This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
These are congratulate-a-graduate cards for use with Moghughson's Postal System Mod with which your sims can bother their friends in your neighbourhood. Sims will receive a small positive boost to their friendship levels when they read the card. I made several sets of these cards back in Spring 2010 and meant to finish these particular cards off and upload them then but, y'know, life ...

This is my fifth set of recolours for this mod. As before, I claim no particular artistic talent - the images came off the net, all I did was paste them in the package file. Yeah, well, I'm understating things a bit as I fiddled about and there is some creative input on my part (it's fun to do) but let's not go mad here, eh?

Each card has its own verse, this time aphorisms on education by various more or less prominent persons. The tone of the inscriptions isn't too serious: I'm English, I don't do slushy.

The selection of cards I am choosing to make may seem random and you'd be right. Basically, of the options offered by Moghughson, I am making cards for those which I thought I, myself, might use most. Look out for other card makers - there are several out there - and y'never know, I might post some more.

You will need the postal system by MogHughson which you can find here. That thread also contains all information about how to use these cards. You can even make your cards yourself with different categories.

Additional Credits:
The usual suspects: the creators of SimPE and tutorial writers and all the people who share information about how to mod the game. All those people, in other words, who make playing around with the game possible. Also, in particular, in this case, Moghughson (a terrific modder of the game by anyone's standards).
