Mary Lou

These are lovely.

I tend to take the best part of less-than-perfect paintings and glue them to blank card stock, rather than paint directly on the card.  Always afraid I will mess up the card.

Regardless, people love to get the hand-painted cards.  I have not bought a store-bought card in 6 years. (Sorry, Hallmark!)

Keep at it.  You will make lots of people happy.

That is such a good idea Mea.   I have a lot of not so good paintings here that can be used.    :thankyou:

These are my latest greeting cards.   Fun to do and quick art when I find a few moments for myself.


The ones I have sent have been well received.

You have been busy, Mary Lou,  with lovely results. 😊

A pack of 4 cards, with a folded paper insert to write on, prettily packed, makes a wonderful gift for someone special. Christmas is coming up 😉

I have been making Christmas cards to use for my family and some friends.  Here are a few that I have made. These are fun to do when I need to play with some art.

I did the same many moons ago  :clap: :clap: :clap:  When my younger brother John got married I scripted every single wedding invitation in calligraphy by hand, even the postal addresses on the envelopes.  :eek:
