Diamonds are a hard nut to crack.
I know (I know!) I am a week behind, but finally (finally!) I will reward your wait with my favorite face card so far. I have been working through face cards for the deck and it's taken longer than I expected....so many things to ponder! BUT I have finished the next one and s/he is a doozy (I will also play my catch up card Friday this week, so please don't fret). I present:
The King of Clubs!
The King of Clubs is rumored to be creative, but careless. Our King of Clubs rules youth, irresponsibility, musings, and the mind (rather than the body). As with our other Club cards the lightness of Air and the freedom of Summer are themes here. His swimsuit and the raw simplicity of the young lamb represent the qualities of our King.
Next up in the club family is our little friend number 3. The three of clubs is unpretentious. Three little fall leaves fall in a pile near our clubs and collect autumn sunshine for later.
I bet you thought I forgot! I did not. And I intend to stay on track as well. This week is the two of spades. What does a practical, thrifty girl like the queen need in twos? A pair of shoes! A pair of mary janes to be exact.
I know! I am all backwards! It's not even a Wednesday.....but catching up makes things a little wonky so please bear with me. Even though I shared with you a beautiful queen on Wednesday, I have another card that sets a precedent: The Ace of Clubs! The Ace is a great first card because it introduces the suit. (I know, you've already seen the queen, what can I say: she stole the show?)
Well, I'm behind one week already in my 52 deck of cards series! I will have to double up to catch up. To make it up to you I have made the first card a face card. A queen as a matter of fact. This Queen is youthful, but practical; she isn't fooling around nor is she anything but straightforward. You can trust her. I think. Or can you?
