What a Hoot!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

Greeting Card Fun Facts:

  • U.S. consumers purchase approximately seven billion greeting cards each year, generating nearly $7.5 billion in retail sales.
  • Women are more likely than men to buy several cards at once.  However, men generally spend more on a single card.
  • Until Christmas 1961, the UK Post Office used to deliver cards on Christmas morning.

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

Speaking of hoots!  I love owls and you can tell by some of the cards that I make.  They are fun just sitting on a branch or fence and it’s fun to give them eyes and different characteristics.  Even though we don’t have any animals of our own in the house, I love the birds outside in my yard as they come each day to see what’s to eat.  I always make sure those feeders are filled up just for them.

I am making some really cool cards in the next few months.  Join me, won’t you?
