Mushy Gushy Goodness

I got an email today about a greeting card website called Mushy Gushy. Normally I would have just put the link in my “bloggy to-do” folder and looked at it later, but the email mentioned that you could cut a face from a personal photograph and paste it into a free e-card.

Needless to say, I was intrigued.

Well, I checked it out – and y’all, it’s more fun! Just more fun! So much fun!

I had such a good time clicking around that I actually made a card, and even better – thanks to Mushy Gushy’s detailed photo cropping features – I was able to make my face thinner than it’s been since 1998.


So go have fun. It’s an adorable website.

Edited to add: I was clicking around on the site again a little bit ago, and I ran across one word you might not want the kids to see. It’s not a horrible word or anything, but if you look under the category labeled “interactive,” you’ll see what I’m talking about – you might not care for the context. So show the young’uns at your discretion – it could still be a really fun activity for parents and kids to do together if there’s proper supervision.

  10. Sounds like so much fun! I’ll have to give it a try! I love your new hairdo! Very cute and stylish! I think you’ve found yourself a keeper as far as a new stylist (do they call them beauticians anymore or am I dating myself?!!) Anyway, reading through your posts (I haven’t been here for a couple of days), I got a good chuckle as always, and girlfriend, I needed that! Take care and God bless!
