Let’s be honest, I’m a bit shit when it comes to birthday cards

This is something my wife soon came to learn, and then mimic, very early in our relationship.

It used to be the case that I’d buy cards and then forget where I put them.

Now I just refuse the whole buy it, loose it, find it at Easter charade, and, instead mumble something about the commercial exploitation of Christmas (weddings, birthdays, bar mitzvahs and any other opportunity which lends its self to card buying), before saying fuck it and not bothering in the first place.

Anyway, for my daughter’s 21st Birthday I thought I’d do something a bit different, so, working with my long term friend and collaborator known only as “Agent K” (or, at 2 am in the morning with a spray can in one hand and a can of special brew in th’other, “Special Agent K”), we came up with the following 12ft by 6ft greeting card design.

Looking at it a few days later, I reckon the paste I’ve used should last till Christmas when it can be easily modfied with a few christmassy colours and other seasonal nonsense.

  1. That’s fantastic. I bet your daughter loved that and means so much more than those over-priced cards that just get chucked away! 🙂
