Hallmark, get a dog up ya

If you're a reader of my blog you'll know I make cards, lots of them. I buy cards from the op-shop (most never written in!) and make them new again using vintage books. Some 'message' cards are just so naff, 'Like a mother to me' was a stand out. The gag inducing message inside made me wonder 'who buys these cards and why?' I'm hoping people start to rebel against the gift card moguls and say what they really think or something really random like ...

A better way to say 'Missing you' ...
'The empty sensation intensified' with a spaced out kitty on the front.

How to say 'I'm thinking about killing you with a carrot' ...
'There was only one way to find out'


How to say 'Happy anniversary I got you this card' ...
'Everyone knows I'm such a boring bastard'
A better way to say 'Get well soon' ...
'No problem, we'll go shopping'


You too can take action against inane card messaging and say it with humour, originally and a lot of randomness. Find these cards and more at my next market ... The Finders Keepers on November 6-7.
