Greeting Card Campaign: 9-18 Kiss the Sky Day

Click on this link to download this card.

Today is Kiss the Sky Day, a celebration of a line of music practically everyone gets wrong. Famed rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix in 1966 had a hit single with "Purple Haze".  Most people hear the tag line as 'Scuse me while I kiss this guy!"

The words actually go,

Purple haze all in my brain.
Lately things just don't seem the same -

Actin' funny, but I don't know why;
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky.

Hendrix died at 27 years of age in London of an apparent drug abuse on September 18, 1970, thus the date of the holiday celebration.  So it's Kiss the Sky day.  Celebrate by sending your sweetie a Kiss the Sky Day card.

Just click on the caption below the picture of the avocado. The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs. Remember, instead of printing from Google Docs, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Download" and copy the file to your own computer.  Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you use and print the card from there. For some reason Google Docs doesn't handle fonts well, even though they are supposed to be embedded in the PDF document itself.

This is a top fold card, so when it prints, be sure to tell your printer it's in "portrait" format so you get the whole file. Flip it on the short side to print double-sided. This also flips the inside upside down from the outside when you print in portrait mode, so that, when you fold it over, the inside comes out rightside up.  If you're confused, I encourage you to give it a try with a practice sheet of paper.
