Beautiful Valentine Cards

I wanted to encourage my grandchildren Corey and Henry to make some Valentine Cards about a week ago.  I had been inspired by my daughter Jessica when she posted on her very creative blog the Valentine Cards she made with her children (also my grandchildren:)). Click here to see her post and here to get instructions to make the cards.

I purchased a package of blank cards from Michael's Art and Craft Store. Also bought some new crayons and watercolor paints from our local Walmart. The cards from Michael's are so great...there are 50 cards and envelopes in a pack.  I use them regularly.  They were on sale the day I purchased them but if they are not on sale, I usually use a discount coupon.

My husband Jerry who teaches a Special Education class (ages 8-11 years old) in a local elementary school is going to have his students make these this week.  It really is a great project for kids.

Corey, Henry and I had so much fun making these cards.  I just addressed the envelopes and they will be mailed tomorrow!

 Here are Corey and Henry with two of their favorite cards.

 As you can tell we had fun also taking the photos.

 I sure love these two ....Corey, so fun and artistic...

.... Henry, so tender hearted and happy.
 The beautiful Valentine Cards.

I love you Corey and Henry.......Love Nanny
