greeting cards for the digital age

welcome_baby_blogBirthdays and weddings. Condolences. Friendship. Any gift shop or supermarket can offer up plenty of cards for plenty of occasions. But in this digital age, the world is serving up more and more occasions for which the greeting card market has yet to be tapped.

  1. Ah. the Twitter valentine. It is a much needed commodity isn’t it? Hey wait! I don’t think you’re on Twitter. Maybe a party invitation is in order.

  2. That’s some toothsome baby.
    As usual, you’ve got me coughing and choking on my coffee. I should know better by now than to pull up any post of yours while drinking anything.

    Thanks, and thanks for the visit! I’d love to see my greeting cards come to life, but I doubt it will happen.

    Droll. There’s a word I don’t come across too often, but thanks!

    Thanks for the prompt! (I had to refrain from trying to make images for more of them.)

    I have a fear of Twitter. I’m afraid I may get sucked into it, since so many of you are out there playing together on it. But I spend too much time online as it is. (And if you come visit, I promise I will provide a baby tummy to nuzzle. Also shelter and food.)

    Mary G-
    Toothsome! There’s another infrequent word. How lovely. Theo is also beautifully toothless, as you can see from the top photo. (And the bit about choking on your coffee is a wonderful compliment! Thank you!)

    I seriously may develop more of them, at least into e-cards.

    I’m glad you enjoyed! As for the onesie, it is sadly temporary. I borrowed one of Phoebe’s washable markers and drew on the “chicklet.” It has already been besmirched by drool, and has run. If Crayola’s promise holds true, the design will disappear in the laundry. (Happily, the same can’t be said for the kid.)
