The teal cover shows a striped circus tent with a seal out front twirling a polka-dot ball.
Open the card to a three-ring circus, with a lion or tiger leaping through a flaming hoop, a twirling acrobat, a tall Clown in a top hat walking on stilts, a baby elephant balancing on a ball, a lithe trapeze artist flying through the air, two more acrobats dancing through twirling hoops, and a wild bear. In front of all this activity, a very dapper turquoise seal wearing a red bow tie twirls a red polka-dot ball. No animals were harmed in this depiction!
This is a festive card for a child’s party, graduation, birthday, or to express admiration for a teacher, a nanny, a friend, or parent who manages the whole shebang and keeps on smiling. Acknowledge your project manager, event planner, or wedding director with this 3-ring thank you card.
Darling girl, when all else fails, join the circus.
Come one, come all.

Dark humor joke:
Jim and Janet from the circus go to an adoption agency.
The adoption officials express concern whether circus accommodations are suitable for a child, but the couple produces photographs of their luxurious, 15 metre long caravan, the back half of which is a beautifully equipped nursery.
“But what about education for your child if you are constantly on the move?”
“We have employed an Oxford don who will teach all the main subjects, plus IT skills and Mandarin Chinese.”
“And what about health?”
“Our full-time nanny is an expert in pediatric welfare and diet.”
Finally the agency officials are satisfied, and ask, “What age child are you looking for?”
“It doesn’t really matter,” Jim replies, “as long as it fits into the cannon.”
