Jac o' lyn Murphy: For Valentine's Day...all is fair in Love and War...

For Valentine's Day...all is fair in Love and War...

ATTENTION!
Harrison is not 
camouflaging his feelings this Valentine's Day.

The troops are ready to salute his classmates...




on a side note...my 12 year old daughter says that I should not use such,
"Old Lady" songs...
Her suggestion is, "I would Catch a Grenade for you" by Bruno Mars
(darn kids, I hate it when they are right!)

Purchase them HERE!

  1. Oh my goodness, this is great! My boys would have LOVED these when they were giving out Valentines! I always found it so challenging to find a solution for something they could give without feeling too girlie! This is perfect.

    I'm stopping by from Today's Creative Blog

  2. LOVE these!!! I was laughing when I read the phrases because I know almost all the words to that song (including the Bruno Mars song!). Guess that goes with having a 12 year old girl in the house.

    You are sooooo creative!

  40. These are ADORABLE. I don't have a son but if I did, I would be using this idea.

    *I had a hard time tracking you down, I saw your cute valentine's at a DIY Valentine's competition but it wouldn't link through to your post :(. So, I googled it and see that you've been featured a bunch of places and I finally found my way here. So, now I'll be pinning directly from the source.

    Brilliant!

  41. Great!!! And your blog is amazing! Kisses from Argentina!
