For Valentine's Day...and Mother's Day: Mom Heart Tattoo Applique

 I must admit, Valentine's day is a hard holiday for outfitting boys.  You don't want to dress them in ruffles, lace, and huge amounts of pink. However, I think that I came up with a fun and appropriate approach to the holiday.

How about a Mom Heart Tattoo Applique.  Because these two little guys are so rough and tough....alright, not so much, but they sure are lovable. When Clark and I started our photo shoot I asked him to act tough, all I got were smiles and kisses (maybe he was remembering our Christmas shirt shoot).  

Right now I'm really enjoying the fact that I am the girl that is in the center of their lives, I dread the day that Clark runs off chasing girls, and forgets all about his dear old mom. I'm marking my territory.  I'm reminding them now, while their young, that mine is a heart that they don't want to break.

If you are interested in this particular applique template and tutorial, I have a pdf file available for purchase.  The file includes three different sized templates.   I've also written up a photo tutorial to explain the process that I used to create my appliques.  The pdf template will be emailed to the buyer, and you can be printed at home. 

Check out the guns! 
While I'd love to share all of my projects with you for free, I feel like I need to make my time more profitable.  We're hoping to get my husband  into grad school later this year, and we're trying to save our pretty little pennies.  Don't worry though,  I have several more projects and tutorials that I'm working on.  Hopefully I'll have them to you early next week.

 A whole lotta love here.
 Thanks so much for reading!

That is the cutest thing I've ever seen. I'm not a big V-day person, but I would definitely do this. Love it!
