  3. kati says:

    love the smudge ink card. they are a wonderful, wonderful group of people to work with and their stuff is really lovely.

  4. Jess says:

    Such nice stuff, but all so sweet and sincere. There should be an anti-valentines round up of the best fun designs in sarcasm and bitterness for the rest of us!

  5. Sarah says:

    This is a beautiful collection of cards! I am so flattered to have my card & gift tags in such amazing company. Thank you Grace & Jan.

  6. Cute cards! The be mine deer is my favorite!

  7. Leah says:

    I totally just went to etsy and bought a valentines day card for husband I was so inspired – and heck, I got some personalized stationery while I was there too. Man oh man is etsy a dangerous place for me!

  8. Sasha says:

    I’m a sucker for owls. My grandmother had an owl collection that she passed on to me and ever since I’m always on the lookout. It’s been great that owls are so popular lately. Love it!

  9. Babs says:

    Woot actually came out with some pretty funny Anti-Valentines cards today. There’s cute, sweet Valentines too. Take your pick!

  10. grace, love your round-up!Read the comments too and noticed Jess’s request for anti-valentines. I made a slew of free valentine’s and anti valentines that are available on maquette-through……

  11. ooooooh, i love the “be mine” heart shape. the graphic on that is just lovely. a lovely executed classic take on the valentine. three cheers for smudge ink!

  12. Natasha says:

    It’s actually “Rock Scissor Paper.” Easy to transpose the words.

  13. kenisha says:
