Heart Bookmark

February is one of my very favorite months. The winter weather is just about over but there is still hope of a few more crisp and beautifully white days. While Valentines Day is perfectly situated mid month when winters chill begins to give way to the promise of spring.

Here is a bookmark to commemorate the promise that Spring brings and the promise the heart carries of eternal love. Enjoy
