Raccoon Valentines

Hi Crafty Friends,
I made some Racoon Valentines! I thought I hated raccoons but not these cuties! Meet Raccoon Love Letter and Raccoon with Heart Box, my new favorite critters!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is the best Valentine gift you have ever gotten?
A: Me? I had a boyfriend get me an electric blanket one year because I was always soooo cold, It was really thoughtful because he had my mom let him in my room and laid it out on my bed with rose petals.

Card #1: Raccoon Sweetie




Card #2: Envelope of Love

  3. Really cute cards! I am not a fan of raccoons either, except for their likenesses on paper! I really love that Heart Panel Die you used and the red foil paper! Pretty heart stencil too!
    A handmade Valentine card from my daughter is the best gift I've gotten!

  5. Both cards are cute, We have lots of racoon's here. I would have to say my favorite Valentine gift was probably the year my husband, when he was still my boyfriend got me a sweetheart ring and roses.

  8. After my husband retired, he would
    sneak out early in the morning and
    get me flowers (never got those
    when he was working). Then he'd
    take me out for breakfast.
    Racci is cute - fun cards.
    thanks for sharing

  9. These are both adorable! I love critters! As for favourite Valentine gift, I have received so many over the years, I can't remember anything specific, except my very first one when I was 16 - red and white carnations in a heart-shaped vase, will always remember that one because it was my first one, and my first boyfriend.
