Greeting Cards & Animated Ecards

Back in the year 2000, Jacquie Lawson, an English artist living in the picturesque village of Lurgashall in Southern England, created an animated Christmas card featuring her dog and cats, and her 15th-century cottage, and sent it to a few friends for their amusement. Those friends sent the ecard to others, and within weeks Jacquie was inundated with requests from all over the world to design more. In February 2002 she teamed up with a few friends and family members to create jacquielawson. com.

Over the years the collection has grown to over 400 ecards, each one showing a unique degree of artistry and attention to detail rarely seen in animated cards. Even the music is composed and arranged specially for each one! We now have a range of birthday cards, Christmas ecards, thank you ecards, and so on, featuring dogs, cats, teddy bears, flowers, and many other subjects.

A modest yearly membership fee gives you access to the entire range of online greeting cards and allows you to send as many greetings as you like. You can even get a further discount by joining for two years!

We hope you enjoy browsing our animated greetings, and if you’re not already a member, we hope you’ll consider joining us and sharing Jacquie’s delightful animations with your friends and family. And for a special pre-Christmas gift, check out our animated Advent Calendars.

Behind the Scenes

Each card we make takes anything from a few weeks to several months to complete. Many of the elements of the animation are actually painted by hand (using real paint, brushes and paper!) because the textures and colours achieved that way are so much more attractive than the electronic equivalent. These paintings are then scanned into electronic form, and the laborious process of animation starts. Finally, the music is created to accent or complement the animation.

Every so often we’ll be giving you a more detailed insight into what the team has been up to. Read the latest news now!

Applying for healthcare cover abroad (GHIC and EHIC)

There are 2 types of cover available.

You can apply for either:

  • a UK Global Health Insurance Card (UK GHIC)
  • a UK European Health Insurance Card (UK EHIC), if you have rights under the Withdrawal Agreement

Find out more about the Withdrawal Agreement on GOV.UK

For most people, the UK Global Health Insurance Card (UK GHIC) replaces the existing European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for new applications.

A UK GHIC and new UK EHIC are free of charge. Beware of unofficial websites, they may charge you a fee to apply.


Before going abroad, make sure you check the latest COVID-19 travel guidance on GOV.UK.

If you have an existing EHIC

If you have an existing EHIC, it will remain valid until the expiry date on the card.

You can apply for a new card up to 6 months before your current card expires.


It’s currently taking longer than usual to process new UK EHIC and GHIC applications due to high demand. We’re working to resolve this and will process all applications as soon as possible.

If you need emergency treatment while you’re visiting another country and haven’t received your card, you can apply for a Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC).

How to use your card

You can use your card to access medically necessary state-provided healthcare when you’re visiting an EU country.

Medically necessary healthcare means healthcare that cannot reasonably wait until you come back to the UK. Whether treatment is necessary is decided by the healthcare provider in the country you’re visiting.

Medically necessary healthcare includes things like:

  • emergency treatment and visits to A&E
  • treatment for a long-term or pre-existing medical condition
  • routine medical care for pre-existing conditions that need monitoring
  • routine maternity care, as long as you’re not going abroad to give birth
  • oxygen therapy and kidney dialysis

You’ll need to pre-arrange some treatments with the relevant healthcare provider in the country you’re visiting – for example, kidney dialysis or chemotherapy.

Check the Foreign Office country guides on GOV.UK for information on how to access treatment in the country you’re visiting

Not all state healthcare is free in the EU and you may have to pay for services that you would get for free on the NHS.


Your EHIC or GHIC is not a substitute for travel insurance. It may not cover all health costs and never covers repatriation costs. Make sure you have travel insurance as well as your card.

Coverage for quarantine hotels in the EU

Some EU countries require foreign visitors, including UK residents, to stay in quarantine hotels if they either:

  • test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and have no or mild symptoms
  • are close contacts of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

The costs of quarantine hotels are not covered by an EHIC or GHIC, as the UK considers these hotels to be a public health measure, not medically necessary state-provided healthcare.

