valentine card ideas, especially for boys.

ok, last minute people like me...here are some cute ideas for cards if you haven't bought any yet.
 there are a ton of cute printables out there for balentimes day. not a typo. it's almost like you don't even need to go to the store and buy those cheesy ones. unless your kids beg for them. then yes, go right ahead...there is something nostalgic about going to the store and picking out your cards.

anyway, when you have a son, you start to realize how there are a ton of girly valentines out there and not a ton for the little guys. so here is what i love for the manchild in your life...although they seriously could work for girls too.

anyway, layne drew a couple of things on a piece of paper tonight and i thought they were so great...so i asked him if we could turn them into valentines and he agreed. score!
i just scanned it into the computer and added font.


i made it into 4's and printed it on card stock.

 i added a little washer necklace that the kids could wear, as my son's school doesn't allow candy on valentine's day. rude. so we had to get creative.

the masking tape is in lieu of cute washi tape that you (a classier lady) might have on hand. i always say, masking tape adds a touch of texan class.

now if you're looking for some easy peasy free ideas, here are my faves.

these sucker super hero's 

i can't find who to give credit for these too. but it looks pretty self explanatory. and adorable.

both of these cute printables are so cute from armommy.



these are just freaking too cute. 


and these printables are a little more grown up from jones design. i heart them. get it?! not necessarily for boys but they aren't so over the top feminine... maybe. who cares. they're great.

ok, get on it. valentine's day is approaching fast!
