Valentine's Day Cards

Day Dream Kitty
I like to make my own Valentine's Day cards for the people who are closest to me. This year my theme was "Love Cats" inspired by The Cure's 80's classic hit. Well, it was a hit with ME, even if it maybe wasn't a world wide hit. Ha ha. I've really been into 80's music lately, in a nostalgic sort of way. It's what I listened to in high school, and it brings me wayyyy back! 


I made my cards out of watercolor paper, with watercolor crayons and watercolor pencils, as well as drawing pencils.


I already sent two of the cards out without scanning them to share with you, which I'm sorry about. They turned out really well, as they were modeled after cats that I know.


The other card I made is for K, so I can't share it until after he gets it. (He reads my blog, so it would be a spoiler if I posted it now!) The card here I just mailed out to my good friend, Debbie. I have a couple more to make today...


I hope that everyone is doing well, and enjoying their lives. We have our ups and downs here, but are learning to really appreciate the ups as much as possible! We had a particularly nice evening out at the local pub, just talking and munching, and realizing how lucky we are to have each other. I'm grateful every day!

Cool card! I love the soft imagery. I also love your muse with the cat scene. Happy to hear you two have been enjoying and appreciating life's ups lately. I can relate to the ups and downs of life, so it warms my heart to hear you have each other! XO
