For my virtual visit today I am in Egypt. A country with a very long history that is the home to some of the world’s great man made structures from ancient times. It is sad that they have a tax that people have to pay when their house has been built, so people do not finish building their house making many towns look like one big building site. This gives you the surreal feeling that people’s homes are showing sympathy with the incomplete ancient structures.

On my virtual trip around the world my first stop is to Wales. Wales is a beautiful country with history going back thousands of years. It once held the seat of power for all of Britannia on the Isle of Anglesey. Today it is still a magical place, with mountains, forests to water falls and grottos. Human influence on the beautiful landscape can be see from the stone circles of the druids to Offa’s Dyke to many majestic castles.

Cards can be sent for any number of things, from celebrating a birthday or wedding to just sending a note to say hi. You could do an imaginary trip around the world collecting cards from places that you would like to visit or maybe from places you have visited but when you were there you could not find a suitable card to remind you of that time. Have a look at the cards below and see if you can guess which I have been to.

You can click on any of the cards to be taken to the artist’s store where you can see more of their great work. There are thousands of freelance artists on Greeting Card Universe so I am sure that there will be a style or humour that will suit everyone.

For today’s selection from Greeting Cards Universe I have decided to look at birthday cards. This is only a tiny selection from the hundred of thousands on Greeting Cards Universe from some of my favourite artists. You can get age specific cards from 1 to 110 and beyond and for any relationship you can think of as well as the usual type of cards. As always if you can not find what you are looking for you can put out a request to the community of freelance artists or just to one whose work you like.

For my first pick of art, I have decided to show you some greeting cards from the website Greeting Cards Universe. They have over 300,000 cards on the site and they grow day by day. If you can not find a card for your particular occasion then you can request a card on the site and this will be communicated to nearly 4,000 freelance artists that have work on GCU. If you find a card that you like but is not quit 100% what you want then you can send a message to the artist to make some changes to the card at no extra cost, you can even have your own photo added to the card.
