Make, Do, Mend: Will you be my pair?

WillYouBeMyPair

Though me and my husband are not huge fans of Valentines day we still tend to give each other a little card or a present, but don’t really make a fuss out of it. I don’t know about you, but the idea of sitting in a restaurant full of couples makes me want to run for the hills!

So in the name of keeping things simple I made a little card for him.

I turned to our fruit bowl for help and took a picture of a pair of pears. I found some good free fonts through this brilliant blog and put them to use.  The line I ended up with was “Will you be my pair?” (it reminded me of primary school when we had to choose a pair to walk to the swimming baths with). The result is a super simple but sweet card with not much hassle at all.

We’ve said it before (Remember our Blue Valentine?) but I’ll say it again – in Finland Valentine’s day is called a ‘friends day’ so let’s share the love with all those special peeps in our lives!

For the foxy man in your life (or the one you’d like in your life)

One of the places I go to swoon at beautiful paper stuff is the delicious Rifle Paper Co. So with Valentine’s day just around the corner I found myself scrolling through Anna Bond‘s brilliantly illustrated cards, and happened upon this one!  How could you not LOVE it?  Might just be the ticket for the fox you have been admiring from near or far…
