Featured Cards - The Football Fan!

With the football season now in full swing, did you know that we have a range of cards featuring cartoon images of football fans? There are currently 29 teams to choose from including the most popular clubs in England and Scotland - teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, Man U & Man City, West Ham, Celtic, Hearts and Rangers, to name but a few.

If football's not your thing, then do take a look at our Sporting Humour range of cards. These are perfect for budding athletes and sports stars and feature rugby, tennis, darts, skiing, golf, bowls and much more...

Both these ranges poke fun at the sports and past times that so many of us enjoy and are great for birthdays, and even other occasions, so why not check them out and see what you think?

Birthday Cake Disasters

Following on from my previous post on Great Birthday Cakes, for every wonderful cake there is, of course, a Birthday Cake disaster! The best one I heard was when someone went to a cake shop to order a Birthday cake with a photo on top. They handed a USB drive to the woman behind the counter which had the photo saved on it. Unfortunately the woman behind the counter did not understand, and rather than recreate the digital image on the USB drive actually put an image of the USB drive on the cake! You can see the cake below.
Now, obviously the cake is very professionally done, and looks lovely, but it's not quite what the customer was after! I think in this instance you just have to hope that the present you bought is a good one and, of course, choose a great Birthday Card!

Great Birthday Cakes

I'm sure you've seen the advert for a well known Search Engine where the guy tries to make a Ladybird Birthday Cake such as the one pictured? His efforts do not come out quite as he'd hoped but people do make the most amazing birthday cakes. I did a quick search (using the same Search Engine used in the advert) and found some great cakes. These are a few of my favourites:-
3. Guitar Birthday Cake. I try to play the guitar myself so I love this one and it looks so realistic, although it might get a bit messy if you did try to play it?!?
2. Angry Birds Birthday Cake. Based on the birds from the hugely popular computer game. This cake looks so good I'm not sure I could bring myself to actually cut it or eat it!
1. BBQ Birthday Cake. Perfect for this time of year! I love a good BBQ and I love a good cake so the combination of the two has got to be a good idea, hasn't it?
So, they are my favourite cakes. I'm sure everyone has their own favourite ones so let me know yours.

Featured Cards - Bookmark Greetings Cards

Bookmark Greetings Cards are a great idea from Blossoms & Bows. The cards are blank inside so can be used for any occasion and incorporate a beautiful image on the front of the card and the associated matching bookmark.

Even though reading devices like Kindle are becoming more popular there's nothing like the feel of a real book, and there's nothing like the feeling of receiving a real card rather than an e-card. That's what makes these cards so perfect, so why not check out our Bookmark Cards in our Blank Greetings Cards section.

Why Wait For A Special Occassion?

All too often we loose touch with friends or family because people move away. We might send the odd card once or twice a year at Christmas or Birthdays and, yes, we might chat on Facebook, but nothing beats a physical letter as a surprise!

A personalised card is a great way to keep in touch and remind that special someone that you're thinking about them. Easily add a photo or image that will remind them of good times that you've shared and will put a smile on their face.
