Ruthie's Story (as seen on the back of the card):
At 10, Ruthie sees the world through an artistic, imaginative eye, even as a toddler, her artwork invited viewers in for a second glance. Curious and soulful, insightful and expressive, self-aware and wise, she often can be found in creative pursuits. On any given day, you’ll find her writing a poem, reading, biking, swimming, performing in community theater, playing the piano and clarinet, singing, concocting gluten- and dairy-free recipes, playing with friends, painting with watercolors or philosophizing about life. While she aspires to become a writer/illustrator or an occupational, physical, or speech therapist, her predominant life dream is to swim with dolphins.

2007 PACER Greeting Cards are still available!
