That is the message my Grandma (Nan's Mum) wrote to me in my 21st birthday card...the last card birthday card she ever wrote for me...can you honestly tell me that that can be replaced with a text/facebook message?? See...that's where a hand written greeting card beats everything else...it hasn't got to be the longest message, it hasn't got to be the best written message (Grandma's writing was always curly!!) but if it's handwritten then it's yours to keep forever...in fact it's yours to pass on to future generations that ask about your past...when an email/text message has been lost because you've changed your phone or email address...when facebook no longer exists (technology always evolves) the hand written greetings win everytime!!
Now, talking of things lost that can't be replaced...some time back we were asked to make some extremely personal and very special Christmas cards. I'm not going to say much as I think you'll find the cards speak volumes...but I will tell you that I cried like a big girl whilst looking for ideas on what to do...then cried again once they were made...so basically I'm a wimp!!
They were certainly some of the toughest cards I've had to make.
