    Two Bee Mine Valentines from YouTube

    Two Bee Mine Valentines Starting the weekend off with some fun Valentine ideas. Two Bee Mine Valentines to be more specific. Both were from YouTube videos so you will find them pretty easily. Starting off with this cute card. Once upon a time we had stamps and dies that would create a Polaroid photo. I started a new thing this year on the first Saturday of each month we would do a ‘Then and Now’ for coffee and cards.
