Father's Day 2018

Earlier in the week, I was at the drug store trying to find the perfect Father's Day card for Hubby Tony. It seems like every year they expand the definition of what a "father" is, but it still surprised me to find cards from the family pet.

Looking closer, I saw a nice selection of greetings 'from the dog', but the slot that held the one cat card was empty.  I thought that was a funny metaphor for a cat's behavior and decided to turn it into my own greeting. I took a photo of the display, then walked over to the photo department and uploaded my file into their system. It took me more time to scroll through their selection of borders and choose one then it did for the photo to print.

Five minutes and fifty three cents later I was on my way home.  I designed the front cover with enough room to glue the photo in the center, added an appropriate inside message, and printed both on card stock.  The last step was to use double-sided tape to stick the photo on.

  1. Sounds like you made the perfect card!

  2. Very inventive. That was a clever idea.

    God bless.

  3. I got a giggle out of pet cards! My family all has rescue dogs and cats, but we've never thought of sending a card from them. Father's Day is the perfect opportunity though, so many next year...
