Crafty Cupids

Happy Valentine's Day! For the second year running, the Florida Etsy Street Team (FEST) has given Valentine's cards to an organization in the community. Last year it was an Assisted Living Facility for the elderly, this year we picked All Children's Hospital. I volunteered again to collect and deliver the cards and although we didn't get to visit with the children (so as not to spread germs) it was a great opportunity to hopefully bring a smile to some little ones' faces and teach Elle about giving.

I made a really simple little card... just a word search of Valentiney words printed on white card stock, cut out, and the corners rounded (gotta love the Creative Memories corner rounder!).

Check out all these great Valentines other FESTers sent in... we're a talented bunch!


I didn't count them individually, but I'm pretty sure we had close to 75 handmade Valentine's to give. Thank you so much to those of you who contributed: Purple Cloud Studio, Wonderful Wire, The Crafty Hag, The Geloneck Family, Miele Melograno, Becky Sinn, 23rd Street Vintage, Kelley Love Designs, and Me - Elle Belle :)
