Picture of RoboHeart Valentine's Day Card
Uh-ohhh, it's that time of the year again. Are we not men? No shirking on your duty to get your beloved a bouquet of roses or that special something that only comes in carats. If you do, I have just the thing...

I've never had luck with sending flowers to my honey at work. The first time when we were dating the flowers were never delivered due to a freak ice storm that shut down the city. I wanted to surprise her but they were delivered two days later. The florist did add in a few balloons though. Ever since, I have sent a "doghouse" card with the flowers to make up for it. It wasn't my fault...really. Besides, all of the other cards they have to send are too mushy mush for me even though I am a hopeless romantic. I love you, honey. This one is for you.

So, here it is, for those of you that have to take one for the team, a belated "doghouse" card for any occasion. For those who have never been to the doghouse or knows what it means to be threatened by it, just ask any harriedxx I mean married person.

This is a pop-up card inspired by the many other pop-up card instructables. I reverse engineered the pop-up fonts to make this one. The MS Word document is attached to start you off.

Sadie Hawkins Day follows soon enough so you guys or gals may be lucky or unlucky (KNEX shotgun style weddin', only on instructables.com)...

Forgot.... Good instructables, i was wondering do you make instructables alone or with help ;D?

I unfortunately have too much time on my hands so I do everything myself... It helps to have inspiration around you like kids. It also gives me a good reason to buy more tools so I can build stuff. But you can be really creative if you have nothing at all. Being frugal means if you have nothing to poke fun at yourself, then do it at the expense of others...

I thought she would appreciate the humour. I was wrong.

Thankfully, I had the real present ready.

I take it that you will hit the print key twice...so you and the missus can exchange cards? %-)
No need - she has a life and she has the ability to plan ahead more than a few hours.

Arrrgh, a real man who shows his true feelings...

Love is a perky elf dancing a merry little jig and then suddenly he turns on you with a miniature machine gun.

There's enough love to go around. Show us what you got. It's amazing what we'll do just for a bar of chocolate.
Yeah. And/ or for a Robot T-Shirt.
