Today's upload to the site has been of these fantastic American 1970s greeting cards (don't worry I'm nearly done uploading cards)!

She has a cartoon style of illustration, and almost child like. I recently discovered a tea towel also by her, and books with illustrations... thus begins another obsession I fear!  View our range...
