To show you have much we love you we’ve teamed up with Lori Joy Smith, an artist, illustrator and mama from Charlottetown to make your valentine’s day a little lovelier.

While Valentine’s is plenty romantic, it’s also that slightly panicky day when you need to come up with cards for all the kids in your child’s preschool, daycare or kindergarten – plus all the other folks they love. The crafty among us are probably already mod-podging the finishing touches on a solution, but if your current plan involves a last-minute date at the drug store with Diego and Dora cards…no te preocupes, we’ve got you covered. ¡Vamos, amigos!

Just for you, we asked Lori Joy Smith to create 9 new and original valentines that are free to download and use. We love the retro feel of her smarty-pants kids and bashful animals, and the messages are sweet without being mushy, so even the squirmiest kid can get behind them.

To start spreading the love, click here to download the free pdf. Print the doc, cut it out, and let your little one decorate at will. And have a happy (and relaxed) Valentine’s!

Yo mamas and papas, if you’d like to see more of Lori Joy’s artwork, head to And if your kid’s got the yen to make something special for their nearest and dearest, try these out:
