When cards won't do

I can spend a long time looking through greeting cards at the store and never find one that fits. They are dorky or don't say the right thing. So instead I spend even more time making my own, as in this case. Since T. likes Dwell magazine and didn't have a subscription, I decided for Valentine's Day to surprise him with one. I designed a "Dwell" cover for him for the front of the card. The photo is of my parents' lake house in GA and the text areas are mostly in jest. He didn't realize it wasn't real until he looked closely, so I felt successful. The first magazine arrived yesterday, so it was pretty good timing.
