Valentine’s Day is Nearing…

This means only one thing: hand made cards coming soon.

I was going through my vast digital collection of photos this evening, while Eric is chaperoning a middle school dance, and found this old gem.  I have made Valentine’s Day cards as long as I can remember.  Some years I made collage cards, but most years I made linoleum block prints.  Some years I was ambitious and sent them out like Christmas cards.  Some years I only give them to those closest to me.  I have yet to decide on this year’s theme, media, and quantity.  I am fairly sure I made this dreaming cat card in college.  I no longer have any prints of it, just the linoleum block.  

Actually, scratch that, Valentine’s Day means two things: 

Dunkin Donuts heart donuts!  

Want to try making your own block print?  You will need a set of these.  More on block printing coming soon.
