Making Valentines

This year I am using a quick & easy way to make my own Valentines. I am scanning a vintage Valentine (more than 100 yrs old), duplicating the image on a MS Word document and then printing them out on 8 1/2 x 11 heavy white card stock. I will then have a sheet of postcards that I can cut out, address and mail. USPS requires postcards to be between 5-6 inches in length and 3 1/2 - 4 inches in height. Postcards can be mailed with just $.27 in postage (a bargain, I think).

I'll write corny things like "I LOVE that we're friends" and mail them to friends
and relatives far and wide. Why not? It's the 12 Days of Valentine's Day!
The Twelve Days of Valentines Day
Day 2: Make a list of who you are sending Valentines to (that's Anne with an "e") and decide if you are going to make or buy this year. Then shop for what you need.

I like vintage post cards as well, Have quite a few dating before the 1920s. Sometime we need to have a time to explore each other's collections :) How many do you have?

Hi Jim! I have about 10 vintage postcards. Sometimes I frame them to display the message instead of the picture! Hope you are well!
