Valentines Day doesn't exist in our household. There was a conversation very early on which went a little something like...
'Just so you know I've never bought a Valentines card and I don't intend to start now'
On a slightly more romantic note this is because we try to do nice things for each other spontaneously all year round rather than on a day when society (and greetings card companies) dictate that we ought to.
For those of you who do indulge in marking the 14th February with treats for loved ones I thought I'd share this great card collection (and for those who don't -there's always the other 364 days!).
They are designed by a friend/ex-colleague/all-round-good-egg Kate Blandford, and are available both printed and hand stitched. I love seeing modern/whimsical designs created using a very traditional craft, breathing a bit of new life into it. Head over to her blog to have a gander at some more of her work.
If you'd like to purchase one they're available from Kate's Etsy, but better be quick as there are only a few left!
