As well as the Couple Portrait Valentine Cards I wrote about last week, I’ve also added some other new Valentine’s Day cards to my Etsy shop – some ready to ship and one which can be personalised with your own photo. I’ve tried to create a range that appeals to different tastes, whether you prefer … [Read more…]
