I admit it I am sentimental and this time of the year love is in the air not just because Valentine’s Day is around the corner but in a few week’s it’s my wedding anniversary.  In our family we enjoy giving each other cards. I know β€˜It’s Okay To Cry’, I like to embrace my emotions and sentiment from my loved ones. With being sentimental I keep all the cards my husband and children give me which  I will cherish always. Sure store-bought cards are great but what could be even better than to have a personalized greeting card? The Cardstore offers greeting cards that you can customize for that special someone from adding names, photos, and messages and  have them conveniently delivered to your home or theirs making your greeting card unique and one of a kind! 


This Valentine’s Day will be my baby’s first Valentine’s so I made her a custom card. Sure at 9 months she cannot read it but I hold onto it for her.

The inside of the card which I personalized with her name and added a sweet photo of her.

I was able to choose from a variety of fonts as well as colors in her card. I stuck with the red theme because the pre-made message was in red and it matched the dress in her photo inside the card. 


Next I made a card of my true Valentine – my husband! 

When i purchase greeting cards for my husband i mix it up sometimes giving him mushy or funny cards, this time I made him a card that had a little bit of both.

On the inside I was able to add a photo of the two of use together which is very rare because most photo’s of us include at least one of our 5 children.  Then I matched the color font with the rest of the card in red.

Did you know that men are sentimental too? My husband is like myself, he saves greeting cards  our children have given him as well as myself.  Men may act all rough and tough but men cry, I have seen it only a hand few of times with my husband but those moments are very special because it shows his soft side!
