Etsy Spotlight: Emily McDowell’s Greeting Cards Are A Welcome Slice Of Honesty

Do you ever feel empty inside as you troll the Hallmark aisle at the drugstore, searching for something, anything that is actually applicable to the person you’re buying it for? I always feel a need to write some kind of gushy side note inside greeting cards to prove I actually care about the person I’m buying it for, because the cookie-cutter phrasing on the packaging simply doesn’t do the job.
