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.

Scratch and Win Valentines

These Valentines are like the lottery tickets that you scratch off the silver spot to see if you are a winner. But with these, every heart is a winner. It's just that some might be better than others. We printed the cards, including the prizes, on the computer. Then we covered the row of prizes with clear packing tape (you could use clear contact paper). Then paint over the prize answers with a mixture of 1 part liquid dish detergent (I used Dawn) and 2 part silver paint. It may take more than one coat. I think I was in too big of a hurry so mine turned out a little bumpy (the dish detergent makes the paint bubbly). It would probably be smoother if you could do several thin coats of paint. Make sure you print "Scratch One" under the hearts. I made some coupons and some plain cards. You can say what ever you want on them, but, mine said:

Good for 1 Movie (Your choice), (My choice), (Forget the movie, lets do something else).
Good for 1 (Kiss), (Chocolate Kiss), (Evening Full Of Kisses).
Good for 1 Massage (Shoulders), (Feet), (Full Body).
Good for Dinner at Choose 3 different restaurants.
Do You (Love Me, Too), (Want a Kiss), (Wanna Dance).
I Dream About (Only You), (Growing Old With You), (You, Even When I'm Awake).
You + Me = (Bliss), (A Perfect Pair), (Happily Ever After).
You Make Me (Happy), (Smile), (Complete).


  1. How fun! Im excited to make my own scrathers! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. What a cute idea!

  3. I made these for my family for Valentines day. THey were such a big hit. I made them with word play on the word ice cream and the scratch offs were different size ice cream cones. Everyone was a good sport and it was a fantasticly easy thing to do. Thank you so much for your great ideas