If you need medical treatment while staying at a quarantine hotel, the UK Government will fund treatment as usual for UK residents or insured individuals. Use your EHIC or GHIC card, or contact the NHS Business Services Authority to receive a Provisional Replacement Certificate if you do not have a valid card.

EHIC has only ever covered emergency and necessary healthcare costs, so it is always recommended that you take out comprehensive travel insurance, including health cover, when you travel abroad.

If you’re abroad and do not have your card with you

You can get a Provisional Replacement Certificate (PRC) to prove your entitlement to medically necessary healthcare if you travel to Europe without your existing EHIC, UK GHIC or new UK EHIC and need treatment during your visit.

If you need a PRC outside opening hours, you should call as soon as possible the next working day.

The PRC will give you the same cover as an existing EHIC, UK GHIC or new UK EHIC until you return home.

When calling for a PRC, you’ll need to give:

  • your National Insurance number
  • your name
  • your address
  • your date of birth
  • the name of the treatment facility
  • the email address for the specific department of the organisation providing your treatment

To apply for a PRC contact NHS Overseas Healthcare Services.

Someone else can apply for a PRC on your behalf.

Where you can use your card

You can use a UK GHIC or existing EHIC while visiting:

A UK GHIC may become valid in more countries in the future. Check this page before you travel.

  • a UK State Pensioner or are receiving some other exportable benefits and you’ve been living in the Republic of Ireland since before 1 January 2021

If you live in Ireland and think you’re eligible for a UK EHIC you cannot currently apply online and need to contact NHS Overseas Healthcare Services.

Applying for family members

Every family member needs their own card. You can add a spouse, civil partner, durable partner and children to your application when you apply. You must enter your own details first and apply for any additional cards when prompted.

If you’ve already completed your application and wish to add additional family members you’ll need to contact NHS Overseas Healthcare Services. You should provide us with your reference number, name, date of birth and address so we can access your record.

Students studying in the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, or Switzerland

If you normally live in the UK and have been studying in the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland since before 1 January 2021, you may be eligible for a new UK Student EHIC for use in the EU and your country of study.

You will not be able to use this card for treatment in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland unless one of these countries is your country of study.

If you started your course after 1 January 2021, or you’re planning to study in an EU country, you’ll need to apply for a Student GHIC.

You can use the Student GHIC in the EU and your country of study, but not yet in Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland.

To apply you’ll need a letter from your university or college showing:

  • the name and address of the UK educational institution if you’re travelling as part of your course

If you’re an EU national ordinarily resident in the UK, but studying in the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein you may be entitled to a new UK EHIC or UK GHIC.

If you hold a UK-issued A1

If you work in the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein and have a UK-issued A1 document you may be entitled to a new UK EHIC or UK GHIC.

If you’re an au pair or nanny

If you’re a UK or Irish national who usually lives in the UK permanently and you’re going to work as an au pair or nanny in an EU country, you can apply for a UK GHIC.

Chen and Ibrahim/Teixeira carers

If you’re an adult carer of a child who is from the EU, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland, but you’re not from any of these countries or from the UK or Ireland, you may be eligible to apply for a new UK EHIC for yourself and for any other children you have who are not nationals of these countries.

You cannot apply if your right to reside in the UK is derived from your caring for a British citizen (Zambrano carer).

Dependent grandparents and grandchildren

You can add a grandchild to your new UK EHIC application if they’re a non-UK national, are a national of the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein and are one of the following:

  • under 18, living in the UK and were born before 1 Jan 2021
  • older than 18 but born on or after 1 January 2000, and arrived in the UK after 31 December 2020
  • older than 18, born before 1 January 2000, arrived in the UK after 31 December 2020, and are dependent on you

You can add a parent or grandparent to your new UK EHIC application if they’re dependent on you or your partner. Their relationship with you must have begun before 1 Jan 2021, they must live with you and also:

  • be a non-UK national,
  • be a national of the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein
  • they must have arrived in the UK after 31 December 2020

If they’re a national of any other country, they can be added if they have settled or pre-settled status under the European Union Settlement Scheme (EUSS). If they do not have settled or pre-settled status, they can be added if their relationship with you began before 1 January 2021.

