Your Preference?

20210806_144025

When it comes to greeting cards and notes,

what do you prefer?  Handwritten in cursive?

An eCard, a blank card or one with verses

inside?   Personalize or simply write your name?

For me, it depends upon the occasion and

the person or persons involved.  Some subjects

are sensitive in nature so I will compose a

poem for the intended person or select a

beautiful art card.  Some of my favorite places

to find greeting cards either blank inside or with

a simple verse are gift shops at museums around the

world.  Perhaps you have a favorite artist

or subject matter.  I always scour places for

cards with music motifs or one with foreign

languages such as a thank you card with

multiple languages included.  I seek out

greeting cards at drug stores too and

wind up in the humor section perusing

several as I laugh heartily.  My daily dose

of humor and amusement.  When I find

the perfect card, I am known to purchase

several of the same design and motif for

friends and family.  A poetic love message?

Or perhaps a sympathy or get-well card?

When my stockpile is low, I find the time

and place to replenish the stash.  Gift shops

await me!  Sometimes, with a friend along,

we will both stand and read cards and laugh.

I try to make a purchase of some cards so the shop

owner will be pleased I found just the right

one.  So, dear readers, what is your preference?

With or without verses? A special motif?

  1. I love sending and receiving cards of many kinds and have many on hand, both blank and with lovely messages/verses… eCards are ok, but can’t compare to the real deals to display, save, reread etc. ❤ Have a most lovely weekend, Mary Ann! xo

    • Bette, thank you for your lovely comment. We seem to be on the same page with keeping a variety on hand. I had not thought about the fact that the eCards are not ones you can save and reread and touch from time to time. I will use some as bookmarks when I am reading too. Thank you once again for the well wishes for the weekend. May yours be blessed and happy. oxox

  2. I am a card sender also. I prefer to buy blank ones and put the sentiment inside myself! Love the cards!

    • Cindy, thank you for such a lovely comment. Our daughter captured that gorgeous sky photo you liked. Astute of you to notice that I am thoughtful. I try. Sometimes with success and other times not so. Might I introduce you to my niece and husband who now live in Costa Rica. She does great photography and just snapped a few pictures about a lightning strike during a fierce storm. Enjoy the weekend. Sally Rose’s blog is https://www.puriscalproperty.com/

    This is a thoughtful post on choosing a card for someone with a lot of food for thought. I don’t have a preference for a certain kind of card. But like you, it depends on the occasion and who the person is. When I want to give someone a card, I like to think of how the card matches their personality. For instance if I knew the person liked cursive writing or was into fashion, I might be inclined to give a card in cursive handwriting.

    There are so many places to get cards, and so many different kinds of cards out there. I do prefer blank cards without a message in side as I find writing my own message gives the card a more personal, genuine touch.

    • Mabel, thank you for your thoughtful comment. I agree with most of your ideas too. Life gets in the way sometimes, so I will select a card with verses inside. I have friends in Germany so I will add a personal touch to one with verses and let them see if they can translate. Most times, it works out well. Be well and have a nice weekend. “”__””
