If you’re anything like me then choosing greeting cards takes you forever. I stand there looking for that special card to miraculously appear out of thin air. I look at the same comedy cards and the same vintage picture cards with ironic lines underneath them and I just go ‘meh’ because I’ve bought them 100 times before. So I’m always really excited when I find a new range, be it comedy or just really lovely arty farty cards.
Today it’s the arty farty type that I have discovered and I’ve never seen cards like them before. They are by an artist called Ruth Jackson, who I’m pleased to say is a local to me in Dorset, and they are little drawings which incorporate a piece or pieces of colourful pencil shavings. So simple but so effective. There’s pencil sharpening bunting, flowers, ladies dresses and even Christmas reindeer. Whatever the celebration, Ruths got it covered.
