So to everyone I know I am thier "Star Wars" friend and I really am one of THOSE Star Wars fans. My 3-year-old is named after a character and I have two Star Wars related tattoos.

But my fiancee is truly the love of my life. I sold most of my action figure collection to get her an engagement ring. I used my Star Wars encyclopedia to prove the name she wanted to give our baby is not related to Star Wars in any way and I don't even correct her sons when they mistakenly call a Snow Trooper a Clone Trooper and for me that's like trying to hold in a sneeze. I feel like I am gonna crack a rib.

So instead of trying to find a card with the right words in it I decided to make her a valentine that would be simple, with the most powerful and honest statement I could give her.

Plus once I came up with the idea for little lightsabers bent into hearts there was no going back!

That is so totally fantastic! My 8 year old is obsessed with Star Wars and I've been trying to figure out how to incorporate Start Wars and Valentine's  - the lightsaber hearts are pure awesome!

OMG that is so cute! You are such a sweetie! My boyfriend is a giant Star Wars geek (he asures me that "geek" is correct when I call him a "nerd"). Love the light saber hearts!

How incredibly thoughtful! I would probably get a little misty eyed if I received this message of love. Very creative and sweet!

This is awesome.  Cheesy  That's quite a strong message.  I love the lightsaber hearts! 

I had to send this on to a friend whose husband owns a stormtrooper suit, I knew she would appreciate this. Cheesy
