Let's make some Valentine's Day cards

Friday's Grand Connection Fun

Valentine’s Day will soon be here. I searched the Internet and found some great ideas for custom-made Valentine cards. Hope that you'll have as much fun looking at these possibilities as I did:

Cupid's Coupons The online description says, “Cupid's Coupons, redeemable for extra-nice favors." You'll even find ideas for blank Love Checks to help you "write your own tickets to niceness.”

Make Some Valentine Cards (from Family Fun)

Pop-Up Valentines (National Wildlife Federations) Includes a cute frog pop-up Valentine

Thumb-bunny Loves You Card  (Baby Center) Even the youngest child can make this card!

Valentine E-Cards from National Wildlife Federation

3D Valentine Cards (from Highlights magazine)

And this article, Valentine Recipes and Ideas, is in the current issue of Encouraging Women With Hearts for Their Homes.

I want to help the local grands make some special Valentine cards for their parents and other loved ones. And I've already printed off color copies of "Cupid's Coupons" for our out-of-town grands. I think the ones who can write will have fun making these. And the little ones who doesn't know how to write yet ... well, they can color their coupons.

Last but not least, Valentine's reminds us of love. This month I want to focus on 1 Corinthians 13 and pray that God will fill our grandchildren's hearts with His love.

Have a great weekend,
