Butterfly Hugs!

I don't understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine's Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon. ~Author Unknown

While I appreciate the thought behind Valentines Day, I do not celebrate what I consider to be a "Hallmark Holiday" plus one should not be waiting for one day a year to show someone they are loved and appreciated. I don't buy a card for my husband and I certainly do not expect a card from him.

Now, that being said, because there are so many people out there who love and celebrate Valentines day, I do make them for the parents, aunts and a few friends and this card is one of them.

Hi Cara. You sounds so much like my hubby. He refuses to celebrate anything that consider a "Hallmark Holiday" as well. So we don't celebrate Valentine and nether do any of our family. So it is one holiday I don't make a card for.

Another beautiful design and so sweet Cara. I just love a clean and simple white card with a single focal image. It really make a bold statement and bring out the beauty of this butterfly. This card also serve multiple occasions - birthday, just because and even as a get well card.

Hope your weekend is going better than mine Cara and thanks for another beautiful inspiration. Sending Hugs - Christina

My husband feels the same way about Hallmark holidays, so we don't celebrate either. That's ok, I have fun making the kids a Valentine card!!

Very pretty card! I confess I'm glad hubby and I exchange cards and candy every year. I get a huge bag of peanut M&Ms. He gets Millionaires or Turtles. We'll be 29 years married in May. Kinda tradition by now, lol. xoxo
