The amazing Julie Kirk of Notes on Paper has been running a series of cards she makes called "snippets of words." The idea is to find a random phrase from pages of text and use them on a card. I think she suggests starting by building a card and then searching for a phrase which will make your creation complete. That works for me! Here's two cards I've created recently. The one on the right says "parties and late nights should be left until the week-end." I think I'll send it to Henry once he's away at University with a bit of cash tucked inside. The other reads "'I don't quite understand you,' she said, as politely as she could." I'm not sure to whom or for what occasion to send that card (but I like it anyway)! Do you have any ideas?
