GreenApplePaperie‘s Cool Penguin card ($3.50) is so retro in its message (“You’re cool”) — yet oh, so modern in its simplicity — that we wish we could send Valentines year round. Then again, once you buy and download the design file, you can print as many as you’d like. Hmm…..

The whole point of a valentine’s card is that you send one to your sweetheart – not to other people. They’re supposed to be anonymous too (even though most people of course know who’s sent them!) They certainly aren’t supposed to be from a whole family like Christmas or birthday cards! Either that or our traditions are very different here in the UK!

emma, I’m American and I’ve never heard of sending pictures out for valentines day, but I guess some people would use any excuse to send out more pictures of their children.

It’s all about money. These card companies know they can make more moeny if they change the meaning of valentine’s Day. So they start to change it and it 10 years no one will know any better….

Valentine’s Day is for anonymous sweethearts, not for family cards.
