Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that gets mixed reactions from people. Some are fans and some are not but either way it is supposed to be a holiday celebrating love and happiness. Today’s card is an Anniversary card that was created with our Painted With Love Designer Series Paper!
This is a really cool card because its a Bridge Fold Card that one of my customers asked me to teach.

- Trivia – Feb 4 – Has Valentine’s Day ever been a Religious Holiday? This is just like my question at Christmas about the Tree Topper… Your response will depend on who you are! Here is conflicted information on the same website! So I am giving a ticket to anyone who responded either way yesterday!
Originally a Christian holiday, Valentine’s Day is a celebration of romantic love occurring annually on February 14. Although its origin is associated by legend Saint Valentine in Roman Catholicism, the fact is Valentine’s Day is not a religious holiday and never really has been. Valentine’s Day has historical roots mainly in Greco-Roman pagan fertility festivals and the medieval notion that birds pair off to mate on February 14.
- Trivia – How much does the average person spend on Valentine’s Day? $75 $100 $150 $200

- Fun Fact – St. Valentine’s Day falls on February 14th of each year. Although the name is Saint Valentine’s Day, most people refer to the day as Valentine’s Day, or even the Feast of Saint Valentine. It was originally a day to celebrate Saint Valentinus, who performed weddings for soldiers who were not allowed to marry. He was imprisoned for this, as well as for ministering to Christians. Saint Valentinus wrote a letter to the daughter of his jailer before he was executed. His letter was signed ‘From your Valentine’. He was buried on February 14th. Valentine’s Day was not associated with romantic love until the middle ages. By the 1700s in England it began to resemble the Valentine’s Day we know today. At this time lovers began to express their love with gifts of flowers, candy and cards, which were called ‘valentines’.
