Sweet, funny, charming, touching. These Valentines, all printed on Neenah Paper, should bring a smile to the face of someone you love this Valentine’s Day. And who has NOT sung this famous cover song? For my money, Chet Baker’s is the truest, bluest version of this Rogers and Hart classic.

My Funny Valentine

by Rogers & Hart

My Funny Valentine
Sweet Comic Valentine
You Make Me Smile With My Heart
You’re Looks Are Laughable,
Yet You’re My Favorite Work Of Art
Is Your FigureLess Than Greek
Is Your Mouth A Little Weak
When You Open It To Speak
Are You Smart
Don’t Change A Hair For Me
Not If You Care For Me
Stay Little Valentine Stay
Each Day Is Valentine’s Day

You’ve Got Mail. Memphian Kayla Earwood sent us these  beautiful silk screen Valentines; Sundance® Papers

The idea came about as a brainstorming game between two dating graphic designers. The game would start by saying “I love you more than…” then each would finish the sentence with the most offbeat, witty substitution they could think of.  One day while searching for the perfect present and realizing a greeting card just wasn’t it,  they saw a market for their simple game. Taking the best of their brainstorming ideas, Brian and Kayla (now married)  created a line of ten cards all about love but without the frills, rhymes and poetic verses that accompanied most cards. “We know our cards aren’t for everyone. A lot of people love the romantic poems and bible verses on cards, but we wanted to make a line of cards for people like us who want something different, ” says Kayla.

    If I had a valentine, my preference would be to share Brian and Kayla’s messages of love. Humor and sweetness together.
