I'm not very good at coming up with Valentines crafts, to be honest. Since I don't have kids, the only Valentiney stuff I'm interested in is stuff John might like, which generally rules out things like heart doilies or cake pops or adorable paper garlands draped around the mantle. ;)
So that left something simple, like a handmade Valentine. I mulled it over for a couple days, and then came up with a few ideas last weekend that made me giggle. Putting them together was a pain and a half - not to mention tested the limits of my Photoshop know-how - but I finally have a few options to share with you guys. I hope you like them!
Ah, but wait, there's more!
You KNOW I had to make one with a cake pun, right?
This seems a little too clean and bland, though, so I also scribbled one up for you:
You could also print the first one and then go to town on it with some markers - maybe add a little custom graffiti? Sky's the limit, really.
(The cake outline is the one used in the game that you see all over online [I used the version from this free desktop wallpaper], but the rest of the design is my own. I never plan to sell these or anything, so hopefully Valve is Ok with my using it here.)
So that's one sweet one, one punny one...what's next?
Why, something EVIL, of course!
And finally, I had to do one more sweet one, if only so I could inflict my childish scribbles on you guys again:
Feel free to save and print any of these you like, guys. (Click the pics to embiggen.) I tried to make the watermarks as unobtrusive as possible, but you can still always erase them prior to printing. Just keep the watermarks in place if you share or post these online, please - we all know how images have a way of wandering far from home on the 'web.
Oh, and this is the perfect time to announce the winner of my Portal Lemon Grenade! So, the randomly selected winner IS...the Elizabeth with a blog called The Elizabeth Archive! Congrats, Elizabeth, and please e-mail me your mailing address!
