My Funny Valentine - A Birthday/Valentine Card

Isn't he cute!

On Valentine's Day 2001, we were blessed with a little Valentine boy, Jake ( although his sister may not agree at times). It seems like he arrived just a few months ago, but soon he will be 9. When he was born my doctor remarked " Finally there will be a boy that gets presents on Valentine's Day." He really enjoys the fact that his birthday is on this holiday.  Needless to say, Valentine's Day is always a day for celebration in our home. This is my birthday/valentine card for my funny Valentine, my love, Jake.

"My funny valentine, sweet comic valentine
You make me smile with my heart." 
from "My Funny Valentine"

Paper - Holiday Lounge DSP, whisper white, black, kraft card stock
Stamps - Teeny Tiny Wishes, Vintage Labels
