Clearing up after Christmas

when we were clearing up the christmas related things today, i came across a card i mean to blog about when i received it. it was one of my 3 Christmas cards from a Swap-bot swap. this one was from Oddlittleloop, and had the most wonderful quote inside:

According to Wiki, George Washington Carver reputedly discovered three hundred uses for peanuts and hundreds more uses for soybeans, pecans and sweet potatoes. Among the listed items that he suggested to southern farmers to help them economically were adhesives, axle grease, bleach, buttermilk, chili sauce, fuel briquettes, ink, instant coffee, linoleum, mayonnaise, meat tenderizer, metal polish, paper, plastic, pavement, shaving cream, shoe polish, synthetic rubber, talcum powder and wood stain.

Mum decided to clear out our card draw where we keep those cards that are more special and important at that moment in time. amongst some cards that had been sent to david for his birthday from a previous year i came across this:

Violent Veg are superb cartoons and i guess in some ways were inspiration for my christmas card designs this year.
