Say 'I Love You' with Bay Area-Themed Valentines

Here are some Bay Area-themed Valentines to make that special someone's heart flutter.

Share, copy or print to your heart's content.  Now you can't say that the only thing you ever got from KQED was a  tote bag! And if you think you can one-up us with more clever Valentines, leave your ideas at the bottom of the page. We might add to the collection, or keep them in mind for next year. (And keep it SFW, please. Best to leave off references to Twin Peaks and the Tenderloin.)

Valentines designed by Olivia Hubert-Allen. Copy by Dan Brekke, David Marks, Olivia Hubert-Allen, Kelly Dunleavy O'Mara and Gabriel Coan.

An astute commenter pointed out that this is actually a sea lion. Oops! But "You get my sea lion of approval" just doesn't have the same ring.
