last minute DIY valentine's card

have you delayed getting your valentine's diy together until the day of? i fall into that category too many times. and that goes for any holiday actually...maybe this shall change in 2013.

so if you are looking for something to whip together quick, i have just the thing for you! this is a pretty simple diddy and all you creative birds out there could probably create some amazing drawings. my drawing skills are rather limited so i stuck to the classic valentine's heart and love. i think i love the washi tape the best....!

these watercolor pencils are a great invention. i love that you can sketch first then watercolor. (who would have thought my brush techniques are not very graceful....

so there ya have it--a card & a piece of art. {art used loosely!} 

happy valentines my friends!

  3. So simple! I think hand-made cards are so much nicer to receive than store-bought ones. Just so much more personal! Thanks for stopping by my blog,I really appreciate it :)

  4. I just barely sent my husband's valentine -- by email. Is that last minute enough? All purchases were made last week, though.
