Alison Lingley's Country Strife greetings card shows the dream and the reality, when it comes to keeping a small flock of sheep.
The front of the card shows a bucolic scene of well behaved sheep amoungst loving owner; opening the card however present's the reality of mischeaveious sheep, a muddy field and a half eaten hat. This card is from Alison's Animals range of Country Strife animal themed humorous cards by Splimple.
Designed by Alison Lingley, the card is made from FSC paper and measures 250mm x 150mm and comes with its own envelope. The card contains an image on the front and inside, the inside cover of the card has been left blank for you to write your own personal message.
Splimple says "Alison and her animals are 100% biodegradable - so if it wasn't for cards like this one, 100 years from now there would be no sign they ever existed, which is a bit depressing really. We don't know how to break it to her, but this card is biodegradable too, so she's just going to have to accept that she'll eventually be forgotten about, like the rest of us.. unless she becomes Prime Minister, marries the heir to the throne or invents the talking sprout".
