Collage Cards

Ordinary greeting cards from the supermarket are one of my pet peeves. I wander down that aisle now and then, hoping that somehow things will have changed… but, no. Same old beer and fart jokes… and groaners about the perils of getting old. I might look at a few, but soon I heave a heavy sigh and go home to rummage through my drawers of vintage papers and other ephemera and put something together myself.

The last half of March is birthday-heavy in my family. Here are a few I did recently for a triple-whammy party, the highlight of which was celebrating my dad's 85th!
"The Lovely Island"

"Frog Feet"
… for my Dad, who was a swim teacher/coach for years.
