DIY Valentine’s Day Cards


Miranda: Soulmates only exist in the Hallmark aisle at Duane Reid Drugs

quote from Sex and The City (1998)

If that were the case, then this would be that card the Hallmark aisle.

I have a love for illustrations, proof is my fascination with Anto’s work, and when I come across good illustrations or a talented illustrator, I have to introduce myself. Have to. In the case of Heather of April Heather Art, my introduction and our dialogue led to a collaboration. I know, I know, this is a sewing blog but put don’t the fabric scissors and do some paper crafting for your lovahhh (also a quote from Sex And The City).

    This is quaint, and I like it. I think the flamingo is my favorite “accessory.” This is something I may have to download and send off to a couple of people… thanks so much for sharing!
