I saw a few blogs with pictures of children holding a real lollipop for a Valentine (Here is where I saw it first http://24-7-365.blogspot.com/2009/02/lavish-me-with-praise.html). My boys were TOTALLY against it (they said they are too "old") and my daughters are not in school yet but I really wanted to try it so I decided to use the concept for my daughter's thank you cards for her 3rd birthday. I finally got those done and actually in envelopes to mail...now to just get to the post office! Maybe I will get them done before her 4th bday (LOL-her bday was in January) Here is the card (the real one has her name, not a flower) :) I used Create a Critter to cut the cute heart balloon, a $1 stamp for the thanks and just printed the pictures at home . TFL.
