Laus Deo, indeed, for He is the only one to whom such praise belongs.

"It is not a little pleasing, nor less wonderful to contemplate, that after two years' manoeuvring and undergoing the strangest vicissitudes, that perhaps ever attended any one contest since the creation, both armies are brought back to the very point they set out from, and that the offending party at the beginning is now reduced to the use of the spade and pickaxe for defence. The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations."

- George Washington August, 1778

Cheeky Little Buggar really comes from a place of fun. So many greetings cards are just plain boring and if it doesn’t make
you laugh then what’s the point right? With that perspective in mind we set out to create a range of cards that are not
conventional in any sense of the word and to make you chuckle, but be aware some are very rude and may offend.funny greeting cards
