Valentine Countdown Calender

I made this countdown calender last year for the girls, with scraps that I had around! Last year I used printables that I found around the web. But I made these cute Tags this year from a website that I LOVE!! It is  and she has some of the prettiest Free images you will ever find anywhere. Iam not kidding, anywhere! Not to mention she is one of the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of "meeting"! Also she created my banner for my Blog and Etsy shop and much more for me!! Ok, ok moving on! So there two sets that I downloaded and used, one for the "I love you because" cards, and one for "Baking and Craft" cards. For the "I love you because" I used the little girl and horse . Two things to know about me I love horse's, I have riden since I was 5 in the hunter/ Jumper show ring so I have been riding for about 25years ( you have nooo idea how old that makes me feel..), and I love ANYTHING from the 50's. So I thought they were perfect!! For each day I have two of these cards, one for each girl and I write down a reason why I love them! Lilly is really into it and loves it, Raley is getting into it! My second set that I downloaded is for the "Bake and Craft" card . With these card you can print them blank or with the sweet Valentines writing on them, I chose the blank ones. After I printed the cards off (One per day) I then laminated them so I can use them next year! I did not laminate the "I love you because" cards because I am going to put them in their scrapbooks so I will just print off a new set next year of the exact same cards because I love them!! Below are the activity and crafts that we did and are doing! I did both kinds of cards last year and Lilly remembers them and was really excited to do it again this year!!
