Wacky Vintage Cards

You can still find any number of silly, funny, even wacky cards in any card shop today - but do you remember ones like these?
I have some that I have saved since the 70's! Just felt like sharing them with you today.

inside:
A birthday card from my friend Debbie:
The message inside? "Merry Christmas"!
And a Christmas card from her, too:
....and the inside of that one:

I found a couple of unused ones here in the house, in the secretary that belonged to my mother-in-law. I wouldn't want to give this one to anybody:
Inside:

Not very nice.
And this one:
Inside:
That's just mean.
No wonder they were unused.

Wow, wonder who she thought she might send those to? Great old cards. Debbie has a good sense of humor! Love T

Oh, I'm sure she wouldn't have ever sent them! I believe they may have been out of a box of cards - perhaps some of the others were not quite so bad, and that's why these couple were left over - too mean!

I remember these! And sure do miss that hand-lettering look. Designers have a ton-o fonts to choose from today, but they just can't duplicate the custom-made look of these vintage beauties!

Heidi - that "Richest man in the graveyard" one - is that a Jules Feiffer? I had a book by him called "Some Things are Scary" by him and it looks very similar. I loved that book!!
