New Greeting Cards

I finally made this blank greeting card out of the illustration I did from The Wish Trees giveaway post. I don't have any real personal stationary to use for everyday so this will be very handy.

You know how when you are an artist, and your friends and family expect that everything you give them must be handmade or with your art on them, especially greeting cards? Hey, sometimes I don't have time and have to pick up a Hallmark card! My mom seems to be disappointed when that happens though.
I've also put some of them in my shop. Its been seriously neglected but I hope to be back into it soon.

Super cute!

I too know the feeling of handmade-expectations, this is a good solution!

These look wonderful!

Handmade is great, but when there's no time I also have to stop by Hallmark for greeting cards. So much so that I have a rewards card with them. :)

Great cards, they are so bright and cheerful. And yes, I totally understand the pressure of all items/gifts/etc needing to be homemade... or better yet when going to a craft fair hearing the person with say "Oh you could do that!" funny, its meant to be a compliment but instead makes me feel like i haven't done enough with my art/time. =)

In my family, I get requests for graphic design (mostly from my mom).
Who knows what will happen when/if my art takes off. I try and at least create a unique Christmas card each year, but usually end up waiting too late. This year I am starting early.

super cute! I am lucky that I have many printed cards through clients that I just grab one from my stash, but
I have to make some too because you cannot get the same one over and over!!

You could make a great Halloween one with the images from your book too!!
