Thread: Hearts Galore Valentine Chat with Merr

Hybrid View

  1. Smile Hearts Galore Valentine Chat with Merr

    :
    Hi Everyone!


    Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.
- Leo Tolstoy
    With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we are going to chat about dressing up our scrapbook pages and greeting cards with hearts!



    What do you think of when you think of Valentine’s Day?

    I think of:
    Roses and romance
    Chocolate candy
    and, of course, hearts on scrapbook pages and Valentines

    Love that quote Merr!

    When I think of valentine's day I think of flowers and chocolate and sentimental cards!

    Randy and I always take a lot of time when choosing just the right card for each other!
    And for Kelly, it's always meant a special present that usually includes a stuffed animal of sorts!

  5. Hi Valerie and Katie!

    My DH and I have been exchanging the same Valentine card for over 30 years! One year I saved the card he gave me and gave it back to him and he saved it and gave it me and so on and so on! I have to find it so I can give it to him this year!

    Ok, Ang. Katie's been alerted. She'll figure it out soon, I'm sure.

    Sorry!

    So sorry you've had trouble, Brenda. When did you last try, Brenda? Katie thought she had it fixed. I'm checking with her again.

    That is so sweet!!! I know it's not Valentine related-but I unknowingly gave my dad the same Birthday card at least 3 years in a row- Finally, he told me, I guess I really liked that card! After I compared them, I noticed that the size was a bit different for each year, but the pic and the sentiment stayed the same. I think even at 91, he had a better memory than me!
