Hello paper crafters!  I come to you from the land of knitting and beading, to bring to you my very first paper craft: a valentine for my best friend Kati & her hubby Steve!

I work at a girls boarding school, and for Valentine's Day, we put out a table of card making supplies and had each girl make a valentine for someone else.  I walked by the table of papers every day, and finally decided I would give it a go.  I know it's simple, but I'm super happy with it:

It's just plain pink cardstock, with some green scrapbook paper pasted on for the heart.  The back white is recycled computer paper.  I did the lettering freehand, based off of Californian font, in my favorite ultra-fine Sharpie.  The back is set up like a postcard, with little pink boxes for the message and the address and the stamp.  (Since it's already addressed, I didn't want to post that picture, obviously!)

I had so much fun making this card, that I have a feeling I have many more in my future!

Happy Valentine's Day!
