Jacquie Lawson ecard


Are you familiar with Jacquie Lawson ecards?

Thom, a bloggity friend sent me an animated flash ecard by Jacquie Lawson. That was about three years ago and though he's no longer blogging regularly nowadays, these ecards keep coming. And do I like these cards? You bet!

A few reasons why I like, no, love them:

Following instructions and discovering what comes out is so much fun. I love what I see so much I take a shot of one scene despite knowing the result won't be as I see it live on screen. They are hand paintings! Just my kind of art.And the music works perfectly for me. Here's an example:

Back to fabulous Thom Robinson. Except for our blogging interaction I haven't done anything to compel him to send me cards that are costing him. So I call it pure thoughtfulness on his part. Last week I sent him a message thanking him for the Valentine ecard. He replied asking how CJ is. He even remembered that I have a son. Aren't some people just beautiful, just grand?
