Note Cards

This is the "Backing" card that I put on the back of my Note Card Packets. There are 8 cards (2 of each scene) in each packet. A friend had requested a packet, and I just finished printing them. These are some of my personal favorites:
The Tulips were my Spring purchase a couple years ago and I thought they looked so pretty in that Crystal Vase. The Green-Shuttered window was sketched in Charleston, SC, and my Christmas Cactus (which does NOT bloom at Christmas???) was from 2010. The Crocuses coming up in the snow was a picture I saw in a magazine--however, as you can see below--my Aliums seem to be peeking through the snow...go figure :-)
I make Birthday Cards from some of my watercolor/sketches and send them to anyone in our Adult Bible Class who has a birthday. Also "get well" and "thinking of you" cards.
People seem to really love getting a hand-made card! (And I enjoy making them!) I call it my "Ministry."

It looks like you have put a lovely set of cards together. I'm sure they will bring a smile to the recipients faces.

Isn't it nice to pass on God's love through something that you love to do, too!

I love your ministry-I have been wanting to use my art to glorify God - I've thought of a series of pictures that would have scriptures and make notecards of them. Are you printing on your own printer or are you having them professionally done through a commercial printer?

Patti, I have a Hallmark 2010 Deluxe Card program where I design and make the cards using my own watercolors. I use Avery #8315 Note Card Blanks to print them on with my own printer (an Epson Stylus Photo R380). It's an OLD one--but it still works. I put 8 Note Cards in an Ultra Clear Sealable Bag that I get from "Light Impressions."
Hope that helps!
