Does Jen hate letterpress printing SO much that I have to create and license all of the art and farm it off to art licensing companies??

Maybe.

Did I even see Jen on her birthday last week??

Hmm, I don’t think so… But I still made her a card because my love for her just bubbles over and soils the stovetop with a sort of gravy that becomes crusty and has to be scraped off months later with steel wool and maybe a knife.

Whew!

That’s a lot of love!CATSUPGET IT?!?! CAT-SUP???

Omg, it just doesn’t stop over here!

PUT A CAT ON IT.kitty sweatshirtThat sweatshirt is not to be worn ironically and can be yours for a mere $65.

But really, it’s not even realistic. What sort of galaxy is full of white kittens and multi-colored roses??

And where’s the wine and unicorn??

All of those adorable kittens in space DID inspire a graduation card. Don’t ask me why. DON’T ASK ME.may the road rise to meet you.better

Um, ok.

How about the subject of dog poop?rsvp.dont step inI KNOW this is a derivative of MY OWN card.dont step inAND a card I made for ANOTHER Art Licensor. Recycled Paper Greetings.
