Scratch your Valentine

So, I don’t know about all of you, but I love Pinterest.  It has been so fun finding new ideas and putting some of them into action!  For this project we used ideas from two different places, to create a unique Valentine’s Day card for the kids to give to their friends at school.

I had never thought that there would be a way to make your own scratch off “lottery ticket”, but you can.  I found the how-to on ArtMind.  You can click HERE to go to their site.  I was so excited and knew that I had to use it somehow.  I have businesses and know that I will use it for those also, but wanted to use it in a fun way…and so the valentine card was created.  Both kids thought it would be fun to do and that their friends would like them.  I created the card in my Creative Memories software (storybook creator), printed them off and followed the rest of the directions.

Then of course you have to have some kind of treat to go with, so as we sat around Saturday morning trying to think of something Pioneer Woman came on Food Network.  She is so great and I love following her because she loves life and does things in such a way that makes them simple.  She started a recipe with chocolate cookies.  You can get that recipe HERE.  Of course chocolate and Valentines Day seem to go together, so we decided to go with it!

After a lot of fun and a very messy house at the end of the day, we had some fun Valentine’s cards to pass out to friends!
