Bringing the OLD back!

It was nearly the end of the month of Ramadan. The Muslims were still dedicatedly fasting (so were I). And everyone were busy preparing for the celebration of Eid day - shopping, cleaning the house and all. Five to ten years back before Facebook or Twitter kicked in, everyone including my sister and myself would buy a bunch of greeting cards to be sent out to families and friends. And we in return, would receive more than a dozen each  few days before the celebration. It was really something to look forward to. 

But, you probably have guessed. No one really send greeting cards nowadays except for cheap companies solely for promotion and advertising. So, I was thinking that night that maybe I should bring the tradition back into the present. I mean, who would expect to receive greeting cards from friends and families nowadays? Which is good right? It will be something special and certainly surprising (or probably a total shock to younger generations who never seen a greeting card before or never knew such tradition ever exists)

 So, I thought maybe I should start making my very own cards and send them out to my friends. So, that's what I did. And it didn't took me that long to produce one. 



The outcome was fantastic. I really love the printing done by Bormas... Not only I think it is cheap and reasonable but the printing and the colour turned out to be beyond amazing! And plus, my friends love it. Haha
