This Valentine-related image is actually the front of a Cracker Jack :hpd: card. The inside message is "Have I got a surprise for you! Happy Birthday."
This card is by Hallmark Cards, Inc. No date, but Cracker Jack was a registered trademark of Borden, Inc. so likely was sometime between 1964 and October 1997. I don't think the heart seen coming out of the box was ever an actual CJ prize! Happy Collecting! Gail

Thanks Gail. What a great image you posted. So, do you have anything up your Cracker Jack sleeve for Ground Hog Day? That's my favorite holiday. It involves no shopping, no baking and no decorating a big tree in my living room.

I'm with you Diane! I can handle holidays with no extra work! Unfortunately I will be working, but get to look forward to our nephew's birthday party after work. He is turning 1 on Groundhog Day! Cake and Ice Cream for supper sounds delicious, right?

Happy Groundhog Day everyone! And if you want to be my valentine, feel free to post here and share your CJ Valentine thoughts or images!

I generally don't celebrate Groundhog Day, but I LOVE the movie. ;)

Hi everyone. How about these three little Valentine Cracker Jack hearts? (Two are B series Fun Shiny Stickers and one is a B series Fun Fabric Sticker) I'm hoping all of your hearts are happy and healthy this Valentine's Day. I'm happy because my neighborhood "Geek Squad" came to my house today and showed me how to post pictures to this forum and how to type colors. Isn't that exciting? Maybe I'm not completely brain dead after all. :roll:

:-| || I really was banging my head on the wall trying to figure out how to reduce the size of my CJ hearts picture to fit this screen. Yes Luke, thanks for the wonderful "Smilies." They are fantastic!

Over and out from an old dog still learning a few new tricks. Diane

Diane,

Thanks for sharing your wonderful hearts, they're perfect for Valentine's Day.

If anyone has a smiley they'd like added, just leave a request in Forum Changes. I'd be glad to add them.
