Earth Day is Tuesday 22 April

Earth Day is this Tuesday April 22.  To show our support of this global initiative I have created a card inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote and we are making this card free for everyone to send along with our other Earth Day ecards all year long.
The card is part of our new series of Notes, for quick and easy sending, with full mobile support.  And best of all it features two of my favorite flowers, roses and peonies, all hand painted with loving detail!

2011 Earth Day eCard

Our newest card combines fantasy with storytelling for something a little above and beyond what we usually do for one card. The inspiration for this year’s Earth Day card was seeing the desert spring to life with flowers after it rained for the first time in over a decade year’s ago when my family lived in Chile.

The Spring

The life sustaining power of water will be a hot issue in the years to come as the world struggles to adapt to a changing environment all over the world. No wonder then that Earth Day, April 22, has become an international movement. Our small contribution is to offer this new card for Earth Day free of charge for all to send.

We will be adding our new card for Easter to the site shortly. In the meantime we hope you find creative ways to contribute to the global Earth Day celebrations on Friday.

Here are our other free ecards.

Free eCard for Earth Day – Blue Planet

We have added a new card, “Blue Planet”, to our selection just in time for Earth Day April 22nd. It features a happy and up-tempo Brazilian chorinho musical piece by Anne Lenoir, Carlos Oliveira and Alex Calatahud, who have graciously offered their music for this card. If you are not familiar with this style of music, the card includes some information about it and the musicians.

Inspired by the music and the diversity of Brazilian flora and fauna, I set about creating a card that would inspire us to take a little better care of our planet – for our own sake if for no other reasons. The wildlife in the card, especially our intelligent counterparts below water, the dolphins, have an important message to deliver. And although intended for Earth Day, I think it is also ideally suited for cheering anyone up or saying congratulations.

Joining last year’s card, “Roof of the World”, this one is this year’s card that is available free of charge for a good cause. So please join us in celebrating our blue planet and Earth Day on April 22nd along with billions around the world.
