Cards for Any Occasion

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

How come I buy loads and loads of greeting cards so that I'm ready for ANY occasion, and yet I never have the card I need for an occasion that pops up?

Yesterday I went to a birthday celebration.  I did have several birthday cards in stock, but not one of them seemed appropriate.


A family member has an anniversary this weekend.  Is there an anniversary card in the bunch?  That would be a big NO.


It seems that my stash is mostly blank cards.  Yeah, you can use them for any occasion, right?  Well, not really.  Somehow a sailboat on the water does not convey birthday greetings, unless your pal sails.  Or how about a big bunch of sunflowers as a sympathy card?

So, off to the store I will go ... to buy yet more cards.

Do you have a stash of cards for every occasion?
