Stinkin' Cute

It's that time of year to start working on Valentine's Day cards.  This year, I wanted to try something different.

Instead of making regular  4"x6" cards, I decided to make little valentines like the ones we used to give out in school years ago.

The picture above is the back of one of the valentines that I made.  A simple happy valentine's day says it all.

Here are a few of the valentine fronts that I made.

Fawn Lawn stamps
Black ink
Prismacolor Premier colored pencils
White cardstock
Valentine paper

I have fallen in love with Fawn Lawn stamps.  They have the most darling little animals and random objects that you can add faces to.♥

I have more in the works and will post them next week. xo

  3. Oh my goodness, those are just adorable!! I look forward to seeing more!

  4. I love you a Latte too cute and you do such a great job at card making.

  5. Those are so cute, I love the background paper! I also love the idea of making small Valentines like the ones we used to exchange in school! I remember our teachers having us decorate a cardboard "mailbox" for everyone to put their Valentines in! Have a great day!

  6. those are so cute, I am still working on January birthday cards. I usually only make valentines for my hubby and daughter, so I still have time :)

  7. These are just the cutest! I love the way you've made them like the old valentine cards that we used to pass out! Won't be long, and Valentine's Day will be here! :)

  8. They are so cute Gina! I love the old fashioned Valentines. Thanks for sharing with SYC.


But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one’s deepest as well as one’s most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859
