My Valentine, My True Friend

I didn’t get a chance to create a bunch of handmade Valentine cards this year but I did get a chance to make a few this past week. I didn’t want to post them before V-day, in fear that those receiving the cards would have the surprise spoiled.  Plus they got done at the last minute too didn’t help the cause but they were done just in time.

Above is the card that I made for the best hubby in the world. It took me a couple of tries before I got it just perfect for him.  I can’t believe that 9 years ago on 2/14/02 we got engaged during our trip to Daytona for the Daytona 500. I still remember how nervous he was and how relieved he was after he heard my “yes” after the big question was popped. I’m thinking we should head back there next year to celebrate 10 years.

The pink card above which was similar to David’s I sent to my littlest nieces back home. I included a couple of little treats for my little Valentine’s. Little girls love pink don’t they?

This last card I made for some other Valentine’s in my life but it didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked. I should have used green as the main card color but they got done. It’s definitely not one of my better cards but having a few “not so great” cards help to create the next best creation afterwards.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

I love all three of your creations! I'm not much for scrapping, but you really inspire me to make my own cards. I've dabbled but am a total amateur. Thanks for the inspiration Melissa!

The girls loved their Valentine card and gifts. It made them feel special that you thought of them on Valentine's Day. Thank you!
