Valentines for little boys




Each year I make some Valentines for one of the teachers at Kate's school. She has two little sons who have lots of teachers to give Valentines to and so I like to make cute but boyish cards for them.

This old Stampendous robot set (I think it's two sets actually - one of the robots and one with the sentiments, maybe?) works perfectly! All the bits (heads, bodies, legs and arms) are separate and you can make them into robots however you like. I love the look on these two faces, so I use them the most.

Simply stamped and shaded with Copics - perfect little cards for boys' teachers!

Hi Arydth,
I have a card for you, but with my move from my old computer to my new one, it somehow LOST some of my email contacts??

Needless to say, that's not a good thing, but I do need to reach you.

Please email me at Purple_Place@verizon.net and I'll be able to add you again!!

Thanks so much !

Awww, hahaha! These are SOOOO perfect! I have yet to make the boys their Valentines and I have a robot that's never seen ink, so off I go! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ardy!! Hugs, Darnell

These are the most absolutely perfect valentines for little fellows! Perfectly colored, and perfectly framed in blues. Sweet little hearts too!!! Great cards - these make me smile. Bev

I absolutely love this stamp set and the fact that you can build your own robot. The cards are darling, if you can use that term for masculine robotic cards. ;)
