Valentine Bellas


Not that you need to know this to like or dislike this card, and maybe I shouldn't tell the story behind the card... but I am going to tell you anyway!
My mom and her life partner live in Oregon where it is not legal for same-sex couples to get married. Since their love is NOT recognized by so many people... (love should be universal not designated by the church or state!) ...anyway.... (it's one of my topics so I will refrain from sharing too much here!!)
So anyway... I send them a card every Valentines kind of a way to say "I recognize the love you have had for all these years." So that is why I have two women on the front of the card. On the inside I put "to a relationship that deserves to be recognized!!!"
Did you see I put a skirt on Cosmobella to dress her up? I love it! I covered Winabella with red stickles... and the glasses are covered in chrystal effects. each girl has a pretty stickles barret or head band.
So anyway... I just wanted to share this card with you all... Thanks for reading... I appologize for going off on my tangent. I just STRONGLY believe in HUMAN rights ... whether it be sexuality, or color of skin or what ever the difference is that makes some different than the "common" person... I just want to see the world be EQUAL to all humans!!!
Okay that is all... hope you like the card!

I love this card and all that it stands for. You did a nice job on it. I love the skirt! And I feel the same as you do, civil rights are not special rights! Who cares who you love, not many people find that one true love so if you have, no matter who it is, hold on to that!!!

Love the card and the sentiment inside it!!! You are a very thoughtful daughter. I fully agree with you on everything you wrote...I could have written it myself!
Nice job!
The skirt looks awesome btw you would never have known that she started with pants!

OOPS, I posted my comment for this card under your nephew's birthday card...probably made no sense.

Anyway, look there ;)

I love this card. I like how you put a skirt on cosmobella. I too like to stand up for all rights of gay/lesbians. I have many people in my life who are gay. I just love them.

This is a beautiful card and sentiment. Your mom is lucky to have such a wonderful daughter. If you ever want to visit beautiful British Columbia, Canada, we recognize and celebrate marriage between all kinds of couples.

I LUV LUV LUV IT! I really like what you've done with the skirt and....well....just everything! My uncle and his life partner live in Vancouver, BC and are fortunate that they were able to get married here. I must tell you - my uncle hit the jackpot!! His partner is an international lawyer from Brazil and absolutely gorgeous!!! :) I'm so happy for them!

Great card and I love everything it stands for!! I am a true believer in human rights and just wrote a huge research paper (for college - a conservative college at that! LOL)about pro gay rights! I got an A+ and truly believe in every word I wrote!! You are a wonderful and supportive daughter!
