Happy Valentines Day! I must admit a certain affinity for Valentines day. I love the colour scheme and the excuse to make pretty cards. My best friend and I exchange cards every year and sometimes a small gift.
This year I used some of my watercolour card paper to make her card. Sorry for the poor quality scans. My scanner doesn't seem to like the bumpy watercolour paper.
|Hamster Cupid! (She loves hamsters)|
|Britt is the fox and I'm the grey cat.|
For the gift I included a velvet fox colouring sheet she wanted, as well as a hand-knitted rose. The pattern originally called for a knit stem, but instead I dissected a fake-rose from the craft store and glued it to the rose. She loves blue roses, so I made her one that will last forever.
I hope everyone has a great Valentines Day, regardless of whether or not you have a romantic love in your life. There are other types of love that are just as important and which should be celebrated as well. I miss elementary school when the emphasis was put on giving cards to your friends to show them how much you love and value their friendship. And so: Happy Valentines Day to all my lovely readers. You always make my day a little bit brighter.
