Valentines Day is coming up! I am someone who thinks we should tell our loved ones they're appreciated and loved all the time, but I don't oppose a day dedicated to it. I have illustrated a design that is available here as a free download for you to print your own valentines day card for someone you love.  

The artwork has been hand painted with hand cut collage elements and is an original design by me.

All you need to do to print your own card is download the file, print the artwork making sure it's at 100%, print then trim the paper to card size (14.8W x 10.5H) then fold in half and write your message on the inside.  

If you don't want to print your own I have a few cards that work well for Valentines Day on my online store here.

Happy Valentines Day!



Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, advice and solidarity.
