Cheese is Always a Good Idea

Cheese is always a good idea.  It’s also great when you want to give someone a stupid cheesey card.  Dang it!  Now I’m hungry!!  Next post?  Probably a recipe involving CHEESE.

More hand-lettering!  I know, I know, you’re saying “geeeez, obsessed much?”.  Why yes, yes I am.  You’ll see as I continue to post things that such obsessions will come in waves.  Right now, it is hand-lettering-turned-graphic-art using the magic computer-box.  This one I was going to use for that wedding card I  mentioned but it seemed to vague.  Fortunately, it can be used for all manner of occasions.  Need a random card for someone on “their day”?  Use this one. +15 versatility

Also in the doomshop!

In true obsessive form, I went a little overboard with the hand-lettering thing and flipped through my sketchbook for more inspiration for greeting cards.  I recently attended a cousin’s wedding and, without having purchased a card (because they were all horrible), I decided a pretty, fliffy-looking hand-lettered card would be better.  Being very unorganized that day (after a full day of travelling), I neglected to tape the card to the box.  Hopefully it will stay on under the ribbon via the magic of static electriciy.  At first I was at a loss because I could NOT think of a single thing that wasn’t “Happy Wedding!” or something just as profound.  I didn’t really come up with anything particularly profound; it actually was inspired by a quote from J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan.  “To die would be an awfully big adventure”.  Of course, dying is not really appropriate for a wedding card, so I came up with this:
