Painted Cards

I've found that I enjoy making painted greeting cards. I love receiving beautiful cards in the post from folks. They are lovely reminders that someone was thinking of me when I didn't expect it. It puts into perspective that perhaps at some moment when I was having a particularly crummy day, somewhere in the world someone was sitting at a table writing a lovely card and pouring their memories of our friendship into it. How wonderful! Perhaps the next time I have a crummy day, I'll think to myself that someone might be thinking of me...

I like to do this for others as well. That is why these cards were so fun to make. The person who commissioned these cards ended up buying them all because she wanted to send one each month to her friend who is getting married in 5 months. So thoughtful!
