The Key to My Heart

Hello Friends!  In the latest Somerset Life, there was a picture of keys wrapped in thread that really appealed to me.  I decided to wrap pretty colors of DMC around several of my skeleton keys.
I think they are pretty.


For you today we have a vintage Valentine featuring a key.


Love the banner on this one!



As always, it's a pleasure to share with you today. 
I hope you've enjoyed your visit here.
Wishing you much happiness!
Twyla

I just love the skeleton keys and you managed to find a matching card. Ooh I do hope I have time to craft this weekend! My daughter has started her final year at school and doing exams, so it is kind of hectic and now we have to visit new schools in the weekend. Anyhow, if I don't use this idea I will use it next year, thanks for sharing again girls, have a lovely weekend!

I have some skeleton keys that I found recently in my Mom's attic. Now I can dress them up a bit. Thanks for the idea!
