I hope everyone is enjoying a Happy Valentine's Day, whether it's with your sweetheart, your kids, your parents, or your friends

I'm a big believer in handmade Valentines. Way back when Computer Genius and I first started dating, I let him know that he didn't need to buy me an extravagant gift. All he needed to do was make me a Valentine. I just like knowing that he spent an hour with paper, scissors, and glue thinking about me. So every year he makes me a Valentine and buys me the perfect thing. He's pretty awesome.
And every year I make him a handmade Valentine. For this year's Valentine, I assembled scrapbook paper, a doily,
and 6 inches of clearanced rickrack type ribbon.
I usedglue dots lines to attach the ribbon to the Valentine. I love using glue dots in crafting, and the lines are the perfect thing for holding strips of ribbons.
I cut out some of the floral rosettes from the doily,
and placed them on top of the ribbon flower stems. Here's this year's simple sweet floral Valentine.
Inside there's a quote from Henry David Thoreau and some mushy stuff from me for CG's eyes only.
What are your Valentine's traditions? Do you always get flowers, or go for a special dinner? Or do you insist on handmade cards, too?
Thanks for popping in and crafting with me. Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!
