Happy Wednesday Friends! Today we are re-visiting one of my previous posts--what to do with those Christmas cards that are just too pretty to throw away...
Being the thrifty girl that I am, I find it hard to trash Christmas cards after the season. I know most of us spend a good bit of time searching for that card that is just right like the person who sent me the red glittered card on the right. I won't mention any names, but hers starts with an M and ends with -o-m! Then there's this adorable little Scottie dog card I received from my sweet cousin. Ginger Grand was quite taken with it. The black dog has his own little dangling bone, while the other sports a real bell and they are standing beneath mistletoe--what's not to love?!
So rather than toss them, I was inspired to make a valentine for GG. Back in my homeschooling days, my three kids and I made our own valentines yearly. They may have gone through their Starwars, Powerpuff Girls and Lord of the Rings infatuations, but you can be sure the store bought variety was stuck on a heart doily and bedazzled with heart stickers! So....when I saw how smitten Ginger Grand was with the doggie card, I knew it would make the perfect valentine for my special boy!
