A Valentine for the Grandparents

{Happy Tuesday!} ok, bring on the cupids, sappy love quotes, and chalky conversation hearts….because this crafter is officially in Valentine’s Day mode! {took me long enough, huh?}

Not only am I doing Grandparent Valentines for the first time this year {yes, the oldest is 3.} but I also DESIGNED them myself! I am first to admit that I am HORRIBLE, no ATROCIOUS, at graphic design. So this little number may not be fancy schmancy, but I know the grandparents will love i…..t because it has pictures of their {fave} grandkids on it! {wink wink}
idea for grandparent valentine

I snapped pics of the boys holding a little chalkboard message to send their grandparent’s a photo valentine. They cooperated, for the most part. You know how its always an adventure taking picture of kids!! lol Fun memories.

I designed this photo card in Picasa using the Grid option while making a Collage. I printed it out on HP Premium Plus Photo Paper in soft gloss and I have some gorgeous little photo valentines to send to their grandma’s and grandpa’s. sweet! {now to remember to pick up some stamps….}

Do your kids send Valentine’s to their Grandparents?

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    We are sending vday photo cards but I am not as crafty as you – I rely on the good old Walgreens which is a pretty easy alternative. Well, easy to do the card part just as hard to do the taking the picture part:)
