On the move...

Nope, Ky and I are not moving, although Saturday morning we did tour some very cool new townhomes near us... Not cool enough to inspire us to pack up, though.

I got an order for 20 moving cards from a co-worker. They're a clean, simple design that emphasizes the little truck packed for the move. The truck is placed just slightly to the left of center to imply motion. On the back I pre-printed their information (blurred out for their privacy) with a little rhyme that includes their last name. They'll go out in clear envelopes with the recipient's address in the blank area on the right.
