Pet Sympathy: new cat sympathy designs

Pet Sympathy: new designs for hand painted cat sympathy cards!

I have fallen in love with this cat silhouette on these cards…so much so that I went a little crazy a few weeks ago painting a series of different backgrounds.  All it takes to paint on all this lovely card stocks is start with a layer of Gesso.  The card stock is acid free so the painting will be lasting.  I had a lot of fun with these and have started on some other silhouettes to use in the future.  I think the next one will have angel wings:) What do you think?

Pet Sympathy Card

big frontHandmade card for loss of pet.

I am pleased with how this one turned out, what do you think?.  Death does not break the bond of love with our pets and I hope this card brings comfort to those grieving the loss of a beloved pet.

The front of the card reads…”Love…it is the shortest distance between two hearts.”

The inside reads…”May time heal your heart and memories comfort your soul.  With Sympathy”

Feel free to write to me if you have questions on any techniques I use to make my cards.  If you are interested in purchasing them, most of my cards are available at my ETSY Shop.  I do offer discounts for veterinarians and other pet professionals buying multiple cards at one time.

Rescue On!

WTF imprintSnarky Card

Ok, this one might be a little too snarky for some.  This is another new card in my “Sparky says” line.  Sometimes there are occasions when all we can say is “WTF?” and this card will make them smile.  The  inside of the card reads:  “sometimes that is all we can say…:”

What do you think of this one?

Foot in mouth card…

Here is another card from my Sparky says line…

We all have moments where something has slipped out of our mouths that we wished we would not have said.  This is a card for just those moments.

The inside of the card reads; “I can’t believe I said that..I am so sorry”

Snarky Cards

black bike imprintThis month I am launching a new line of cards.   I am really excited about these because the sketches for them have been in the works for a long time.  The line is called “Sparky says…”  Sparky is my 16 year old lab, he is a very expressive and terribly funny dog.  I have wanted to capture some of his personality in a creative way for awhile…these designs came about over time.  All of the cards are my own pencil drawings of Sparky’s expressiveness.  The line is going to be snarky…cards meant to make people laugh because Sparky has been making us laugh and smile for years.  I will be posting new designs all month…I would love feedback (even if you think some of them are a bit too snarky). The first two cards are below.

Rescue on!
