BelatedBirthday Card


Another couple of eCards in the collection this month.  Today saw the launch of a belated birthday eCard - a fun little ditty sung by Eddie Croonier Jr., a good, old big band singer in the style of Frank, Dean, Sammy, et al (if only I could actually sing like them!).

Anyway, here's the link

I hope you enjoy it.

See you next time.

Thank You Card

It's been a while since my last post as I've been mega-busy with other cartooning and animation projects here at Daftoons Towers.

I have put up a selection of ecards over the past month or so.  Most of them have been adapted versions of the many winks I produced for Windows Live Messenger, but here's my latest, purpose built card - "The Thank You Guy" - a Thank You card that could be used to say thanks for a gift, or even to respond to someone who has sent you an ecard greeting.  Here's the link

I enjoyed creating this one as it gave me a chance to produce a fun little backing music track, as well as performing a silly voice.  I've already had a couple of people suggesting that it sounds a bit like the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz movie.  What do you think?  I wasn't aiming for that - actually, I took my inspiration from The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland.

I hope you like it.

To You We Sing Happy Birthday

I've been able to add quite a few new eCards recently, particularly over the Valentine's Day period.  I used to create a lot of content for in the Netherlands - winks, dynamic display pictures and so on for Windows Live Messenger.  I put together hundreds of animations for them.  Alas, Messenger has all but gone now and the nice people at Quebles have agreed to me reusing some of my content for 123greetings eCards.  I'll have to do a fair bit of adapting, but I'm thrilled to have the resource at my fingertips.

The latest eCard created from scratch is a little birthday ditty called "To You We Sing Happy Birthday" (see image above).  It features some characters that I've earmarked for a series, so I hope the public like them.  Here's where you can view and send the card from

Huge thanks to the very talented Alison Mitchell for her help with the vocal duties.
