And as I've mentioned in one of my previous Blog entries, Valentine's Day is one of my very favorite events around which to design cards.
I guess I've always loved Valentine's Day . . . there's just something kind of warm and fuzzy about it. Images of hearts and flowers, cupids, angels, sweet little puppies and kittens, . . . . all go through my head when I think of Valentine's Day.
Even during those times of my life when I haven't had a "signficant other" with whom to share the more romantic aspects of Valentine's Day, I've always considered the day a time to let other special friends and family members know how much they mean to me.
I don't really know too much about the history of Valentine's Day, so I Googled it just a little while ago and found a nice descripion at this Wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day
You might find it an interesting read, particularly if you have a fondness for Valentine's Day as I do!
(No, the image on the left is NOT one of my cards; it's an image I found on Google Images here! Pretty cute, eh?)
Last week, I started focusing my cardmaking on some new Love-themed and Valentine's Day cards. I searched through all my cardmaking papers, supplies and embellishments and pulled out any and all that I could find that would work nicely along the theme.
And I looked through all my love-themed quotes and pre-printed text blocks that I've collected over the past few years. (I'm an absolute romatic at heart, and a pushover for all those romantic sayings and verses!)
Here are the new card designs that I've come up with so far! Hope you like them!
