The Post-Modern Postcard: A Beachy E-Card From Card Lust

ecardWhen I went to Florida at the end of October, I didn’t blog about it. I barely tweeted about it, although I did Instagram it. I certainly didn’t send any postcards, but then again I’m pretty sure that the last time I sent was a postcard was five years ago from Barcelona.

So I’ve decided to send my blog a belated e-card from Card Lust, a brand-new greeting app for the iPhone created by Felicity Loughrey, who recently guest-blogged for Travelogged about her Fitzroy Island family vacay. It’s the post-modern postcard: a watercolor design personalized and delivered by the latest technology. And unlike a few of my disappointing photos, these watercolors look awesome whether you have the latest iPhone or not.

This dreamy beach painting by Australian/Brooklyn artist Elspeth Tremblay is the obvious choice for my Florida e-card. Just looking at it puts me right back on Siesta Key beach, picking up a shell to show my toddler. If I saw a box of colorful notecards like these, I’d buy them and then never send them out of laziness and greediness. But this e-card took about 30 seconds to send and it lives on my iPhone so I get to keep it too, so my two vices are immediately remedied. Next time, I’ll send my e-cards right from the beach.
