Card 01 "Pulling Up Flowers"

Suggested Uses: Mother’s Day, Baby Shower, Friendship

Doesn't this card represent life in general?  It can be happy or sad, positive or negative, exhilirating or frustrating...it all depends on your perspectivce.  That's what I tried to convey with this card.  On the one hand, Dibble received a heart-felt bouquet from her little girl, which is a wonderful feeling.  On the other hand, all  her hard work has just been undone!  We left the inside blank so you can insert your own "perspective". 

THIS CARD COMES WITH A SOFT PINK ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
  • Welcome to motherhood!
  • Sending you a bouquet of good wishes today!

Card 02 "Friends having your back, priceless"

Suggested Uses: Friendship, Birthday, Encouragement

The inspiration for this card came one day while I was standing in line for Olga's restaurant.  Ahead of me were two women who were obviously "cleaned up" for a day of shopping and respite from their families and household responsibilities.  I couldn't help but notice the price tag sticking out of this lady's shirt!  It made me smile as I quitely informed her of the "situation".  She gratefully tucked the tag back in.  I hope she saw as much humor in the situation as I did!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A CELESTIAL BLUE ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • I treasure our friendship. Happy Birthday!
  • Thanks for always being there for me.
  • We’ve been friends for a long time and I want you to know that you’ll always have me in your corner. Thinking of you.

Card 03 "Smoothie Bar"

Suggested Uses:  Birthday and Friendship

My original partner based this card on his mother.  She had great aspirations for embracing a healthy new lifestyle and had all the clothing and equipment to ensure success.  But she was easily sidetracked; but she never quit trying!  Luckily for her she is a beautiful person no matter what her fitness level at any given time.

THIS CARD COMES WITH A SUNSHINE YELLOW ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • For your birthday, let's go to some kind of bar. Your choice!
  • Rome wasn't built in a day.
  • Keep up the good work!
  • Let's meet for coffee. Call me.
  • It's time to start our walking program again. Call me so we can set up a time!

Card 04 "Dibble Atlas"

Suggested Uses: Coping, Thinking of You, Thank You

I think this is a great multi-purpose card.  It is our company logo and describes Dibble better than words could ever do.  What I love is that even with all her obligations and some strain showing around her eyes, she still has a matching outfit on with her purse (ie. lifeline) securely on her shoulder! 

THIS CARD COMES WITH A BRIGHT GREEN ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • I don’t know how you fit it all in, but everyone is glad you do! Thanks for all your help.
  • I’m either super human or super crazy. How have you been?
  • I’ve been busy but I think of you often. Have a great day!
  • Is your world getting a little heavy? Let me know if you need any help.

Card 07 "Low-Rise Jeans"

Suggested Uses: Birthday, Friendship, Mother’s Day

I wish I could take credit for one of our most popular cards, but its inspiration came from my friend Patti.  I could totally relate to the granny panties sticking out of the jeans as it happens to me on a regular basis!  I like to be in style, but does that mean I have to give up comfort, too????

THIS CARD COMES WITH A MAGENTA ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • You always look great! Happy Birthday!
  • I’ll give up my ‘mom jeans’, but I’m clinging to the granny panties! Have a great Mother’s Day!

This was the last card to complete our original set of 24 greeting cards.  The card explains my state of mind at that time!  All the card is missing is Dibble's husband next to her curled up, sleeping peacefully, with a To Do list the size of a post-it note!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A SOFT PINK ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Let’s move lunch to the top of the To Do list. I’ll give you a call next week!

Card 10 "Juggling Balls"

Suggested Uses: Thanks!

I found myself divorced, with two young children, a CPA consulting business, and this new vision called Dibble.  My life was (and continues to be) a complex juggling act that only works because I am surrounded by great people.  I send this one out often as a way to express my appreciation beyond just saying "thanks".  I think people know that it takes a little effort to get the card, address it, stamp it, and remember to give it to the mail carrier!  Try it today and make someone know that they are "extra appreciated".

THIS CARD COMES WITH A TANGERINE ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • My juggling act couldn’t work without you, Mom. Thanks for being my friend.
  • That ball almost dropped. Thanks for catching it for me!
  • I couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks!!!

Card 11 "Queen for a day"

Suggested Uses: Mother’s Day, Baby Shower, Friendship

Some days motherhood seems like one thankless job after another.  Underpaid and Underappreciated!  And then comes a simple act of kindness and the prior frustrations seem to slip away.  It's amazing how children have the ability to do that.  It's amazing how a greeting card can convey that same feeling to someone just waiting to get this card from you!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A HOT PINK ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • You’re a wonderful Mother, not to mention a wonderful daughter. Happy Mother’s Day!
  • All the little things you do don’t go unnoticed. Thinking of you today.

Card 12 "Maternity Express"

Suggested Uses: Pregnancy, New Baby

I really enjoy this card because it is realistic.  Even with all the excitement and anticipation of the new baby, there is a little part of us that is wondering what the heck we've done!  So Dibble represents the excitement and Dibble's husband represents the apprehension....the ying and the yang.  Wow, this is deep for a Dibble card!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A TANGERINE ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • You're pregnant! Enjoy every moment.
  • Parenthood has more ups than downs. Enjoy the ride!
  • Good luck on your new journey.

Card 13 "So, you don't work?"

Suggested Uses: Mother's Day, Birthday, Friendship

Anyone that thinks staying home with three children is a cake walk, hasn't stayed at home with three children!  I've been on both sides of the fence (stay-at-home and working) and both present their challenges.  Face it, we are in a busy, tiring part of life.  But it is also exciting, fresh, and something that I wouldn't trade for the world. 

