I always like making greeting cards by hand, I actually like giving as many personalized things as possible because you can make them to suit the person that you're giving them to. It's something that I've done since I was in grade school . For this first card, I actually used embroidery thread with folded together and trimmed washi tape to make the cute little bunting. I then pulled out my old embossing label maker and punched out the greeting.
This next card was made for a friend's new home. I decided to use water-proof pens to draw the cute little house and then colored the image in using water based markers and water color paints.

I don't often share my drawings because It's a skill that I'd like very much to improve upon. I was in a cafe in Banff a couple weekends ago with a friend enjoying the beautiful mountains around us and just playing in my sketchbook.
This idea of the deer with flowers in it's antlers is not my own (so I cannot take credit for it) I saw the drawing online and decided to do a study of it on my own. A really great way to develop a skill is to replicate the work of artists that you love, but to remember to use those pieces only for learning purposes and not to go on and sell the work as your own.
