The last time I bought a card, I thought to myself: how much more would I prefer a card made by the Girl, as opposed to Hallmark, or whomever? Then, I thought: I’m sure anyone would prefer a card showing a portrait of themselves, with a portrait of the Girl along side, with a couple of faeries hovering about for good measure. Wouldn’t you?
Faeries add that little extra something. Even I think so. It’s from my days of reading Enid Blyton faerie stories, and now the Girl comes to them through Disney. Well, it’s the destination that counts, not the route. Am I right?
Here she is making her Mum a card, while spending time at MY mum’s – her Nana – this weekend. I think The Girl has come around to the idea that Nanas are mum’s too. And she got a nice Mother’s Day lunch out of it.
I expect faeries on my card, too. Which is way awesome.
