Faery Ink - "Sweethearts"

It's coming up to that time of year again, when the price of flowers increases by 50% and you can't have a meal out unless you've booked a table!  Sorry to be so cynical but the hubby and I don't really do Valentine's Day especially since we got married, we both think it's commercialised hype and would rather give spontaneous gifts and show our affection throughout the year.  However I was rather taken by this little digi image from Faery Ink and I thought it's appropriate to the time of year but instead of red or pink, which is the tradition, I went for purple because that's my favourite colour.
There are all sorts of facts and myths regarding the origins of Valentine's Day but I'll leave you to Google them and get on with sharing my card!
