Last Minute Valentine's Day Cards.

I am totally a "Last Minute Larry/Larrena" when it comes to holiday cards.  Well, I have really outdone myself this time as I have only just finished my Dearheart's Valentine's Day cards! I guess it could have been worse and been after Valentine's Day, right?  Anyway, that's my story and I am sticking to it.  *shifty*  I guess the real big deal about Valentine's Day for us is that it is also our wedding anniversary.  Corny I know.  So without further ado, please let me introduce you to Last Minute Larrena's Valentine's Day cards:

Those are increadible last minute cards! I find if I wait that long I end up with well... cards that look like I've rushed it. These look like you've taken your time, thought them through, and they are beautiful. I especially like the details on the first one - so many fun elements!

Can't believe these were last minute cards. I think they looked incredibly detailed and well thought out. You really are a talented designer. Vintage is definitely your style. Great job.