Claiming a refund

Depending on the country you visit you may be expected to pay all or part of your bill upfront and then claim a refund afterwards.

Some countries ask patients to pay a contribution towards the cost of their care, such as for prescription costs. This is known as a co-payment or patient share.

You can claim back the difference between the total bill and the co-payment, but the actual co-payment is not refundable.

Keep all receipts and any paperwork. You or your insurance company may need them if you’re applying for a refund.

What to do if you believe your existing EHIC, UK GHIC or new UK EHIC has been wrongly rejected

If you believe that your UK GHIC, new UK EHIC or existing EHIC has been wrongly rejected by a hospital or other healthcare provider in the country you’re visiting, you should try and resolve the issue with them.

Explain that the card entitles the holder to necessary healthcare. It may be useful to direct them to the European Commission’s EHIC webpage, which provides images of all valid UK-issued EHICs and the UK GHIC.

If you need more help, contact NHS Overseas Healthcare Services. They can give you advice on what to do.

What to do if you think you’ve been incorrectly charged for medical treatment by an EU Member State

It’s important that you keep documents relating to your treatment. The Overseas Healthcare Services at the NHSBSA may ask you for more information to check your eligibility and the cost of the treatment you had. This could include:

  • receipts or invoices relating to treatment
  • confirmation of payments made to healthcare institutions
  • documents relating to insurance cover if your insurer paid for treatment
  • discharge documents

They’ll look at your claim to decide whether you were charged when you should have been covered. If they determine that your treatment should have been covered by the UK GHIC, new UK EHIC or existing EHIC, they’ll reimburse you or your insurer for the costs of treatment which are covered by your card. This may not include the full cost of treatment.

You can contact NHS Overseas Healthcare Services.

Best Sites for E Cards

Even pre-lockdown, written communications were already inching towards a post postal service world. Now, e-cards have never been so vital. We all need a little reminder right now that those we can’t meet in person are thinking of us, and us of them. Plus, of course, it’s environmentally friendly, instant and totally cheering. So go on, tell other isolating souls how much you can’t wait to see them on the other side with these digital cards. Here’s how using the following, the best UK ecard sites.

Paperless Post

One of our all-time favourites. What event hasn’t been enhanced by the addition of a beautiful Paperless Post invite winging its way into your inbox? The templates are to die for, the first batch of invites (12 at last glance) are free and the effort is minimal – need we say more?

Some E-Cards


Another brilliant addition to the e-card market, this site is a well-designed paragon of virtue dedicated to finding you the perfect stationary. Whether it’s a humorous card to win you some brownie points, or a personalised declaration of love – it’s all here.


Punchbowl offers a beautiful selection of cards for just about every occasion you could dream up. Want to acknowledge a beloved teacher in lockdown? You can do that. Celebrating Passover? Yup. Graduation, Mardi Gras, Diwali and even – topically – ‘stay safe’ cards are available. They’re customisable and you can send them to individuals or groups. Go, cheer up someone’s day.


One of the pioneers of animated e-cards, it’s safe to say JibJab is up there with the best. Their ‘Starring You!’ animated video cards include the seasonal favourite ‘Elf Yourself’ (vigorously shared at Christmas) but there are heaps of Valentine themed ones too such as the hilarious ‘Shakespearian Valentine’, a Grease video card you can personalise with your faces, and – for the anti-Valentiner – ‘Chocolates for yourself’ – a laughter inducing alternative.

Jaquie Lawson

Jacquie Lawson is a bastion of the e-card industry. The animated offerings are painted by hand and sometimes takes months to finish. The designs are artistic, elegant (even moving) and won’t offend in the slightest.


