Whenever I get the chance I like to make sets of note cards that anyone can use for any occasion. They are great to have on hand for writing quick notes, 'thank yous', or just for keeping in touch the old fashioned way.
I like the graphic elements of the paper that I used for the band on this one, as well as the horizontal lines on the card blank.

Know someone who's not feeling well? Why not brighten their day with a handmade card? I kept this one simple using torn embossed paper, a dimensional butterfly sticker, and a stamped sentiment. Simple, to the point, and sure to brighten someone's day.

Just added this card to the Etsy store. Christmas will be here any minute, so I figured that I'd better get started listing some new cards for the season.

I'm in the studio again and back to work trying to get back into the swing of things. I've been working on some new cards for Etsy and this is one of them.
Friends are truly the flowers in life's garden, and if you're fortunate enough to have a great friend in your life, then here's the perfect card for hailing that friendship.
I love the bold stripes on this one... vibrant, colorful, and making a statement.

Flat cards are a nice way to say 'thank you'. I made this one by layering coordinating paper on top of brown card stock that I'd embossed 'thank you' on the bottom of, and added a dimensional flower sticker on top. I matched it with a really cool envelope and now you get to say thank you with a little pizazz...

I call this one the 'Funky Flower' note card, not perfect but you get the picture... I just listed it on Etsy. It's done in acrylic on watercolor paper, trimmed and matted with a complimentary paper, and mounted onto the front of the note card.

It's been a while since I made one of these mixed media art cards for my Etsy shop. I used some torn handmade paper in the background, and decorative floral paper and fabric for her outfit. Lots of fun to make... I think I'll have to make a few more.

I'm still in the love mode. I'm not much of a stamper, but I really liked this one because of the love sentiments that it conveys. After stamping I added the heart that's painted on a torn section of handmade paper. Keeping it simple as usual...

With Valentine's Day approaching I'm seeing hearts everywhere. I liked this paper because the hearts come together to make flowers, and I thought that it would be a pretty way to send some love. I cut a simple strip of red paper for the band and added the 'Hugs and Kisses' sticker on top as added sentiments.
