Greetings 70's style
Birthday cards, greeting cards, thank-you cards: I realised on the weekend that I have collected and kept pretty much every item of decorative card that has ever come my way! My collection includes sickly sweet Strawberry Shortcake scented birthday cards, Holly Hobbie-orama, painted kitties and puppies, 80's girls listening to the latest tapes (Now you are a teenager!), and many hazy water colour garden scenes, irises being particularly represented. None of these seem to have the same appeal as the stash of engagement and wedding cards belonging to my parents and recently 're-found'. Here are a few of my favourite 1970's engagement cards.