THIS CARD COMES WITH A HOT PINK ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy your day off work...well we can dream anyway.
  • You may be tired, but you still look marvelous! Happy Birthday.
  • What have you been up to?
  • Ok, take deep cleansing breaths! That guy is lucky he's living to see another day!!! Happy Birthday (or Happy Mother's Day)

Card 14 "Life Sucks"

Suggested Uses: Encouragement, Friendship

My kids are not allowed to say the word "sucks", so you can understand my dilemna at printing this card!  The inspiration for this card came from my friend Terri.  She had just lost a long-term contract with one of her biggest clients and she found her life suddenly changing...drastically.  She was being given words of encouragement and support from her friends and family.  On the beach one day she said that she wished someone would just acknowledge that things "sucked" right now.  Voila...a Dibble card is born!  I had my doubts, but this has ended up being one of our top sellers.  It acknowledges the hardship, but in a softer way (if that's possible!).  This card is only good for those with a hearty sense of humor!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A LEMON YELLOW ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • I've heard and I keep thinking of you.
  • When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. And if you need to add some vodka to that, it might help your perspective.
  • I'll buy you dinner and we can talk.

Card 15 Science Project

Suggested Use: Friendship, Birthday, Mother's Day

My 2nd grader had to come up with a game that her class could play, complete with instructions.  I took the teacher literally when she said that it must be the child's work.  So I think my daughter came up with a good idea and it definitely looked homemade by a 7-year old.  We walk in Monday morning with her project only to find these unbelieveable games that could not have been constructed by a child, let along an average adult!  I quietly slipped out of the classroom lest someone associate me with my daugther's project!  I'm proud to say my slinking was unnecessary.  My daugther said that her game was played the most by the kids.  I guess she really could do it by herself!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A LIGHTER BLUE ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • I heard you're busier than usual. Let me know if I can help.
  • Good effort this year!! Happy Mother's Day (or Happy Birthday)!

Card 16 "Another Birthday"

Suggested Uses: Birthday

I love my birthday and have never been bothered by my age...at all.  I was always glad that I was becoming wiser with age and was accepting of the "changes" age was bestowing on me.  Except when it came to my 40th birthday.  For some reason that day I felt like I had crows feet the actual size of crows feet!  Although it was too conspicuous to walk around with big sunglasses in October, I felt like it.  And another Dibble card is born!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A LIGHTER BLUE ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Wine, cookies? Looks like a celebration! What time???
  • You may feel like Maxine, but you look like Audrey Hepburn!!
  • That means mine is right around the corner. Let's get together to commiserate!

Card 17 Girl Scout Camp

Suggested Uses: Friendship, Mother's Day

Chaperoning Girl Scout Camp was not a job that I readily volunteered for.  They had to seek me out to make me take on that responsibility!  One especially tiring year after being up every hour on the hour to take a girl to the bathroom which was housed separately from the bunkhouse...in a February snow storm...I think I make my point, Cheryl and I were having breakfast in the mess hall.  Cheryl looked around and was laughing at all the mom's who looked like they were made up for a cameo in Night of the Living Dead.  At that point we knew that a Dibble card had to be produced because at times you can either laugh or cry...choose laughter!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A MAGENTA ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • I wish quality time wasn't so exhausting!
  • You're a great mother. Happy Mother's Day.

Sometimes you can't help but compare your life to your neighbors.  But rest assured, your neighbor is thinking the same thing about your life.  The grass may be greener on the other side, but it still needs to be mowed!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A BRIGHT GREEN ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

Card 20 Get Well

Suggested Uses: Get Well, Thinking of You

There I was, alone with my two young daughters, battling the flu.  Now, when I say young I'm talking 10-years-old.  So in my suffering, I instructed them to make some soup for dinner and to make sure their homework was done.  Next thing I know my youngest sits down on the couch, and with a forlorn expression says "What are we going to do now?".  Her meaning was that she wasn't sure who was going to take care of her and the needs of the household.  Although not funny then, I do laugh when I think of it now!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A MAGENTA ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Don't let the entire household shut down. I'm here to help.
  • How many members does it take to run a household? Obviously one and you're out of commission! Let me know if I can help.

Card 21 "Perfection is overrated."

Suggested Uses: Birthday, I'm Sorry, Friendship

One spring I decided that there was definitely some female gene that was missing from my chemical make up.  I seem to be the only woman not concerned with how her garden/landscaping look.  So I decided that I wanted to fit in and do the perennial thing and I had a plan.  Well, after too much sweat and manual labor my garden didn't look much different from the plot that I had started with.  At that point I decided "perfection was overrated" and I returned the earth to its original state of being and enjoyed the rest of my summer...weed free!

THIS CARD COMES WITH A HOT PINK ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • Happy Belated Birthday!

Card 22 "We're here for you"

Suggested Uses: Thinking of You, Sympathy

Remember in pioneer times when a wagon train was faced with danger, they all circled the wagons?  I thought that women do the same thing when "one of their own" is facing a difficult time.  Only instead of a constenoga wagon, they're pulling radio flyer wagons!   This card doesn't say anything deep or preachy, just that your friends are there for you, whatever your needs.  I see this card being sent with a bouquet of flowers purchased by the group or a casserole for dinner.  Sometimes it's the small things that matter most.

THIS CARD COMES WITH A LAVENDAR ENVELOPE.

Inside the card you could write:

  • We know this is a difficult time. Thinking of you.
