52 reasons i love you

i saw this little project floating around  before February's day of love
and thought it was one of the cutest things i've ever seen
i had to make it. just had too and before my stone left for baseball. 

and ooh boy i am so happy i did. 
even if it wasn't ready quite in time for vday, it was ready for his last night.
 it was simple. and easy and just the perfect way to say, hey i love you!

so of course, i first  started to write down the 52 reasons
and got to about 30. and then thought, well how am i suppose to get to 52?!

so i put it aside. and when i pulled it out later, a bunch more came to mind.
of course, how could i forget that! oh i love when he does that!
that kind of stuff.
and before i knew it, i had a few more than i needed
 i think its a really great way to show your appreciation and love for someone!  


 you will need:

 * deck of cards      
* avery address labels, i used avery 5160
* hole puncher                                                
* binder rings {i bought mine from hobby lobby}




happy crafting!
