    I love PDD — I’ve bought every bridal shower and baby shower card from them for parties I’ve hosted or chaired with others and have NEVER been disappointed! The valentine’s day cards are no less wonderful. I especially love the mini petitie cards for kids. I like them a whole lot better than the folding superhero or Hannah Montana alternatives at the grocery store. =)

  32. Jennifer says:

    I’ve always loved this site! I wish my sister was having her baby girl around Valentine’s Day because these are beautiful and just perfect!!!

    Then again, I’ll probably still get them!

  33. Tiffany says:

  34. Amanda says:

    I might just have to send this link to the host! :) It’s hard not to get involved in the planning. he he

  35. Christy says:

    I loved all of the Whoo Loves Me cards and the Paisley Love cards!!!

  36. melissa irvin says:

    I am in LOVE with the Fluffed and Fab invitation! When I paint for my nieces, I always have a signature bird in the corner with plumage similar to this invite.

    My most immediate need is birthday party invitations for my niece’s 7th birthday. She wants a luau theme so there are several from the Tropical and Pool Party collection that would be excellent choices!

  37. Jessica says:

    It’s so hard to choose one…so I won’t! Some of my favorites are the bee mine valentine photo card, anything with sweets on them (ice cream, cupcakes, etc), and the cute pink whale card!

  38. Kristin says:

    I absolutely love the Wild About You Mini Petite Cards – so perfect for Valentine’s Day!
