What do you mean it's last minute?!

I still don't have all my Valentines done.

But there's still time! Because it's not the last minute's the last minute.

Jen of JLH Jewelry (stunning work - I've bought a few pieces from her) has made some Browncoat Valentines for any of you Firefly flans fans out there. All you have to do is print and cut.

I made this birthday card using stuff I found at The Vintage Moth - but you could easily make it into a Valentine's deal. I admittedly did not have a lot of time to devote to it and nearly misspelled "birthday" - horrors! Normally I would have printed the lettering but I was really running behind! But the effect looks pretty good despite my sloppiness. I mean the contrast in colors and the layers not my horrible handwriting which is normally much neater.

There's also picnik which is great for modifying images you find.

I did this one for my friend's aunt. I went camping with Karen and her aunt and uncle and cousin this summer and there was a whole weekend's worth of Tom Selleck jokes from the men in the group because Karen's aunt made a comment about him. Well I know her aunt will appreciate it anyway.

And last but certainly not least there's Cap'n Wacky's Gallery of Unfortunate Valentines. It's not a place to GET Valentines but a place to stare in bewilderment at the strange images and wordings of cards past with a sarcastic and silly commentary on each.

I'm sure I'll get many of you looking at me askance over that one but it does tickle me.

Now get back to that cutting and gluing before it really is the last minute!
