I guess this is kind of a book... Sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

Anyway, my fellow has seen me through some tough times as of late, and I wanted to do something as a gesture of appreciation and affection. I can't claim this idea as my own, but here it is:

What's happening on the inside...

So many things went unexpectedly with this little project... First off, I was just going off the colours of the cards and how they would match the black velvet ribbon I already had and thus did not realise I picked up pinochle cards (hence the forty-eight instead of fifty-two reasons). Then, I vastly underestimated the time it would take to punch holes in a bunch of cards, write a bunch of things, cut out tiny bits of paper, glue them to cards, and then dry all of them. I also debated about printing the reasons instead of hand-writing them since my handwriting isn't too swell, but in the end, though it would look better typed, I decided it would be sweeter for him to look back on if it was hand-written.   Grin  Hopefully he'll like it, which would make the hours totally worthwhile.

Aww, how sweet!  I'm sure he'll love it.

Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

Aw. I did this for my ex boyfriend for Valentines day and I had such a fun time coming up with ideas and finding pictures. Nice job!

I had a single-hole punch and after punching the first card, I used it as a template.
