I Made a Pretty Valentine for You
Card verse –
Dear little friend,
I send you here
With heart sincere,
A loving line;
And it will be
A joy to me,
To get from you
Be My Valentine!
A Victorian Valentine’s Day card inspired my Bonnet Girl art. Thanks to the iPad, I no longer feel like a couch potato because I can draw and paint with my apps, anywhere. I completed this illustration on the sofa with the inkPad app, watching the Iowa Caucus [Feb. 1, 2016].
This card’s sentimental verse celebrates the beloved tradition of giving and receiving a valentine.
If you like vintage postcards, see a collection on my companion website Estate Trinkets & Treasures. Click the thumbnail, and it opens to a larger image with details about the card.
Pull out your scissors, colored paper, and glue and mail someone you love a valentine! Put a stamp on it!
Love Poetry for Mom
Inspired by the classic verse, “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue …” grandson Eric made a Valentine’s Day card for his mom during his frogs and snails stage, inscribed:
Roses are red, violets are blue. If you were a flower, I would pick you! -Love, Eric
