We don’t take Valentine’s day too seriously around here, but it’s still nice to do a little something sweet to celebrate the day. At least, I think so;)

On our first V-day together, Jimmy and I exchanged books and I still think books make a great gift (for a relatively small investment too). It forces you to really think about what the recipient would enjoy receiving. This year, Jimmy’s getting a hard cover book about his favorite college football team.
Over the weekend, I also had some fun playing around with my Silhouette machine making homemade cards.
Before I had a Silhouette, I always wondered how people used it, but it’s pretty easy. I downloaded these images for $1 each:
Which look like this on your screen just before you make the cuts.
I had to cut the images three times, on different colored paper, to achieve this:
After using spray adhesive to assemble the images, they looked like this:
It’s so fun making these cards, I can’t wait to make more:)
and to my sweet baby James . . .
