Happy Valentine’s Day!

This year, since the kids are in playschool, they need some valentines to pass out to their classmates.  There were some great free templates out there for valentines, so this year I made valentines for the kids.  Here is the front and back of Piper’s valentines:

I hated for 3 of my 4 kids not to have valentines, so of course I made some for Penelope!

I actually designed the back of Penelope’s cards myself.  The main reason was that her card template didn’t have a back to it.  The secondary reason is that I wanted a place to write a note to the recipient.  See, within a month after Penelope was born I was done with the thank you notes for her gifts.  Back in December I found the entire stack of thank you notes in my bedside table, not mailed.  CRAP.  I would love to blame that one on Gary, but I haven’t figured out a way to pin it on him yet.  Some of the thank you notes still didn’t have addresses, but apparently I just thought I was done with them all and had sent them on their way.  AND I remembered putting such things in there as “I can’t wait for you to meet Penelope” which would be incredibly outdated as almost all of the recipients have met Penelope, so it wasn’t like I could just drop them in the mail.  I sent out Penelope’s valentines with a note on the back so that they also served as a thank you note.  Hopefully the adorably cute baby on the front of the card made up for the lateness!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!

Those cards are great! Bahahahaha, and I totally cracked up when I read "I haven’t figured out a way to pin it on him yet." Priceless!

Those are adorable!

I was good and did some custom card last year...this year, I flat ran out of time.

Have you figured out a way to nail it to Gary, yet?
