Teapot Note Cards

I just added these to my Artfire store. These were printed from an original watercolor that I did last year. I have a thing for teapots and I actually have a small collection that always serves as great inspiration

Recycle Old Note Cards To Make New Cards

There's a lot of talk about how much trash we've all been sending to our dumps and landfills, so it made me think about ways to recycle some of the old note cards and note papers that I have lying around. Sure they've been used and written on, but the the images on the front are usually still in good shape -- so why waste them?

For this card I trimmed the front of an old note card that a friend had sent to me awhile back down to size, matted it out with red card stock, and mounted it onto the front of a card blank. Now it's been up cycled and it's ready to go in the mail once again.
