upcycled burlap from coffee bags for cards

valentine's day is close and this painted burlap heart should brighten someone's mailbox!
the winter cold & flu season is brutal so here's a band aid get well card, again with painted burlap
if you can't be there to buy the birthday person a cone in person ... here's a fun one to send!

upcycled snarky card

looking to do a snarky line and starting with this to describe our feelings after UO lost last night. the words are hand done on a venetian blind and the cartoon bubble makes it super fun! hope your day is great and let me know if you have any fun things for a snarky line!

happy new year and product redevelopment!

so the new year is bringing a burst of creativity and potential redesign of my cards. although these pieces aren't officially on a card yet i love them! i found some old paint sample books, an old stamp set, and of course the typewriter and voila! here are some new ideas! i am predicting the use of old things such as burlap, paint samples, and other hardware will soon be gracing clothespin cards!
here are other new designs! the heart on the top right sample is cut out of an old venetian blind! loving the upcycling! hope you are celebrating 2011 with some new creativity!
