Greeting Cards

There are greeting cards for virtually every occasion, and also for occasions you wouldn't normally think of as card-worthy. I've seen "Congratulations On Your Vasectomy", and "Sorry You Got Gout", and even "I Never Liked You Anyways". At the site greetingcards.com you can get cards for such important events as Umbrella Day, Tax Day, and Kiss and Make-Up Day. Not wishing to offend anyone who celebrates Umbrella Day, but I wonder if companies like Hallmark have created "special" days just to sell cards!

This suggestion for writing is fairly straight forward. Create a greeting card of your own for any occasion. It could be funny, silly, absurd, sad, serious or dark -- anything you think deserves a card. You may like to find an image for the front or the inside, and even a watermark for the back if you're keen. Below you'll see one that I've come up with to celebrate (?) an absurd event (and I don't think I'd ever send this card to anyone).


(front)
HEARD YOU GOT FOOD POISONING



(inside)

HOPE YOUR RECOVERY RUNS SMOOTHLY

Halre,
Give it a shot! I'm sure that you'll come up with something totally irreverent!

Ron,
Thanks for stopping by. Not sure how you found your way in here... but maybe it's the backlinks from the other greeting card sites?
And if you like, sure why don't you share a card with us?
