Happy Valentines day!! If you are looking for a last minute card idea for your valentine, do I have a great bunch of ideas for you! I recently participated in a card swap through Little Birdie Secrets and got some great cards. (They are currently doing a card contest between their favorites from the card swap and I believe there is still time left to vote. Just remember *wink* that #4 is "always" a good number to vote for.) This is my card: And these are the cards I received: To view all the cards in the swap-check out this flickr group! And, a quick last-minute gift idea for your Valentine: I made this heart out of poster board using the elementary-school method of folding the paper in half and drawing half a heart then cutting through both layers. The trim around the heart is scraps of paper (about 3/4" by 4) folded in half. (For the loopy look, don't crease.) On the inside of each paper is a reason why I love my husband, things I'm grateful he does, and some of my favorite memories we share. I taped each loop shut, adhered them to the big heart with just a glue stick and then made little tape "pillows" to get the kisses and hugs to stay in place. For the center greeting and little hearts, I used my Cricut and a glitter pen. You could easily use stamps, stickers or your own handwriting. Fun, inexpensive, and easy!
