Rachel, thank you for hosting this! There are so many beautiful stories on there!! The Valentines are all charming. I particularly love # 10 "The Sweethearts"

Anonymous said...

They are all lovely, but Number 9 "Jar of Hearts" is the one that stands out the most to me.

Linda said...

All of these are great, but 7 caught my eye...

emily said...

I wheelie like Black Eiffel!!

Kami said...

Can I vote for myself? If I can, then it's Lucky #13 - The Love Birds!

mary elizabeth said...

i vote for number 11 -- i wheelie like it! so adorable!

Danielle said...

This is such a cute contest! I really like #10...and I think it could be marketed as a card that people can slide their own pics into. Cute. Cute. Cute.

Kelly said...

#3 - LOVE this one tons!

Pedaling said...

i love #13 so cute and fun!

Debbie said...

I think #13 stands out over all the others.

Ray Lowe said...

They are all SOO good! I love the love birds, but my vote is for number 8 because I was looking through thinking which one I could make and feel like I was giving out a cute valentine. Number 8, was clever, great to do with kids or as an adult, and very cute. Great story behind it!

Tiffany said...

So cute! Number 13 wins in my book.

Amanda Conley said...

Well, I wish we could vote for two, because I love #9 and #14! How do I choose?...o.k. I einy-meeny-miney-moed and the winner is #9. Sorry #14.

onesilentwinter said...

#3!

100 Percent Cottam said...

i'm going with #13! too cute!

I vote for #13. All of the entires are fabulous but Lucky #13 wins my vote for sure.

danielle said...

#3. I love it.

Shauna said...

13 all the way!

Becky, yep said...

It's LUCKY 13 For sure!!!

Tiburon said...

It has to be #13!

Lindy said...

I like #21. Fun ideas!

Aubrey said...

Wow, such creativity! I really like #10 and #13, but I guess I can only vote for one of them...so my vote goes for #13 - just love it!!

laceyJ. said...

What a tough decision! I have to go with #8- love the idea!

Lisa said...

10-13-10-13-10-13 . . . 13!

Aesthetic Outburst... said...

OK- my valentine entry is #9, but my vote goes to #3. I love this (I collect book check out cards). Best of luck to everyone!

melissa'n'scott said...

I'm going to be very indecisive here...I really like 3...so cute...4 is very original...a different take on v-day :) 10 is definitely a keeper and 15 is so cute :) I guess to pick one it would be 3...you can add in and do so many different things with it!! So cute!

Delicate Creature said...

i'm number 14, but in the spirit of heart day, i'm voting for another - #3.

thanks for the fun, rachel. :)

Team Knit ! said...

My vote is #19- so gorgeous!

Jenny said...

I vote for #14, it's fabulous!

jack said...

14! so thoughtful and sweet. :)

jules said...

So many cute ones, but I'm going with #15.

Nick said...

#14 is by far the best!!

Anonymous said...

They are all wonderful ideas, but I would vote for #11, Wheelie!

Anonymous said...

14 is the best. If my lady gave me a card of a hot gal with puckered lips on it, I'd think that a) i have the coolest girlfriend/wife and b) she is very secure in our relationship (which is always very important).

Sandi said...

#14 Is pretty dang cute I would say. Dudes would love that card!

sweetpaul said...

I love no.10

Kelly said...

Great set -- but #11 is my first pick (I thought it was really sweet) and #4 for my second pick (love the overall look).

fuzzythoughts said...

I love #14, so that gets my vote...

shea-shea's mama said...

Wow, these are all very inspiring, each so creative in their own way. What a wonderful contest-

I really like the idea behind #4, and the vintage look of it; I also like #'s 11, 15 and 21, but the first one I saw, #3, is my choice.

Best of luck to all who submitted- awesome job!

Amy said...

I think they are all so cute, but I have to vote for mine #15.

these are great, but I LOVE #1! It's so honest and perfect. Love is about accepting him/her exactly how he/she is.

Uncle Beefy said...

Good golly this was HARD! But my final vote goes #9 Jar of Hearts. I melted with sentimentality :)

(But 3 & 4 were VERY close!)

Thanks for doing this, Rachel. Nice bit of fun for the day :)

I loved looking through these, and I finally decided to cast my vote for #21. It's got a lovely, simple design, and the perfect message. It's the one I personally would want to send to my own beau for Valentine's.
