My Jewish Valentines

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!  This post is a day later than I’d intended but I spent yesterday getting a steroid shot in my hip (and yes, I am only 34!).  All I have to say about that is OUCH!  And, no, not a fun way to spend the day.  So, as a result this post is a day late and most of the cards I am about to share with you are still sitting by the front door awaiting a mail drop.  But, it’s the thought that counts, right?

As I mentioned in last week’s post, take it or leave it, I love Valentine’s Day.  I think it’s a great excuse to remind people you care about them and of course yet another time to break out the card-making supplies.  Kveller had a fantastic piece yesterday: Should Jews Celebrate Valentine’s Day?.  If you want more intellectual food for thought, check it out.  Today I wanted to share with you my attempt at adding a Jewish twist in this year’s homemade Valentine’s cards by incorporating some Hebrew.  Now, I have to tell you, I LOVE alphabet stamps!  I have too many sets to admit in writing.  But, Hebrew alphabets are a totally different story than English ones and nearly impossible to find in rubber stamp form.  So, I have been on the hunt for quite a while and was very pleased to luck out and get this now out of production set still shrink wrapped on eBay complete with book and packaged in a wood box.

These, along with my Teresa Collins Blingage Alphabet and some classic Valentine colors were the inspiration for my cards:

What do you think?  I totally love that these could really be used for any occasion where you want to say I love you!  Now I need to start thinking about Purim projects…oy!
