Love is in the air

January is so cold, dark and grey that I really love getting all excited with warm cosy thoughts of romance when it comes to designing the new seasons Valentine's cards. Yes, I know, I'm a soppy old romantic, but hey!

I had good fun this year with something a little different for Valentine's designs, playing around with old antique images and cutesy love quotes!

I found some really quirky old etchings that were too good not to work with, including this old airship -

- and this lovel old image of a phrenology head - which really got me playing around with the idea of when you've just started a new romance and can't stop thinking about that gorgeous new someone ;)

It's great to find old antique images that inspire you, and I loved using them in this year's Valentine's cards. 

All the designs are now available for sale in our Etsy store, and we can personalise them too (earn you a few extra brownie points this Valentine's day maybe?) 
You can find them all at
