Happy Valentine's Day!

  
My favorite part about any holiday is the cards. A good paper heart with an arrow through it can almost make me forget that this morning I ate peanut butter straight out of the jar for breakfast.
In the spirit of Valentine's Day I thought I would share these marvelous DIY cards made by SF Bay Area based designer Stephanie Pressler. Stephanie is more artistically inclined than most humans, so all she needed was the Pantone post cards from Chronicle and a sharpie to make these beautiful designs.
For more inspiration check out her website and awesome garden blog, Opa's Garden

Below is my own (less artistic, and I totally modeled mine off Steph's) Valentine crafting adventure. Great for a lady on a budget with some paints. Have a wonderful day!
Paint in lieu of colored paper.
Hand cut. So rustic right now.
 
Finished product. Happy V Day!
