Greeting cards are the outlet to my random bouts of creativity, especially around the Christmas season. To make a greeting card oneself is to express emotion towards someone you love in a simple image and few words. It is usually much appreciated in this day of Hallmark and e-cards. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen and some markers or watercolors! And an idea of course.
Sometimes when I don’t have a good idea, I simply draw the first thing that comes to mind.
And then you go from there. I have yet to color it in and write the thank-you note, which might go something like this:
“There once was a llama named Hank
who didn’t know who to thank.
He turned around and around,
till he finally found,
you were staring him in the face point-blank.
Thank you Aunt ____ for your awesome gift of _____!!! I’ve already worn it/used it/eaten many times!!!
