Greeting Cards Obsessions!

I have to admit I do have a bit of an obsession with greeting cards. Theres nothing better than knowing its someones birthday coming up and spending hours in Clintons choosing the perfect card! Thats just the right fit for the person in mind. Funny ones, girly ones and ones with singing hamsters (yes they really do exist haha!) I always think that cards are such a lovely thing to keep too, there not too big that they end up taking over your bedroom and there always nice to look back at.

I’ve been keeping all my cards since I was 15, I’m now 22 so theres quite a pile. I wish I’d started earlier though and kept every single one that I had ever received. Now that would be an achievement! I keep all my greeting cards in little floral boxes so there neatly stored away and it also keeps them all together, like a keep-sake box. I have christmas cards, birthday cards, thank you cards and good luck ones from when I went to Uni. Looking through them is almost like looking through all the important little memories from your whole life. (below is a pic of a few of my card collections, trust me there where many many more!)    So anyway, I really like cards! and if you give me a card I promise I will most definitely keep hold of it for a very long time. But the reason I was inspired to write this post is I’m currently working on using my own illustrations to create some greeting cards, which is super exciting, especially for a greeting cards obsessor like myself. I’m using the pattern designs mentioned in one of my earlier blog post.

Let me know which ones are your favourite, also if your a fellow card obsessor like myself please post a pic of your card collections! So I don’t feel as weird haha. Once I have all the cards made and ready I will post some pictures for my next blog post.

Thanks for reading!
