1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment 14 Jun 2011
By Judi
I am very disappointed with this book. There were no words to make me smile! I was bored by it. Don't think there are any verses that I would actually use. I'd send the book back but it would cost me more postage than what the book is worth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 26 Feb 2011

I was very disappointed with this book. Many of the verses were too long, very few were suitable for the cards I make, and they had a clumsy, artificial feel to them. Can't say I reccommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rhyming verse. 23 July 2010
By Phil
Verified Purchase
I am allergic to rhyming messages on cards. They seem contrived and artificial.
The messages in the book are good but in common with such messages they lack sincerity. I would paraphrase them when using them so as to make them more sincere.

2.0 out of 5 stars I returned it ! 1 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
In my opinion, it under-rated my intelligence - I was not impressed by any of the verses - they were inept and sometimes verged on being vulgar - certainly not the words I would put in my cards by any stretch of the imagination ..............

As an older cross-stitcher the words are not really suitable for my card receiving friends but there are some exceptions. It is not used as much as some of my other purchases.
