International Friendship Day

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Today is the International Day of Friendship, a day established by the United Nations 2011. The day evolved from the idea that by building friendships between people around the world, especially the young, people would be brought closer together and peace between different nations and communities would be more likely. Today, organisations and governments around the world will hold activities and events to try to contribute to this.

We think that this is a lovely sentiment and we hope that, on some level, our cards play a role in bringing friends together due to the fact that they can be sent around the world with the click of a mouse. Why not use this day as an opportunity to tell a dear friend that you are thinking about them – our note ecards, thinking of you’ ecards and wise words ecards are perfect to send ‘just because’.

If you are doing something special to mark International Friendship Day then please feel free to comment below this post, email us at katie@katiescards.com, tweet us or Facebook us. We would love to hear from you!

New Coco Chanel Ecard!

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

We’re delighted to announce that we have a new ecard on the Katie’s Cards website! Following on from the success of our Audrey Hepburn quotation ecard, we thought it would be great to add another wonderful female style icon into the mix. Coco Chanel is one of the most eminent fashion icons ever and so it was only right that her quotation was sketched in beautiful calligraphy that looks as though it has been hand-stiched.

Pinterest News!

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Since April, we have been creating ‘wise words’ ecards and we’ve been delighted with how well they have been received. Our wise words are simply designed static images which feature inspirational quotations from eminent individuals such as Thoreau, Elison and Aristotle.

We had started to see more and more images featuring quotations across the internet, particularly on Pinterest, and so we decided to make some of our own: the response couldn’t have been better! Our Audrey Hepburn quote ecard (pictured above) has proved to be the most popular so far and has been shared 43 times on Pinterest! To view the rest of the Wise Words collection, simply click here.

New George Eliot Ecard

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Recently, we’ve been adding more ecards to our Wise Words collection. This George Eliot ecard is one of the newest additions. Eliot was a female author who used a male pen name in the hope that her work would be taken seriously and she wrote a number of successful novels in the late 1800s including the classic, Middlemarch.

National Smile Month

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

This month is National Smile Month, I’m not quite sure who makes up these events but it seems like a good one to acknowledge! We have a selection of ecards that you can send ‘just because’ and we’re sure that they’d bring a smile to anyone’s face. Our ‘thinking of you’ cards are perfect to send to someone who is going through a tough time and our note cards are a great way in which to send someone a little message to brighten up their day.

'Thinking of You' Ecard

We’re also planning to add to our new ‘Wise Words’ category which are appropriate to send at any time of the year. You don’t need to have a special occasion to send a card, in fact, sending one ‘just because’ can often mean so much more.

Coming soon…

Monday, June 17th, 2013

I am delighted to announce that we will be adding some new ecards to our ‘wise words’ category very soon. The new cards feature the philosophical words of Epictetus, the musings of Audrey Hepburn and the words of George Eliot. The new ecards will join the two ‘wise words’ ecards already available on the site, which we added in April.

You can view and send these cards, which feature the words of Aristotle and Gandhi, by clicking here.
