So, Valentine's Day isn't typically one of my favorite holidays or anything. Brian and I sometimes go out to eat and occasionally get each other a card, but we pretty much decided at the beginning of our marriage that it wasn't a big deal to either of us and we'd rather not spend the money on stuff for each other. We usually like to get the boys a little something that we set out on the kitchen table for them to find in the morning when they get up and that's always fun, but pretty much the extent of our Valentine's Day activities.
If you have kids though, you know that they love the Valentine's party at school and getting to give Valentines to all of their friends (ok, they love all the cookies, chocolate and candy too). My kids also like sending a special card to their Great Grandmas and their Grandparents too. Sometimes they like to make them and other times we go pick some out at the store, but either way, it's a nice time to remind them of how much they love them. Well, I have found the most unique, cutest Valentine cards at Flatten Me!
Flatten me is an awesome company that takes your child's picture and uses it to create a unique, one-of-a-kind personalized item such as a card or a book. It's super simple to do online by just uploading a picture of your child and they do the rest!
I was fortunate enough to be able to make up a super cute card with Asher's picture for Valentine's Day that I know his Great Grandmas, Grandparents (and a couple other people we'll be sending them to) will absolutely adore! I don't want to show it because some of them read my blog and I want it to be a surprise, but here are a couple examples of the Valentine's cards they have to offer...
Not only do they have cards that would be great for Valentine's Day, but they also have a lot of other card options that would be super cute as invitations to a special Birthday party or for whatever occasion you would like. Here are a couple of the other styles of cards they offer...
And don't forget, you can make awesome books and Journals with your child's picture too! What an awesome gift one of these would be, whether for your child or for another child! They also have dress-up stuff, which is always fun!
Right now, they are offering 10% off of the Sir Perfect & Me book until February 1st if you use the code LUVMYSIR at checkout!
I was extremely impressed by the selection, ease of ordering, customer service and quality of the cards I received. I think Flatten Me has something really great going here and I'm excited to have the opportunity to share their company with all of you!
The great people over at Flatten Me have offered one of my readers their very own set of cards of their choice! How fun is that?!

There are no guarantees though, so if you would like to choose a card style that isn't necessarily Valentine style, you may want to do that. The choice is yours!
