this sweet day and spending it with someone they love! I recently participated in a Valentine Swap hosted by Cathy of Treasured Heirlooms. My swap partner was Linda of Country Pickins. I really enjoyed being her swap partner and getting to know her!
Here is a picture of everything wrapped and still in the box.

Everything was wrapped so pretty, I hated to open them!

Linda really spoiled me! Look at all of the goodies she gave me! She even sent me my favorite candy...Ghirardelli Squares with caramel centers. Yummm!

Look at the beautiful Valentine Box Linda made me.

Linda, thank you so much for being such a wonderful Valentine's Swap Partner. I really love everything!