Are your friends the types who would scoff at anything even approaching heartfelt sentiment? Then Wrongcards is the e-card purveyor for you. For example, this week’s featured missive shows five women in WWII wearing gas masks and reads: ‘Thank you for coming into work and giving us all coronavirus while bravely showing what a trooper you are.’ You get the picture. There are all manner of categories for irreverent ‘well wishing’, including even sympathy cards (although you’d have to know your friend was truly dark of heart for that one though’). As they say, if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry.

90,000 UK map in English

If you are well versed in geography, then it will not be difficult for you to easily describe the position of the UK on a map in English. And if not, then you can always use our topic, which will guide you around the country from south to north, and from east to west.

While studying a map of England in English, the only thing to do is memorize a lot of names. Seas, mountains, cities, capitals and rivers can be difficult. But don’t worry, you can! In our article you will find the most significant objects.

So, best of all, when you start reading our topic, take a look at what the map of Great Britain looks like in English.And after reading each sentence, find what it is about. This will help you remember all the information faster.

Look at the map. You can see that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is situated on 1 the Isles 2 . They are called the British Isles 3 There are more than 5000 small islands there. Two of them are the biggest: Great Britain and Ireland . We know that the UK consists of 4 countries: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. England, Scotland and Northern Ireland are situated on the largest island which is called Great Britain.

90,000 Telegraph: EU citizens banned from entering UK with ID cards instead of passports – Society

LONDON, 8 January. / TASS /. Citizens of EU countries from October this year will lose the right to enter the UK by presenting national ID-cards instead of passports. This was reported on Friday by the Daily Telegraph newspaper, citing a source in the UK Home Office.

According to the interlocutor of the publication, this step, which was announced a few years ago by the British authorities, is due to the fact that counterfeit European ID-cards are often used by criminals, illegal migrants and terrorists. It is known that the perpetrators of the attacks in Paris and Brussels airport were in possession of high-quality fake IDs of EU citizens.

“These documents are among the most unreliable among those presented at the border, and are associated with almost the largest number of violations. We also know that they are used by organized criminal groups,” a British Interior Ministry spokesman told the Daily Telegraph.

Every year, the British authorities mark thousands of attempts to enter the kingdom using false documents. According to the newspaper, citizens of Albania and Ukraine are most often caught using fake Italian or Greek ID-cards.These documents are supplied to illegal migrants by criminal organizations specializing in the illegal transportation of people across state borders.

As noted in the report of the EU External Borders Agency Frontex, in recent years, both the number of fake IDs circulating in the community and the quality of counterfeits have increased significantly.

UK left the EU on the night of 1 February 2020. On 1 January 2021, the post-Brexit transition period expired, during which the United Kingdom was subject to all European regulations, including intra-community movement rules.Now citizens of the EU, EEA countries and Switzerland need visas in order to stay in the UK for more than six months. The UK has also banned EU residents who have previously been sentenced to prison terms of one year or more from entering the kingdom.

90,000 UK Visa and Immigration Office has launched a mobile application to replace Biometric Resident Cards in the UK

In recent months, there has been a spike in the number of applications to replace Biometric Resident Cards (“BCRs”). The rise in the number of applicants, in turn, has led to a shortage of free appointments at the UK Visa and Citizenship Application Service (“UKVCAS”) centers.

In response to increased demand, UKVCAS launched the IDV mobile identity verification application on 23 April 2021 for applicants seeking a replacement RBB. The app can be easily downloaded to most mobile devices and then go through the identity verification process and take a biometric face photo using the app. The IDV App is a simplified alternative for UK applicants.Should the UK Visa and Immigration Office require additional information, the agency may ask the applicant to attend the appointment to provide biometric data. Please note that submitting an application using the IDV App does not speed up the processing time for your application.

Applicants seeking replacement RBBs from outside the UK will be issued inserts for a period of 30 days. The sticking is done in the applicant’s passport and gives permission to enter the UK within a 30-day period. The applicant must enter the UK within the time frame shown in the box. After entering the country, the applicant is required to apply for a replacement RBB.
