Saint Valentine's Day (commonly shortened to Valentine's Day) is an annualholiday held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The holiday is named after one or more early Christian martyrs namedValentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in AD 496. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offeringconfectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The holiday first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Today is the first day of February which also means a celebration of a whole month of Love. Valentines Day is only a few weeks away and we know many of you will be making cards for those special people in your lives. This year will be particularly interesting for me because my Kindergartner has a very clear idea of the Valentine favors she would like to give her class and she would like to make them herself of course; to complicate matters her pre-schooler sister would like to have the same! Luckily our next sponsor has perfect images to get us started on any of our projects no matter what the occasion. Working with a ROUND Sketch, KLM Designs provided our Design Team with these adorable images to work with:
