A Joke For the Valentine's Day

A guy walks into a post office one day to see a middle-aged, balding man standing at the counter methodically placing "Love" stamps on bright pink envelopes with hearts all over them.

He then takes out a perfume bottle and starts spraying scent all over them.

His curiosity getting the better of him, he goes up to the balding man and asks him what he is doing. The man says "I'm sending out 1,000 Valentine cards signed, 'Guess who?'"

"But why?" asks the man.

"I'm a divorce lawyer," the man replies.

New Valentine's Day eCards

Valentine's Day is just a short week away. I confess, making cards for this occasion can be challenging - capturing just the right sentiment, whether you plan to send a card to only one special person or all those near and dear to you, is a bit of a balancing act. But I hope that among our growing selection of cards you will find the right one.

Two new cards have been recently added. The first card, Sloppy Kiss, is inspired by early Valentine's cards that frequently featured flowers such as Lily of the Valley and pansies for symbolic reasons. The pups, Spriggs and Chica, take center stage in this production again after rave reviews for their performance in other cards.

Sometimes the simplest things in life really are the best ... especially if you share them with someone dear to you. The card "Life in Pink" includes a lovely tune called "Londonderry Air" which has been used with a variety of different song lyrics, such as Katherine Tynan Hinkson's "Irish Love Song".

Politically correct Valentine card

Created by Jon Gledstone, 26, of Hertford, Herts, here is a PC version of a Valentine card message that should not offend anyone, except those without a sense of humor:-)
"Please accept with no obligation my nonsexually harassing, potentially platonic Valentine’s regards as a token of my/our love, lust or friendship within a relationship that we may or may not choose to be monogamous, whilst understanding that the romantic sentiment that it signifies does in no way guarantee the success or progression of the said relationship over any length of time. The sender reserves the right to remain anonymous."

A Box To Hold Valentines

With the Valentine's Day coming up, Kathy Antoniotti from Beacon Journal wrote an article on how to create a container to hold valentines from your well-wishers in Sweetheart of a box for cards.

Creating a box to hold your valentines can be as easy or difficult as you choose. To make one like this, cover a cardboard box with scrapbook paper and decorate it with stickers. My decorations might not appeal to all children, but the instructions can be used with any design you prefer...
