Marriage is the best thing in my life. When we openly and privately express our love for each other it only serves to strengthen our relationships. When I am actively thinking of ways to tell my husband how much I love him, it makes me love him more. I realize how happy he makes me and I appreciate everything about him. I see things and think, "How can I use that object to tell him I love him?" This makes me think of him all the time. It makes our marriage stronger and it makes us both happier.

The first Valentines I ever gave to my husband were like these. We were in high school. My older sister had found the patterns when she was in college and gave them to me. I made several more for him while we were in college. I'm not sure that it made him fall in love with me, but at least they kept his attention until he did. I made them from colored card stock. But you could just download them and color them if you want. However, the patterns are really just sketches so you might still have to improve them.
The first is a fireman. His heart says "You Set My Heart On Fire".

The next one is a cat or a tiger, depending on what color you make his stripes. His snout lifts up and it says either, "You're My Purrr-fect Valentine", or "You're Grrrreat".
When you lift the tag on the Dog it says "Without You".

The lion's snout lift up and it says either "I Love You" or I Think You're Grrrreat!"
The heart on the Owl says, "Guess Whooo", When you lift his arm it says, "Loves You". Lift his glasses and it says, "Eye Do".

The bear has a sign on the outside that says, "I Love You". When he opens his arms it says, "This Much".

The Hippo Says "Happy Valentine's Day". Under her fan it says, "From Your Biggest Fan".

On the front of the Skunk card it says "It Stinks". When you lift up the arm it says, "When You're Not Around".


  1. Holy cow! I think these are the cutest cards I have ever seen. Who need Hallmark when there is blogs like this. :-)

  2. These are so cute! I cannot wait to pull one of these out for my husband on valentines day. He will get a kick out of them. I also love the meal idea. You have so many wonderful ideas!
