Global Celebration New Yew eCard

We have added a new card called "Global Celebration" in time for sending your New Year's greetings. New Year's is one of my favorite holidays for several reasons, not least the parties and looking forward to another year with my family. Since we have members from all over the world and enjoy hearing from many of you how you celebrate your holidays, I wanted to create a card that celebrated our global family. It is illustrated in watercolor combined with really festive colors and music to make a nice big splash for all your celebrations.

If you are working on getting your last cards out, there is still time.

Here are some other New Year cards.



Christmas Choir eCard

We have added one more card to the site called "Choir". This is a Christmas rendition of the very popular card I created a few months ago called "Ave Maria". It still features the very detailed stained glass window I painted using watercolor for the original card, but is made more festive for Christmas with a boys choir singing "O Come All Ye Faithful".

New Ojolie Holiday eCards

This year we have gone to extra lengths to provide you with more cards for the holidays than any year before. I sincerely hope you will find several cards that are just right for penning your holiday greetings and so I am happy to announce two more cards.

"Santa's Special Night" is perhaps one of the most complex animations I have created to date, although there are a few other cards that can compete. This card was inspired by the spirit of going out of our way to delight and surprise those around us that are dear to us. After Santa leaves the workshop the little elves get mighty busy preparing for his return.

"Jazzy Christmas" is very different from the above mentioned card, setting the mood for relaxing and getting all cozy and snuggled up to something - or someone - warm! Over hot chocolate with tons of whipped cream. And of course cats are just about as laid back as it gets, so naturally take center stage in this card. Set to a great piece of jazz on piano and sax and I think you get the picture.

For a limited time we are also offering a free gift membership when you sign up or renew for a 2 year membership. This way you save both on the lower membership cost of just $15 for two years and have a wonderful gift you can share with someone who might also like to use the cards. Since we have never had a promotion like this before, we are only trying it for a limited time, so take advantage of it while it lasts. See the detail of the promotion.

You may also have noticed that we have launched the site in French, Spanish and Dutch in order to reach more than just the English speaking world. So if you have friends and family who prefer to receive cards in one of these languages, you can now select the appropriate language when you send your cards. The recipient will receive their email notification in the language you selected for the ecard. If you have been using English all along and prefer that, just ignore any of this as English is the default language.

eCards for Sunny Christmas and Hanukkah

As promised we have added two more cards to our site for the holidays and three more will follow in the coming days. These cards really are the result of months of hard work and I am thrilled to finally be sharing them with you.

"Bright & Merry" was created for anyone spending the holidays in warmer climates or the southern hemisphere - or perhaps just wishes they would! It is set to a great bossa nova version of "Jingle Bells" on a beach and ... well, have a look for yourself to see the rest.



"Hanukkah" is our first card for the festival of lights. I am fond of the music I chose for it, which moved me. I think it perfectly sets the tone for a joyous celebration.



Let me know what you think!

Spread some holiday cheer, one card at a time.
Holiday cards

Sure, email is great, but there's something uniquely heartwarming about the kind of card that comes in the actual mail — especially for folks who don't hear from us as often as they should, simply because they aren't online.

So we've made it as easy to send snail-mail holiday cards as it is to send email. Simply fill out the form below and we'll send one free holiday postcard on your behalf. Yes, through the mail and everything.

Gingerbread House Christmas Card

In the coming weeks we will be rolling out the new cards for the holidays and without revealing too much, I can say that they are the result of months of hard work and planning. With a variety of cards we hope you will find a few that are just perfect for sending your holiday cheer. The next card to be released will be for Hanukkah, a last minute inspiration after many requests by members.

In addition we are happy to announce that another holiday card has been added to the site called "Gingerbread House" - a sweet tale of how Mr. & Mrs. Gingerbread first met.

Last week we also announced that we had added a card for Saint Nicholas Day on December 6th. You can send or schedule any of these cards right now so you don't forget. The Saint Nicholas card is also well suited as a general Season's Greeting with a little bit of interesting trivia at the end about how Saint Nicholas and Santa Claus are related.

Have a Great Week!
