Card Graffiti? Or Art? Doesn’t Matter as Long as She Smiles.

I wanted to send an Easter card to our little granddaughter (she is just a little short of 2 years old).

Though I love to send cards, the buying of them makes me impatient. I find that most cards don’t really fit whatever situation or relationship I have with the person to receive it – too sentimental, too brash, express feelings I don’t really have, etc. (Why can’t a card just say “Happy – fill in the blank – day”?)

So, I tend to grab the first thing that seems appropriate and rush out of the store. That’s what I did with this card for my granddaughter.

Cute little chick, right? I thought so, too. She likes birds and animals so I thought it would appeal to her. The inside sentiment was fine, too, though I had to amend it to make it from both me and her grandfather. But the overall effect was just flat, I thought.

Well, I got to work. I thought that if one chicken was good, lots and lots would be even better.

Now I am satisfied. I hope these chickens squawk out their message loud and proud!

      Yes, she has since received the card and she liked it (so her parents say!). I enjoyed doing it. I think a lot of chickens make for a sociable situation all right.

    I like your embellishments. I do the same thing to cards because I find sentimental cards or ones containing mawkish rhymes to not fit my personality or style. Therefore, if I spot a card where the image is perfect for the recipient, I will play around with the interior. I actually most often buy blank cards so that I don’t even have to deal with the sentiment.

      Yes, me too, but this one had that chick which is what sold me and luckily a not too sappy interior, but it still didn’t suit me. Cards need to go all out for the recipient, I think!

      She has received it (I sent it early since I thought Easter was last week, oops) and the whole family seemed to like it, so I felt happy and I also enjoyed drawing all those chickens!
