valentine's day cards

i was working on a photo project today and came across these pictures which i realized i never put online with my other valentine's day pics because i didn't want to ruin the surprise for anyone who might be receiving them. so now i can share!

in case you're looking for a crafty (and inexpensive) idea for valentine's day next year (hey, i saw they've got christmas decorations out at hobby lobby now... it's never too early to start planning these things) here's an idea for valentine's day cards for your loved ones.

i had photos with lovey heart borders printed through shutterfly.

then i just filled them out like postcards, added some stickers for pizazz and dropped them in the mail.

when i walked into the post office to find out if i could do this (if i couldn't mail them as postcards i was just going to put them in envelopes, but they'd still look like postcards) the person behind the counter said (with a lot of attitude) "well you can... but i don't know if you'd want to."

as far as i know they all made it.

so there you go. cards with a personal touch printed and shipped for less than $.45 each!
