Poem on the Back of Card:

“Sending a Rainbow”

If rainbows could be plucked from the sky,
tasting of berries, orange, lemon and lime,
a harvest of wonder to hold in your hand,
scented like fresh rain in springtime –

Little hummingbird mail carriers,
with their jeweled feathers,
would deliver letters with rainbows inside.

If rainbows could burst out of letters like love,
envelopes crammed with color from above,
I’d send you a kaleidoscope of care,
but never to fade –
Always there.

In memory of Great Aunt Julia McMurrough, (1936 – 2004)
a nun, poet and artist who “rainbowed” the world.

Eco Clearbags Compostable Sleeves

If you bought one of our cards in a brick and mortar store, it came in a protective clear sleeve made of plant-based polylactic acid (PLA) and is certified compostable and food safe (Eco Clearbags). In Northwest Arkansas where Ripples Greeting Cards are designed, you can compost these “bio plastic” sleeves through Food Loops in Rogers or drop off the sleeves at Ozark Natural Foods Co-op in Fayetteville where they will be sent to Food Loops for composting. This may not be available in your area, but you might find a commercial composting facility near you.
