My Funny Valentine

Ok. I swear this is my last Valentine's Day post. (And, yes, for the last time, YES, July through December are coming on the calendars! End of February, I promise.)

I'm really not such a big Valentine's Day person. I tend toward the sardonic more than the saccharine in my personal life. So in the spirit of keepin' it real on this here blog, I'm offering up three printable cards that are in line with my personal romance philosophy. These are definitely tuned to my sense of humor—your mileage may vary.

I don't know about you, but I sometimes I think a little menace adds necessary spice to boring old love. To wit: feeling preppy & vaguely stalker-y? Go with alligators.

Download the printable card and envelope template here.

Or...staying with the pink theme, but embracing your inner feminist, wield your Lady Bic with love:

Or...when you just can't say it with flowers, perhaps, say it with a skunk?

Here's hoping that however you choose to express it, you enjoy the company of those you love on Valentine's Day and every day.

I love your free printables. I think I have them all!!! I use the calenders at work and I look forward to the rest of the year coming out soon.
I put you up on my blog tonight. I couldn't keep you to myself anymore and so I shared you with my friends and family... now they all know my secret to cute and fun cards and stationery.

Wow, what a goldmine of good stuff! I just happened upon your blog through another link and I love it. I had three loads of laundry to fold tonight and I happily ditched it all so I could peruse your fabulous ideas. Your design eye is fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing your huge talents with the rest of us. I can't wait to pass your site on to my blog readers. Have a great night.
