The designs include a floral border with birds by Edith Bertha Crapper (1896-1979); alongside lettering by London-born calligrapher Violet Wilson (b.1902) and delicate border paintings by the German-born English artist Marta Bowerley (1873-1916). Mixing words of comfort, joy and inspiration. the card fronts are each printed: 'Birthday Greetings and Good Wishes'; ‘A Wish: Much Pleasure, Some Leisure, Some Treasure, But Happiness Without Measure!’; 'May the Blue Bird of Happiness Build Its Nest In Your Life's Garden'; 'Sunshine on Your Path: Speedwell on Your Way'; 'I count myself in nothing else so happy As in a soul remembering my good Friends' (by William Shakespeare, ‘Richard II’, Act II, Scene III); and 'Time Is Eternity' (‘Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, But for those who love Time is Eternity’), a poem sometimes attributed to Henry van Dyke (1852-1953).

The website advises it is based on a Japanese design but the item is actually made in India and labelled as such. Initially ordered as a gift but felt it was a little to small. However it is very pretty and meets the criteria of a small make up bag so will make good use of it for essential make up on days away.

I use them to send little words on encouragement to friends who are having a hard time. I love the design and quality of these cards: it only take a couple of minutes and it is so much nicer to get something through the post than a text or an email in today's electronic age.
