Valentine’s Frog Card

ValentineFrogCard
My daughter just loves frogs at the moment, so I made her Valentine with a frog just for her!  I got the image offline, it is a free color page.  The I traced it onto white cardstock with sharpie’s and colored it in using colored pencils.  I chalked the edges to add a little bit of more color.

 

Since her card isn’t going into an envelope, I folded it so that I could close it.  I chose this Bible verse because I think she’ll like it and wrote a little note for her on the inside.
Finally: The back.  The card folds over on itself to close up easily but I didn’t want to leave it blank, just looked too plain!  I did the hearts using my Cricut machine, but you can change up the design if you don’t have access to one.  Other than that, it’s just layered paper!  Hope you enjoyed!!!

Valentines Day Love Jar In Every Language

 LoveJarElizabeth Barrett Browning wrote:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise,
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints -I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
While I am not personally talented in writing poetry, the closest way I could think of to point out the many depths of my love was to tell him in every language I could find.  Though I didn’t count them I think I got the point across.  I wanted to tell my husband how much I loved him for Valentine’s Day, so I did.  The craft is completely simple but it gets the point across.  You could also write  I took a glass jar (I use old ones but you can buy them at craft stores if you like) and used my Cricut machine to print off little hearts.  I then wrote on every heart ‘I Love You’ in a different language and wrote what language it was underneath.

 

These are a few of the hearts.  I used Pink, Red, and White cardstock.  In order to fit them in the jar, I had to fold the hearts, but it turned out very well.  Here is a link so that you can save time from looking up all of the different languages.
