Love mail...

I LOVE sending handmade Valentines!
each one created with lots and lots of love!

this year I decided to use things I had on hand already...
-fabric scraps
-glitter (of course!)
-needle & thread
-and plain natural cards and envelopes

I simply cut three various sized hearts...
layered them from largest to smallest,
and hand-stitched around the smallest heart only...
frayed the edges of the fabric a bit (I love the shabby look)
and then added a small glittered kiss & hug...

inside I wrote a Valentine greeting...
then loaded the card with a few "surprises"
(a.k.a. heart confetti and a little punched heart with a scripture verse)

I just love thinking of our sweet family & friends opening their cards
and out falling their very own special little Valentine party!
their "love mail"!

Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!
