Every Valentine’s Day I make some kind of card for Dave. (If you read his blog you know he makes me a Christmas ornament every year.) The first Valentine’s Day we were together I made him the matchbook card below on the right back. Not really fancy – just the first of the homemade Valentine (and other) cards he’d receive from me.
The next year he received this cd of all of my favorite love songs. Some of the songs on this cd include “You Are The Love of My Life” by Jim Brickman, “Forever and Ever” by Randy Travis, “Till There Was You” by Rod Stewart, ” Your Love Is King” by Sade, and “Someone Like You” by Van Morrison.
The 5 Reasons card was from a digital kit I adjusted to my needs. Then last year, I decided to spend a little more time and made him a “I (heart) you because” tin. I covered an Altoid tin and the wood heart with paper I created in Photoshop Elements. Inside the tin are cards printed with the same paper with the actual reasons, attached by a heart brad.
What do I do this year? I’ve been working on some ideas, but nothing jumps right out at me. However, I still have time. I’ll let you know what I come up with. I’d love to hear your past Valentine’s Day projects!
These are great…….may have to case the idea in the tin……..
LOVE this idea!! I’ll have to try the tin idea with LOVE notes in it! TFS
I have no doubt you’ll come up with something wonderful. And how fortunate you two found each other and know how to keep expressing the love! Inspiring!
Kathryn, We are both blessed that we found each other finally! Thanks for commenting.
