(of course, the actual card doesn't have the © info plastered across the front). Why am I posting a favorite card? Why did I choose THIS card? And who is Great Scott Designs (the card creator)? Read on and the mysteries will be solved (where that missing sock went to after you put it in the dryer? I don't have any answers for THAT mystery, sorry!) ...
Why am I posting a favorite card?
The peeps behind the scenes at Greeting Card Universe, the place where I host my greeting card designs, are holding a contest for the designers. We've been challenged to pick ONE favorite card that isn't one of our own. There will be a followup post on this card and this contest next week (and it will get even more fun at that time).
Why did I choose THIS card?
Like I said, my moods and the occasion all have something to do with what card is a favorite at any given time. But for THIS occasion at THIS time I chose THIS card. I like to think of myself as an upbeat, optimistic person in general. Life's Challenges hit all of us at one time or another and for me, a little humor is sometimes all I need to get perspective on the situation, so that's usually what I reach for when offering support to a friend in need. Great Scott Designs has no shortage of humorous cards and this one is a reflection of that fact. Of course an animal theme will catch my eye every time!
And who is Great Scott Designs (the card creator)?
I first "met" Colleen quite a few years ago when I was active on just one POD site. And when I stumbled upon her at GCU, it was a neat feeling almost like finding an old friend again. Here is an except from her "about me" (you can read more on the home page of her own greeting card store - Great Scott Designs at GCU):
" ... I'm really no "artist" but my goal is generally to make you (and me) smile in a real life sort of way ... The background story...single Mom set out to make one single band t-shirt for her son and kept going from there. Quite simply, I had to make a living in this everchanging world and it's been a blast!"
Click on thru to see Colleen's card for yourself. Did you know that GCU makes it super-duper-easy for you to change the inside text of any card during your order process? Go ahead, give it a try! You can even add your own text to blank cards if you'd like. Love it. And ... check back next week to see what the next phase of this little contest has in store for us all ...
You didn't REALLY think I'd let you go without showing you a few more of my favorites, did you?!
