V-Day Cards

I am so not a Valentine's Day card person. I see all these advertisements for personalized valentines cards online and I yawn and think judgmental thoughts about commercialism and how companies just try to suck you in and steal your money.

Until I saw this blog post, which featured this family's V-day cards (which I thought were the most clever, adorable idea ever) and I knew I needed to make some with our kiddo wearing a fake mustachio (it also doesn't hurt that Shutterfly sent out an e-mail special today for 50 free prints if you just pay you get cashback if you head there via ebates).

So I cut out a mustache from some scrap fabric and headed outside with my muchkie. I'm pretty amused by some of these pictures:

I spent some time dorking around in photoshop and ended up with these:


So I've apparently been sucked into the valentines day commercialism buzz...though I do feel better about it since it was practically free. Special thanks to Tidy Mom and The Craft Monkey (and also to Tidbits from the Tremaynes whose idea was the inspiration for my inspiration piece) for sharing and helping me get bit by the V-day card bug.
