Well as we near that magical day of Valentines...you know the one filled with hearts, cupids and frills I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite Valentine images with all of my following friends. Guess you can say it is my Valentine to all of you. You may not have found the yin to your yang, your Prince Charming, or your Mr. Big but that does not mean one cannot celebrate the day of Amore in their own special way,. I believe it is a day for those we love in a number of ways...the friend that will be there anytime you need them....the mother that drove you to dance class in the pouring rain.....the sibling that gave us purpose by having that rivalry around every corner there are people that we care about and this year lets go forth and fill the world with Valentines cards! I think it makes the world just a little more beautiful. So along with the images for you to create your own little valentines (even if it is just for the postman) I have shared the ones I made this year to hopefully inspire you.
And here is the challenge create a card to give to someone could be anyone..post a link here letting us see your beautiful work and tell us who you made it for and on February 14th I will randomly draw a winner from the list to win a FREE Digital Valentine stamp set.....oh and you do not have to use the images I have posted just any valentine will do!
