say it with a card

When I was younger, I loved the annual tradition of making a homemade mailbox (usually from an old shoebox) and bringing it to school in preparation for Valentine's Day.  I loved the excitement that ensued at school when the big day would arrive and everyone would exchange cards with each other.   Although there is no homemade mailbox on my desk and I don't exchange cards with everyone in class, I still love making cards for my nearest and dearest.  Here are some of my favorite grown-up Valentine's this year.
