Bonus points if you edit the image to include your caption, and even more bonus points if you blog about your entry and this contest (be sure to link to those in your comment).

The best entries will be featured in a post on Valentine’s Day, when the original caption of this vintage Valentine will also be revealed.

Who can enter? Anyone who leaves a comment by February 12 14 that isn’t spam. You must live in the United States to win the prize.

What’s the prize? The original valentine! Yes, we will send you, via snail mail, this vintage beauty from Dame Toadstool’s personal collection. It came from an antique store in Salt Lake City. This prize value is an astounding $5, but regretfully the winner does not have the option to take a cash equivalent.

How will you choose a winner? The small circle of “fine” ladies behind Happy Valley Crafters will judge the contest entries based on their creativity and humor. The winner will be chosen subjectively.

How do I pander to the judges? Make it snarky, sassy, and rife with innuendo.

That’s it! Good luck to you and your creative captioning.


About Dame Toadstool

From her humble Midwestern beginnings, Dame Toadstool has developed into a lady of fine taste (as long as you are flexible with the definition of "fine"). She enjoys sarcasm, knitting, subversive cross-stitching, and will never stop using the Oxford comma.

  1. I never knew that Liza Minnelli was a runaway! What’s in her bindle? Hair gel and stage cosmetics?

    Cute card! I don’t have a blog, so I’m hoping my cleverness will suffice:

    “Who’s got one thumb and a valentine package with your name on it? This guy!”

  3. Jodie says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day, I’m outta here.

    See ya, it’s over.

    I hope I can make it to the border before you find this card.

    (This just really seems like it needs to be a break-up card.) Just sayin.

    To celebrate the 7th state where gay marriage is now legal: “Smell you later, Utah! I’m heading to Washington!”
