|Card size 4 7/8" x 3 3/8"|
The sentiment is from Papertrey's Keep It Simple: Valentines. That font is adorable and made me squeal with delight! The whole Keep It Simple line is brilliant, actually. The trio of hearts is from Papertrey's Love Birds set. The smaller size of the card is just right for Valentine's Day.
Now for some questions.
How many Valentine's Day cards do you make and, more importantly, send?
Typically, I only give them to my husband and sons, but this year I'm making more and sending them to my niece and nephews, sister, mom, an aunt and uncle, and perhaps a few others. The uncle sends me a valentine every year, so I figure it's time to send him some love, too. This change is really provoked more by Operation Write Home closing than anything else. It's fun to make valentines, so why not still make them and just send them myself instead of sending them to someone else to send?
Does that make sense?
But some people see Valentine's Day as a day to celebrate romantic love only, at least for adults. That seems sensible to me, too, as a part of my simple self resents how over-blown so many holidays have become. (Yes, Halloween, I'm talking about YOU!)
I'm curious what y'all think. Do you go crazy for Valentine's Day, or do you, like my sister, roll your eyes and wait for all the pink and red hearts to go away?
Note: I honestly don't think there's a right or wrong answer here...just personal preference and philosophy. I'm just interested in your thinking on the subject!
