Remember this card? With the... expressive gesture that I had inadvertently animated?
I figured out how to use it in a way that I think would be inoffensive to just about everybody.
My friends, Sue and Sarah were separately diagnosed and treated for breast cancer this past year. They're doing well, but it was hard to see them go through this and not be able to express my thoughts to them with a typical get well card -- nothing seemed right.
This card, with its strong, gutsy "you can't keep me down" attitude says what I haven't been able to say.
I think this would work for other kinds of diseases, as well, where you are trying to encourage a loved one to fight their hardest.
Once I got the idea, the rest of the card came together quite quickly and I was able to post it for sale this afternoon on etsy.
