Since a new Baptism/Christening prick and stitch pattern has been released on the Stitching Cards web site, I thought it would be a good idea to offer some suggestions for words to go on your greetings card.

The Beer Glasses design from the Stitching Cards web site is proving very popular so I thought it would be a bit of fun to find a drinking song to go with it. You could add the words on an insert to your card.

In these culturally diverse times it is useful to know the dates that various peoples celebrate their official holidays and exchange greetings cards.
Humorous greetings cards are very popular as they help cheer up our lives and add a note of whimsy to our card giving. Have a bit of fun by suggesting a caption for this card and maybe win a Stitching Cards Value Pack of your choice.
