So, with all the uproar over the accident and most of us being sick, I kind of forgot that yesterday was Valentine's Day. Marvin is a big card person, so I knew I had to do something, but I wasn't willing to join the masses who love to procrastinate and buy stuff on the day of. Fortunately I'm very creative :-), so I raided the scrapbooking section at the local Cord Camera, had a picture printed, and made this card. I started with one 12x12 sheet of cardstock, a sheet of themed "love letter" stickers, and a pair of scrapbooking scissors that make a design.

Next, I folded the cardstock in half, cut out the heart and the pretty design at the bottom with my cool scissors! (We have several pairs that I found at Big Lots for $1 apiece and the boys love them!)

I stuck on another heart the same size as the one I had cut out of the front to write the words on, and after embellishing with the stickers, this is the finished product.

I left it on his pillow with a bag of Valentines Hershey's Miniatures (he loves those. . .). Unfortunately because I'm still feeling a bit yucky and Benji had a fever, the night didn't end well. I have been promised an evening out, though. . .

ADORABLE! You're so lucky you live by that Cord Camera...I love their scrapbooking section. With Mylo being so sick, I didn't have the energy to do much...but I did make Jon a valentine from Mylo, with his handprint on it. It's more like a hand "smudge", and there's also red paint on my carpet that, after much scrubbing, is now a pink reminder to never mix babies, paint and carpet together.
