Budding Artist?

While searching through old pictures and things for something to blog about, I found some very old "cards" made while I was in grade school. This little piece of art features a paper lace doily, three colors of crepe paper, and the flowers are fussy cut from wallpaper.

Inside is the message - definitely Valentine's Day - but it is not signed.

Another valentine - this time "To Daddy" - that shows off my coloring skills and also my handwriting.

Inside the card is the question asked so many times on Valentine's Day. It is dated 1937 when I was 9 years old. Although there aren't many things that I have that are links to my childhood, it is nice to have some. (Click to enlarge)
