Sunday Writing Prompt – 13th September – Cards

This week Michael gives us the subject of ‘Cards’ for our prompt.
This week write your response in story or poetry form in which ‘cards’ of one form or another feature.
It doesn’t have to be limited to playing cards, it could card of any kind, credit cards, business cards, just go where the prompt sends you.

I wrote this five years ago about my imaginary Dorothy Poole. Please have a read.

The picture of the card in the story is not one I made, but I think this one is pretty similar though it was for my niece’s wedding rather than a birthday.


I’m old fashioned, and like to send cards for birthdays and anniversaries, but I don’t for the latter these days. I’ve just realised it was Bro’s anniversary on the 2nd and I forgot. Sorry guys.

With the current situation regarding Covid, I have got my card making kit out on several occasions, making Christmas cards, birthday cards and general what I term ‘Hello’ cards to send to friends rather than use ordinary writing paper. They say they love to receive them which makes the effort worthwhile.
Sadly, I am finding it more and more difficult to find the trimmings I prefer, and shops that previously stocked a variety now only have blank cards and some childish stickers which are nothing like what I’m after. No doubt I will go into an Aladdin’s Cave of a craft shop in the future and go mad stocking up.
There is a knock on effect to this though.
Whilst I get a lot of pleasure out of making them, my list of recipients is getting shorter.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love all your cards, but especially like the rose one, second from bottom.

  3. These are wonderful, Di. Just the sort of thing I like making too.

  4. I love making cards. Once upon a tie I was heavily into stamping, coloring, and embossing cards. Then once I got hooked on scrapbooking those went by the wayside. I have toooooo many supplies now.
