Today is Valentine’s and long ago my husband and I declined to be drawn into the chocolate and reds of capitalism’s mid-term break between Christmas and Easter. However, early this morning I went to fetch a gift simply because it was something he needed and likes – and all before breakfast and the intake of painkillers necessary to make walking more bearable at the moment. That surely is love…
…and this is the card I made for him and us and for the belief that love is something that needs inking in every day to keep a lasting impression. Normally I lay out the stages of editing in a slide show but failed to record them here. Enough to say it was made with Smart Photo Editor having trawled the thousands of effects to find one to use with a textured background and watercolour effect:
Today’s the day we have to be romantic.
Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.
You know I’m yours and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.
