{frugal} VALENTINES:

Can you take a guess what I made em' out of???
No???
.....
Now can you???
FREE paint sample cards.
Free.
Incase you were wondering.
***

Okay, it wasn't QUITE that simple. I hurried to Home Depot but then while I was picking out paint sample cards, an older gentlemen wanting to help asked me what I was painting...
I panicked. a little.
Do I tell him I'm taking these to use of my own free will and risk going to jail for hardtime, or do I make up a paint project? It came to me quickly...
"I'm just doing a craft project."
Am I so deceiving? I'm sharing love though.
I'm sharing love.
So when you make it home safe (with only a slight heavy guilt for taking free cards) Cut off the words (that you're able) like so...

Right now, Micheals has bags of cute Valentine foam or felt stickers. (If you're a stamper, this will be easier, you can just use stamps...
but I'm not a stamper)
I spent $4 and got a few bags of fun V-day lovin.


My top favorites:

OWL ALWAYS LOVE YOU

KISSES AND HUGS

HEARTS IN A ROW

and
MY LOVE MUFFIN

Do what you want with the back of the card :)
(This is where I pretend to have good hand writing and then it hits me like a Ton of bricks that I surely do not...)
These are definitely unique compared to the excessive cartoon characters you find plastered on every shelf in the store and...

Can you get more frugal than this?
I submit that you cannot :)
