Surprise Mail

About two weeks ago I received a birthday card from my dear cousin.  It was a wonderful surprise to see  a color copy of one of her first collages on the card.  I know my photo can  not give this card justice.  Thank you Rinda,  I absolutely love it and plan on framing the card. You can view Rinda's blog at www.gallorganico.blogspot.com

To tell you the truth,  I  never thought of printing my work on cards.  It's a great idea!  I'm curious to know if anyone else has printed their work on cards.  Your comments and links are welcomed.  I would love to see your art work.

So glad you received it and liked it! I bet photos of your stained glass work would make beautiful cards.

What a beautiful card and what a fun way to remember beautiful artwork. I haven't ever done it, but just received a card from friends where their 14 year old daughter had done a pencil drawing of a cat hanging from a branch and they had cards. Where can you get them made?

What a lovely surprise! No I have never thought of putting a copy of my art on a card but a great idea!

What a special card, a wonderful surprise! Nope, I've never, but know others who have.

I have copied large pieces to use as background paper, where the original would have been too textured for what I wanted it for. Okay, no, that's not nearly the same thing!!
