Who knew?

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

Since we’re often trying to devise new birthday ecard designs, we thought it would be fun to try to unearth some lesser known birthday facts to inspire us …

– Though, to me, it always seems like there are tonnes of birthdays in March and April, about 9% of all people celebrate their birthdays in August, making it the month with the highest birth rate! It is followed by July and September.

– Allegedly, the date on which the least number of people are born is the 22nd of May.

– In contrast, the highest number of people are born on the 5th October … 9 months after New Year’s Eve.

– Around eighteen million people sing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song every day (though I’m not sure how anyone could work this out!)

Do you have any surprising birthday facts that you’d like to share with us? If so, comment under this post or email your suggestions to If you know anyone who has a birthday coming up, why not include one of these fun facts in their ecard?

Say ‘Thank You’ With Katie’s Cards

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

There always seem to be so many birthdays at this time of year and if you’re one of the lucky people who has just been lavished with cake and presents, you were probably thinking about saying thank you to those who made your birthday so special. We have a lovely selection of thank you ecards on the Katie’s Cards website which includes a cartoon-like ecard set in the jungle, a floral artistic ecard and more traditional, simple thank you notes.

Spring Clean

Friday, April 5th, 2013

Though it seems (here in the U.K. at least) that spring will never come, we are told that it’s on its way. Besides longer daylight hours, warm breezes and spring flowers, this can only mean one thing … It’s time for a spring clean! For many people, this means sprucing up their house, giving the rooms a lick of fresh paint and getting out in the garden to do the jobs which were put off during the chilly winter months.

For others, this means buying or renting a new house and we have some lovely New Home ecards which are perfect for this occasion. Our ‘New Home’ ecards are a fun way of welcoming someone to their new house and, since they are sent straight to the recipient’s inbox, they won’t take up valuable space in amongst all of the boxes! You can view our ‘new home’ ecards and can find out more about becoming a member of Katie’s Cards on our website.

Birthday Ecard of the Day!

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013

It’s a fun, quirky birthday ecard which would be suitable to send to most ages. Watch the various mind-boggling contraptions whir and spin around to finally produce a wonderful birthday cake!

You can still send you Easter ecards today!

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

If you haven’t sent your Easter greetings to your friends and family yet then don’t panic, you can still send one of our Easter ecards today and it will arrive by tomorrow. When you send an Easter ecard from our collection, it whizzes around the world and instantly arrives in the inbox of the recipient. Alternatively, you can schedule your Easter ecard to be delivered first thing on Easter morning and, since each of our ecards can be customised to include your own personal message, what could be nicer to wake up to on Easter morning? Except for a visit from the Easter bunny of course…

Seasonal Food Ideas

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Here at Katie’s Cards, we’re always thinking about ways in which we can be as ‘green’ as possible. We’re proud of the fact that our ecards are very environmentally friendly but there are tonnes of other choices that we all make every day which impact the environment. One way we can be a little kinder to the environment is by buying and eating as much seasonal, locally-produced food as possible. I thought it would be helpful, therefore, to suggest a few seasonal recipes perfect for Easter weekend:

– In terms of vegetables, spinach, shallots, leeks and, of course, spring onions are all in season. Why not whip up this vegetarian ricotta and spinach lasagna?

– Meat wise, it’s all about rabbit and lamb at this time of year. For a twist on the classic Easter meat, try these lamb and apricot meatballs.

– Rhubarb is also in season at this time of year, and this Easter rhubarb and apple pie would be the perfect chocolate-free dessert for an otherwise cocoa-rich Easter.

We’re very excited about Easter here in the Katie’s Cards office and you can spread the Easter cheer by sending your friends and family members one of our colourful, animated Easter ecards.

St. Patrick’s Day Myth-Buster

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

As you are probably aware, tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day. Because we’ve been creating a new St. Patrick’s Day ecard recently, we’ve been busy researching the meaning behind the festival and St. Patrick himself. There have been a few surprises along the way:

  1. The symbolic colour of Ireland and of St. Patrick’s Day used to be blue. It only changed to green when various political groups started to wear green during the 19th Century.
  2. St. Patrick was Welsh, not Irish!
  3. The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was held in Boston in the United States and not in Ireland.
  4. Some cities in the United States including Chicago, Illinois and Savannah, Georgia dye their rivers bright emerald green on March 17th.

So there you have it, four little St. Patrick’s Day facts to impress your friends with tomorrow! On the other hand, why not send them a personalised St. Patrick’s Day ecard containing some St. Patrick’s Day trivia? You can view our full collection of St. Patrick’s Day ecards here.

Green fingers

Monday, March 11th, 2013

March is the perfect time of year to get in the garden and get your hands dirty – the sun is (hopefully) beginning to shine more often and there are still enough rain showers to keep your garden fresh and hydrated. The Royal Horticultural Society provides a helpful guide of what to plant in March in terms of fruit and vegetables. March is the prime planting time for strawberries so if you get them in the ground on time they should fruit in time for summer. In terms of vegetables, it’s the perfect time to plant your potatoes, asparagus and shallots…

Happy Mother’s Day!
