First, take the time to think about what you want to say. A great message is personal and specific, so avoid just writing generic phrases like "happy birthday" or "thinking of you." Instead, try to write something that captures your relationship with the recipient and why you're thinking of them. Be sincere. Your message should be genuine and from the heart. resist the temptation to write something that you think the recipient wants to hear. They will appreciate your sincerity more than anything else.

Next, make sure your message is appropriate for the occasion. If it's a birthday card, keep the message light and celebratory. For a sympathy card, on the other hand, a more heartfelt messages is obviously more appropriate and a shared memory of the loved one can sometimes really help and bring a real sense of connection

Choose a card that not only reflects your personality and style but that will connect in some way to the recipient. There are so many amazing artists cards in our range, so take the time to find a card that you really love and of a location that will resonate with time before you buy and send a card to them.

That's the power of a well selected and well written greeting card, so make sure you send as many as you can during the year to keep in touch with family and loved ones.

Cornish Artists John Dyer and Joanne Short explore London Art Galleries. This blog talks about the selection of British seascapes and Cornish Art John and Joanne found in Tate Britain to inspire them ready for a new year of painting. 

British artist John Dyer found his inspiration for painting whilst in the Amazon rainforest of Brazil in 1989. Tropical plants, with their energetic and dynamic shapes, have informed the artist's paintings ever since. In the early 1990s, the artist returned to his native Cornwall, where he had grown up as Cornwall benefits from the Gulf Stream warm water current that wells up in the Gulf of Mexico and transports the heat to the far-off coast of Cornwall. This heat has allowed many Caribbean and sub-tropical plants to thrive in the region providing John Dyer with endless tropical and Caribbean wall art inspiration.
