Wheels is a rock star when it comes to choosing cards! We became officially engaged on June 10 – my parent’s wedding anniversary. We were apart for much of our engagement, but on the tenth of the month without fail I would receive a “monthiversary” card from him. And after we were married, the sweet, heartfelt cards continued four times a year. My birthday, our anniversary, Christmas and Valentine’s Day. I treasure every one — but I never go back to reread them and they are usually in a box in the closet. And this year, I decided the Valentine cards deserved to be showcased!
I went through the box and chose nine cards about the same size and with a white, gold or red color theme. Then I punched a hole in the corner and tied each card onto a Christmas string of red beads. I dove into the stash and came up with ten hearts, and a pile of scrapbook embellishments. I spelled out V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E on the hearts and embellished them with glitter, buttons and other pretties. Then I fastened them to the beads between each of the nine cards. Needed a little fluff –curlies, and silk posies. Some more cards on the mantel, the pink rose wreath on top of the silver mirror, and a little more fluff.
You can find a little fluff at your house to make February 14 — or any day — a special day and celebrate relationships with the special people in your life, too!
