Stampin' Valentine to you!

 Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope you receive a note in the post, a card from your loved one or a bouquet or at the very least a little kiss from someone you love. 
Here is the card I made for my husband.  I wanted it to be full of love, but also masculine and seeing as he made the right kind of noises I guess it hit the mark!
Do you know anything of the history of Valentine's Day, for example do you know that it was first established by Pope Gelasius 1 in 496 AD in honour of one or more martyrs named Valentinus.  It was removed from the General Roman Calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul V1.  Numerous countries celebrate this day although everyone still goes to work on this special day.  If you want to know more look here in Wikipedia.  In the meantime have yourself a special day and enjoy the love that comes your way.


Happy Stampin'
Zx
