Valentine's Day cards, how much do I love thee?

Enough to send, like, fifty of them to some other people's grandmothers!

I designed the silliest set of Valentine's Day cards that I could muster.
They mostly revolve around puns about fruits and vegetables.

And I put them up in my shop, as an instant download.  Or a printable file. Whatever you want to call it.

Now, I printed out quite a few of them, while I was fixing the colors in each design, and as they started to pile up, I was wondering how in the world I was going to give that many valentine cards away.

But I didn't have to worry.  I can send them off to Etsy headquarters, who brings them to Meals on Wheels, who will deliver them to senior citizens.
You can participate, too!
There are a few guidelines, for instance, you have to write out "Valentine's Day" and not abbreviate it as V-Day.  {That has a completely different meaning to that generation.}

Also keep it happy and bright, but no glitter!  Apparently no one wants to accidentally eat any glitter.

Oh yeah, and the deadline is February 3rd.  It's a little bit sooner than you might think!

The address and the rest of the guidelines you need can be found at the Etsy blog.

But here's the address again, in case you can't click through!
Attn: Adriane Tidona
55 Washington St.
Suite 512
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Are you going to send any? Mine will be in the mail on Monday!  :)
