Who doesn’t love a cheesy mustache??

And who doesn’t really love an even cheesier play on words?  My son is thrilled with the new Valentines I designed for him to hand out this year.  We added a photo taken by my talented friend Sally Davidson, and his cards are now perfect for sharing with his third-grade classmates!

Need a last-minute laugh to give to your friends?  You’re in luck!  We’ll share our printable as our latest freebie.  You can download the file here.   Print double-sided, cut and fold!  As always, please do not redistribute or sell my designs!  Enjoy!!


Viridian Design Studio is offering beautiful packages for Valentine’s Day (a week from Monday!)  If you read my other post <<freebie alert!>> you’ll remember that I designed two collections for you to choose from for your special someone.  I featured the LOVE YOU (a Bushel & a Peck) gift boxes in my Valentine’s Day Collaboration. This week, I’ve got more lovely pictures (thank you Sally Davidson Photography!) show-casing the coordinating suite, Everything’s Coming up Roses:

I used the same color palette (while also adding a little PINK! to this collection) and the same fonts for both sets.  This creates continuity within the two suites.  But where LOVE YOU.. had a modern print paired with whimsical artwork, Coming Up Roses sticks to more traditional, romantic elements:  vintage swirls, pinstripes, and bracket frames all come together for a collection that will make anyone swoon!  French couture-inspired, these gift boxes are elegant (and affordable) Valentines!  And of course, who could resist Viridian’s darling arrangements or Jen the Cookie Chick’s yummy treats?  Contact Viridian Design Studio:  830.257.2067 or via email at to place your order!

I had the best time yesterday at a photoshoot for two new Valentine collections I created for Viridian Design Studio!  Add Tricia’s beautiful tablescapes and arrangements to Jen the Cookie Chick‘s yummy goodies and Sally Davidson‘s gorgeous images and you couldn’t have asked for a more perfect combination!  These ladies are super talented and a joy to work with!  I look forward to many future collaborations!

Check back next week for a full feature and some free party downloads from my new I LOVE YOU (a Bushel and a Peck) Valentine Party Collection!  My mother-in-law always sang the song to E and e when they were babies; I wanted to make something that was sweet-but-not-so-pink (since I’m the mom of two boys!) and Nana’s tune inspired . . .

Remember a few posts ago when I said I have some very talented photographers for friends? One is Jennifer Lankford.  She’s great!  Check out her site!

I’m working on some designs for a Valentine’s Special Jenn will be running in the near future. When creating, inspiration can come from any where; this card I’ve actually wanted to make for a while.  The idea began when I was listening to the Sondre Lerche cover of Let My Love Open the Door. I originally heard it when we went to the movie Dan in Real Life. Very quickly afterwards, I bought the soundtrack and the song has been on my iPod’s Top Played list ever since! Every time I listen to it, I think of those beautiful Tiffany charms that are shaped like skeleton keys. One has a heart on top… So I started with drawing the charm first, and the rest followed:

The colors in the card and Jennifer’s picture went together perfectly, and we didn’t even plan it!  LOVE it when that happens!!  I’m working on a few more cards and we’ll post them when Jennifer and I can get together and add her photography talent to the creative process!  Make sure you don’t miss out on this opportunity to have a custom Valentine that will become a keepsake!  Here’s more information about Jennifer’s special:
