Last Minute Valentine’s – Quick and Easy!

Mr TS and I don’t really ‘do’ Valentine’s – I know he’s mine and he knows I’m his and that’s all that matters.

I do, however, like a quick and easy last minute Valentine’s craft/bake/card, here are some of my favourites from my own back catalogue followed by a few by people I like! Click on the images to be whizzed off to the full post for each idea.

  2. So pretty! We don’t really do Valentine’s either but this morning I was surprised with not one, but TWO cards on the doormat. One from each of my boys :-)

    • Perfect! Bless them!
