Happy May, everybody! One of my favorite months has finally arrived and I’m ready for the warmer weather. I just left the local mall and I’m happy to announce that mint green is officially “in”. I got me some cute capri pants and one of those big, floppy hats just for the heck of it. Exciting, right?
And that’s not the only exciting thing that happened over my lunch break… I heard that Jessica Simpson FINALLY had her baby! She was ten days overdue (and probably ready to get that kid out of her), when she finally went into labor and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl this morning. Is it me, or does it seem like everyone is getting pregnant and having babies lately? It must be something in the water…
Luckily, I’ll never have a shortage of eCards, since there’s an entire “New Baby” section on MyFunCards.
Is that not the most adorable photo ever? I just love the little ones. Anyway, be sure to visit MFC for all of the soon-to-be-parents or new parents in your life. And for those of your friends who just keep poppin’ out kids like they’re human gumball dispensers, you’ve got PLENTY of cards to choose from. Enjoy!
It’s a beautiful Tuesday afternoon. The sky is a bright blue spotted with fluffy white clouds. The sun is shining and full of warmth. I just looked at the thermometer and it’s a perfect 70 degrees out. The trees have fully sprouted their leaves, dotting the horizon with reds, pinks, oranges, whites and uncountable shades of green.
This is what spring is all about! Now let’s put the sprinkles on top of that cone, because I walked by a Häagen-Dazs® on my way to lunch and today is a free ice cream cone day!
It made me think, well, first it made me think of how I’m gonna walk back after lunch and take advantage of their cool hospitality. But then it made me think of our own sweet retro eCard above. Why not click on it and use it to see if your friends, family and especially your own sweeties want to join you for a treat.
P.S. We all scream…
Football fever is running high all over the USA today. Jerseys are being donned and copious amounts of beers and nachos are being consumed. Even if you’re not a football fan, there’s just no getting around the fact that today is Superbowl Sunday!
It’s no Christmas and it’s no Valentine’s Day, but that’s no reason not to take a moment to send a fun eCard to the sports fans in your life. After all, those who are really into the game are likely to be a little aggressive about their fan-dom. So, click the card above and send it along, claiming that you’re rooting for the opposite team.
For those of you who do enjoy seeing a smooth, long pass or an epic, dodgy run, enjoy the big event.
As for me, this year I can honestly wish the best of luck to fans of both the Steelers and the Packers. None of my faves made it this far (Colts, Giants) and none of my anti-faves made it this far (Cowboys, Patriots). Heck, I’m not even all that impressed with the Black-Eyed Peas as a halftime act. So, I’ve really got no one to root for or against, necessarily.
In short, may the best team win (as long as it’s yours).
Not too long ago, one of my designer friends on the MFC team suggested that we do a fun, cinematic black & white eCard for PB & Jay. I was extremely into the idea and immediately jumped to a Sam Spade type script.
Suffice it to say, I’m a sucker for a good mystery! I just spent several weeks reading the entire Sherlock Holmes collection. I adore Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe series, and was a big fan of the short-lived TV show, too. And, of course, who can deny the genius of the queen of mystery, Agatha Christie? Every time I stumble upon Hercule Poirot on the tube, I’m trapped until the big reveal. More >
After all, Back to School isn’t just about a kids heading back onto the bus or decorating their college dorms. It isn’t even reserved necessarily for classroom activities. Like Obama said, “”Nobody gets to write your destiny but you.”
So, whether you’re suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome or just have some spare time you don’t know what to do with, Back to School can be for you, too.
It’s so natural, once we’ve made the grade and gotten our diplomas, to settle into what we know and go no further. I mean, yes, life is an endless series of lessons, but sometimes we need to take the time to think about those lost moments in which we’ve thought, “I’d love to learn how to [fill in the blank].” More >
