I know there are wonderful cards out there to buy and some of them are amazing (I love looking through the cards when I have a chance and I always think what a fun job it would be to come up with them –but not have to make them!). But I have to admit, I also enjoy making them, even tho I always seem to be doing it at the last minute and they are sometimes late. I like to think the recipients appreciate the work and thought that goes into them (they seem to). I do get a few home made cards and they always mean a lot to me. I keep them and I keep thinking one day I’ll make an album to make it easier to enjoy them. My Dad makes wonderful birthday cards for the family. I think I have every one he’s sent me through the years. I always look forward to them.
Anyway, enough chatter. Here are my Valentine’s Day Cards that I made. I didn’t make many. One of these days I will actually be ahead and maybe make up some, but I usually end up making them especially for each person. Maybe that’s better anyway. These were fun, although the photos aren’t great. The lens I used doesn’t auto-focus on my D60 so I had to focus and a few of them were a little out of focus (they looked ok when I took them). By the time I realized it the cards were in the mail and gone. Oh well.
You can see what I did at Valentine’s From This and That. You still have time to make some before tomorrow.
