Printable: Guitar Valentine Cards

Guitar ValentineBack by popular demand, Printable Guitar Valentines!

Over the past week, I’ve been receiving emails for this guitar valentine.  I’m sorry if I haven’t returned your email, I’ve just been really busy with life.  Last weekend I was in Carmel with my husband.  It was the first time in over 12 years that we were away from our children for more than one night! Crazy. I’ve also been shuttling children to school, practices, etc.  I’m heading up Art Night at our school again.  And last, I’m leading a Divorce Care 4 Kids class at our church.  But enough about me, here’s the directions to the guitar valentines:

Supplies:

Heart Shaped Lollipops

White Card Stock

Scissors

Hole Punch

Double Stick Tape

Printable: Ginkgo Leaf Origami Paper

Printable Ginkgo Leaf Origami PaperOne thing I miss about Connecticut in the fall are the vibrant colored leaves. Now I’m surrounded by California brown.  There are some trees here that have color but it’s nothing like the trees on the east coast. So today, I’m bringing a little fall my way and yours with this ginkgo leaf origami print.  If you’re not into origami, consider using this paper for scrapbooking or cards.
