Red dress date night
Black dress before
Tonight is for lovers
You hear him knocking at your door

Another date night
Another time of the year
Still got the jitters
Still facing the fear

Can't be late
No, not this time
Red is kind of special
Simply says to "be mine"

The first time you met him
It was hard to believe
He looked like a keeper  
You was pleased and relieved

You wore your black dress
Fitting snuggly and tight
Little did you know
It was perfect and right

Yes, he's still around
and its Valentines Day
Red dress ready
Wondering what will he say?

Woo-hoo, it's over
Date night went swell
You wore your red dress
and you worked it well!

Happy Valentine's Day Ladies!!!

How To Make Valentine's Day Gifts for Your Special Someone!


You Need:  1 Open Frame with small clothespin clips, scotch tape, roll of lace tulle and Valentine Day paper plates (dessert size).

  Measure lace tulle to width of frame and cut 4 strips equally 

  Turn frame over to backside

Place each strip across, layering one on top of the other, if necessary.  Adhere scotch tape from top to bottom on both sides.

Turn over, add paper plates to clips and hang on your wall!


You Need: Message squares, canvas board, glue stick and scissors. 

Glue your favorite love messages to a canvas board and make sure LOVE (the word, a heart or a message) is in the middle!!! ;-)
*Hint: Before gluing, lay all of your messages out to be sure they fit on your board, then glue. Build your collage by applying each message to the board.


You Need:  a rosebud flower vine (wedding department in craft store), premium cardstock, scissors, glue stick and 12 hearts cut from a heart shape template (you can create this by tracing from a heart stencil).

Cut a slit in center of each paper heart and pop the rosebuds through each slit

Glue and you are done!!!
