If you thought her emails were funny, you should be lucky enough to receive one of her homemade cards. After discussing Leanne's birthday card to Josie ("Happy Birthday Adopted Down Syndrome Baby!") my mom and I were reminiscing about some of the other greeting card doozies Leanne has created over the years. You won't find sentiments like this perusing the aisles at your local Hallmark store:
One time my Dad had the stomach flu and Leanne made him a "Get Well" card, complete with a graphic drawing of my Dad vomiting.
My mom got a call at work one day from her cleaning lady. She had found a card from Leanne that read "Don't clean my room or I kill you." She wasn't sure how to handle this situation. You see, Leanne has all of her things in a certain order and she always hated when the cleaning lady would come because things would inevitably end up put back wrong. Leanne decided a death threat would solve that problem.
When my Grandpa went into the hospital for prostate surgery, Leanne created a custom card that read "Grandpa, feel better. Bladder. Pee Problems." When the nurse complimented Leanne's medical diagnostic skills, Leanne immediately said "I'm looking for a job. Will you hire me?" to which the nurse replied "Well, that's not really my decision." Refusing to take no for an answer, Leanne said "Will you be my reference?" Priceless!
My mom's most recent birthday card from Leanne had a drawing of a coffin and a grave on it. While the illustration was certainly a direct reflection of the fact that my sister has my Grandpa's recent death on her mind, it doesn't exactly remind my mom that she's still vibrant and youthful...
So when Hallmark doesn't have just what you're looking for, maybe you could use an Aunt Leanne custom creation. I think the slogan should be: When you care enough to send the brutally honest.
