finger painted valentines

although i'm perpetually single, i'm lucky enough to have too many girlfriends to count. so come valentine's day, i like to show my love by sending out snail mail to my gals wishing them a great day. this year i was feeling especially crafty, so i decided to finger paint my heart-shaped valentines and their coordinating envelopes. this project quickly turned into a big (yet pretty) mess, and the end result gave me all the heart eyes. - carm
