just a note



I wanted to share some of my cards with everyone. These are three of my favorite "Happy Birthday" designs.



I've been drawing for about as long as I've been playing dress up. Possibly longer! I'm not sure which pastime is my favorite.



The first two cards are hand-drawn designs and the last one has handwritten text and flourishes. I cut out the flowers with little tiny detail scissors. It was tedious! It's been one of the few cards I've reproduced en mass, and I have to cut the flowers for each card. For some reason, I can't figure out how to reproduce things in a timely fashion. Printing is expensive and doesn't always work for my designs. Oh well, it just means all my cards are one of a kind :)

You made these cards yourself? What a talented lady you are! I can't believe you hand-cut all of those flowers for the last one... Such patience! But it was obviously worth the effort, the result is so lovely. Do you sell your cards anywhere?
