Sisterly Eye Rolling

Two more Valentine cards! Four and counting. Luckily (?) - I only have friends that number in the single digits. Maybe I should be a little nicer!

Well, truth be told...there are Facebook "friends", there are friends, and then there are card-worthy friends... Not all friends are created equally - you know what I mean?

Actually, I don't usually send the cards I make. I make them and give them away for other people to send. For some unknown reason I just was in the mood for Valentine cards! This is very uncharacteristic of me as I am so NOT sentimental or mushy! Just ask my siblings! They would probably say - "You have FRIENDS?!" Of course they would say this while holding a glass of wine, lots of laughter, and don't forget some eye-rolling!

I found a set of 8 pre-made tags (twine included) at Target in my favorite aisle and picked these up for the bargain price of one dollar! They are just the right size for my goofy 'coin envelope cards'. Let me see...of the box of 500 (3 x 5 inch envelopes) I used approximately one dozen! WHOOOP!!! Anybody need any coin envelopes? Jeepers! What was I thinking!?

  1. By the number of Valentine's you've posted the last couple of days, I can already tell you have more friends than me!
    Love these - and that second one with the stripes really caught my eye - in a good way! Love it!!! Two wonderful cards Nancy.
    I've never even heard of coin envelopes (I guess I don't get out much or something) but 500 really is a ton of envies for sure!
