It's a LOVE thing! ♥

 Hi friends!

It's me, wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day ♥
I told my husband 'Look!  It's me on a card!"

With a smile and careful consideration,
 he offered "Baby, that is definitely not you on the card."

Well, I looked again and lo and behold, he's right!
I sadly do not own those cool heart shaped glasses!
Hee hee! :-)

{And the inside of my card}

Confession time!
One of my favorite things about celebrating Valentines
is seeing the decorated shoe boxes come home from school
with all the little handwritten To and From names and notes!
I love to go through them with my son
and see the assortment of U R My Best Friend,
I ♥ U, Be Mine, U R So Sweet and so on -
soooo cute!!

I'm old fashioned, I s'pose ....
I see pins and boards on Pinterest of the cutest 
Valentines treats and handmade tags and cards
BUT ..

I think the kids should make them!
I really do!
My son gets out his little magic markers and writes his name
as many times as it takes
 for Sunday School, classroom,
teachers, speciality area teachers ...
I believe in lost art of letter writing, thank you notes, hand written cards ♥
He doesn't mind and but does say the kids in class think
 "It's all about the candy, mommy!"

Yeah ....
I'm all about that life, too :-)

I'll enter my card into the Art Impressions monthly challenge: LOVE
Simon Says Stamp: Have a Heart
Friday Mashup:  LOVE 

Thanks for stopping by today!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
