Whoa! Graphic Designer Scott Church of <23rd Day paper goods company has created what is perhaps the ultimate design for a surprise Birthday card: a Land Shark. Because no one expects a Shark Attack in the Garden!
Here is Scott’s original artwork, from which the card design was adapted. I think it’s just fantastic.

Rob and Monica are a fun couple I know from the FaceBook. They enjoy first wave British Punk Rock, shopping for vintage housewares and collecting mid-Century design. For Rob’s birthday this past week, Monica presented her true love with the dessert pictured above, which Rob described as a “Jello Cake with Clowns.”
“It really was not cake,” Monica clarified, “it was just Jello with Redi Whip on top! I used a vintage red Pyrex bowl and vintage clowns (Rob likes clowns) and a vintage birthday cake sign.” Who would not want a girlfriend who would make them such a fun and personalized dessert? Monica further explained that she made the Jello because Rob already had cake at work, and then they had more cake the next day at her sisters. And, as they say, there is always room for Jello.
