Valentines Day Cards

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day! Here are some of the cards I made for my own loved ones!

The first is a celestial themed Valentine for my boyfriend Alex. We spent our Valentines Day at the American Museum of Natural History's Planetarium, drinking champagne under the stars. Fun Fact: The back of the card has a list of our dates and it just so happens that our 14th date was on February 14th!

The second is a Christian themed Valentine for my Mom. This Bible verse means "Love is the bond of perfection". Also, my Mom loves birds and has even owned a white Dove. :)

Lastly, a Valentine for my best friend Reebs! One day I asked Reebs what her own dream house was and took note to draw it later next to my own. The line at the bottom is "Our paths will always cross."

Nathalie Ragondet is a french illustrator that I find very inspiring. I encourage you to explore her blog and look at her very talented illustrations. I reached out to her over email a few months back to tell her how much I admire her work. Here is a quote from her I would like to share from our short exchange that I think is great advice for all creators.

"There is always something to learn or discover and it's good to practice as much as possible, to be curious and open to the comments one can do about your work, and don't forget to have fun of course. "

Don't forget to have fun everyone! :)
