As I mentioned in my other post, my boyfriend is currently deployed, and loooooves homemade crafty stuff, so I try to make cute little things to send him.  However, my style is less mushy and... let's say... snarky? So, Hallmark cards these are not...

The "Homemade with Love" stamp I put on everything, as well as the little "DP <3 TL" (our initials)

Set of cards and envelopes I made, from a set of blanks I bought at Michaels.  Super easy, but I love the white ink on the black cardstock!

And, my favorite, this set of 3 with vintage style... I  just love the incongruity between the sweet, old-fashioned images and the not-so-sweet or vintage text.

(if it's too small to read, it says "I'd date you so hard, then marry the shit out of you.")

("from the first time I saw you, I knew I was going to have real and/or imaginary sex with you.")

("I miss you.  I feel like peanut butter without the jelly, bread without the butter, crack without the pipe."

And the envelopes I made

[Disclaimer: A lot of the sayings aren't mind, I got them from various locations and card sites around the 'net.]

Haha. Love them! They remind me of when my guy was away when we were first dating, all our letters ended with stuff like "Love you more than Bender loves stealing things" or other such randomness that I can't remember right now. I seriously don't know why there's not a greeting card line for people with a not so traditional sense of romance.

Also, love the look of that white ink on the black envelopes. I'm gonna have to remember that for future projects.

Very cute! I love the snarkiness and especially the ones with the old-timey images.

I have one pinned on Pinterest that I love: "Every day I fall more and more in love with you. Well, not every day. Yesterday you were pretty annoying."

Love these. I wish I could send something like this to my husband who is away so much.  But he is never in the same place for more than a couple of nights - so email and Skype is the only way to keep in touch.

awww these are fantastic! Mushy things aren't my style either, and snark is much more fun Cheesy

Love these! My guy and I are also super not-mushy. We have this whole "I hate you" thing that we say instead of "I love you". It started with him saying something about how he hated me for being in his thoughts all the time. And it totally works for me because I don't do mushy stuff well. Anywhoo....I'm so stealing some of these ideas.

elderflower - On the off chance you look at this again, stick a snarky but loving card into his luggage. Really in there, so he finds it after he's been gone a couple of days.

Craft till it hurts.

That is so funny! I especially love the one about him not being in your bed. Cute!

I love every single last one of these. They're well done and the sentiments are hilarious!
