Love is in the Air...

..."Everywhere I look around"...

Well so THAT song tells us...



No matter if you are partnered or not on Valentines Day, the idea of Valentine's Day is a lovely one. But why do we need an excuse to be romantic? Shouldnt love or romance happen on any day of the year?

Well if you are in possession of some of our many stamps that celebrate love and affection, then Valentine's Day at the very least is an excuse to use them! And I just happen to own "A Happy Heart" which includes a stamp that says {Feb 14} - if I cant use it now, then when AM I going to use it??? And if you don't have a significant other in your life Valentines is a day to think about all the people in our lives that do indeed have significance to us - whether they be treasured friends or family.

The card you see here includes the floral heart from the I {heart} Hearts stamp set (rrp $42.95). Right now if you purchase this stamp set, Stampin'Up will donate $2 from every set sold to the Red Cross' Haiti Relief and Development Fund. This money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need. Click here to see the stamp set itself and further details.

If you had this stamp set on your wish list you will need to make your purchase before February 28th to contribute to the fund. I am proud to work for a company that becomes involved in assisting people in need in this way.

So whilst I do have feeling that Valentine's Day is sometimes an excuse to commercialize love, I still love the basic concept, and I hope that you spend it with people that you love or at least take the opportunity to tell someone how much they mean to you.

LOVE

Me.

Oh, and I hope you enjoy this little card. :-)
