Zombies for Valentines?

Sure, why not? Zombies need a little love, too.

I thought my youngest grandson would like a zombie on his Valentine - so here's a cute one from the Silhouette Online Store (Design ID #47397).

Doesn't he look rather timid and scared, holding his little scarred up heart? I've done a little inking on his body parts, and I actually just drew in the scars on the heart he is clutching. The design calls for the Cameo to cut them, but my blade is getting a little dull, and since they're so small, they wouldn't cut cleanly. I think drawing them on does the trick, though.

I liked his spiky hair and raggedy outfit. This image took a little patience to cut, because there are several layers, but it wasn't difficult, once cut, to put them all together.

I left the inside quite plain, with a stamped sentiment and room to write a personal note.

I think I made about 25 Valentines this year. It seems like it was more than in previous years. With several birthdays for family members and friends in February, it's been a busy month!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Aw. He's not a very scary zombie, is he, Cheryl, with that timid expression on his face! "Pleeeease will you be my Valentine?" I can just picture the lady zombie he is besotted with! And I love how you hand-drew the scars on his heart from all the past lady zombies who turned him down! I hope this year his lady love said yes!! Hugs, Darnell

Omg that's just hilarious Cheryl! I would never have thought of using a zombie on a Valentine!
I only gave 1 card this year, but it's becoming much more American over here - when I was young you only gave a card to the boy you liked, but now in school they give cards to all their friends too!
