It’s officially less than two weeks until Valentine’s Day! Do you your gifts ready? Since my boyfriend and I are currently looking for an abode to share I decided to buy him something I know he’ll use again and again for Valentine’s Day – a french press. I also bought him some whole bean organic fair trade coffee from Larry’s Beans to pair with it. He loves their Bean Martin Roast, but Fresh Market happened to have some of their El Salvador Dali Blend here locally so I picked up some of it for him to try. And lucky me. I happened to walk in on my guy making reservations for me for Valentine’s Day at one of my favorite restaurants downtown – Lucky.

Handmade Valentine’s Day Cards – Of a Non-Traditional Sort

Valentine’s Day is on it’s way, and for me, that brings back fond memories of receiving Valentine’s Day cards through elementary school exchanges – even from the boys you couldn’t stand or the jealous little girls who would knock you off the monkey bars on the playground. How long did we keep those silly little cards before our moms finally tossed them anyway? They were so prized because they were so much fun. Sentiment on Valentine’s Day is especially appropriate though, I think. But that doesn’t mean it has to be overly romantic or even mushy. They can still be fun just like when we were kids. I for one appreciate Valentine’s cards that are witty, raw and fun. They still possess a little romance, just in an unexpected way. Therefore I’ll be giving some of my favorite people handmade Valentine’s Day cards from Julie Ann Art!
The boyfriend, well, he’ll be getting a card assuring him that he’s my favorite thing to do. But if that’s a little too sultry for your sensibilities…
Then let your loved one know it’s just “you and me” with this cute card that features a heart engraved on wood proclaiming that your love is forever.
Or skip any hint of romance all together with a card that’s basically crap. Whatever you decide to say and however you decide to say it, Julie Ann Art has the perfect way to get your point across this Valentine’s Day. Whether witty or charming or just plain freaky, her fun and brilliantly designed 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ cards all come blank inside for sharing your own private message and are printed on quality, 80lb. acid-free white card stock.
Be sure to have fun with some of Julie’s other cards for Valentine’s Day as well with messages like “You’re my favorite boyfriend,” “You’re my favorite bedhog,” and “You’re my favorite baby daddy.” To view Julie’s full line of Valentine’s Day and other greeting cards, visit her shop online. All of the cards from Julie Ann Art are high quality, professionally printed cards featuring original designs by Julie herself that you’ll be proud to share with that special someone who drives you crazy.
What’s your favorite way to say “I care”?

Tell your special someone just how much you love them with a Valentine’s Day Card! I have created two very special “love bird” note cards that are perfect for sending that romantic note or giving as Valentine’s Day cards.

Created from my own original art collages, these two note cards feature two love birds kissing on a branch and a single bird delivering his own special love letter to a mailbox. These Valentine’s or sweetheart cards measure 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and fit inside standard invitation sized envelopes available from most craft or office supply stores. Simply print the cards onto a sheet of cardstock, cut the page in half, fold, and include your handwritten message inside. You can download these cute little love bird cards here. You can also download free love inspired wrapping paper and gift tags for Valentine’s Day here.
