Etsy Greetings

I am now a proud member of Etsy Greetings. This is a group of independent card artists that sell their handcrafted creations on Etsy. Etsy is the online place to go when you want to buy handmade arts and crafts. You can my shop link to the right.

But, what I really want to tell you about today is that Etsy Greetings is having a "Welcome Baby" promotion at:

And I am happy to say that I am a part of this latest promotion! Here is my creation:

If you have a moment, please be sure to visit our promotion page!


The Winner is.......

Sarcastj, who is also known as Jay from Loopy4ewe! Congratulations!

And here is a picture of the prize so far:

I say "so far", as I just may tuck in a few extras. This photo below is of the cards that can be customized. For example "Happy Birthday", "Hi!", "Thank You". I'll add the sentiment by including a block of computer wordart.

Thank you to those who did drop in and took part in my first contest. And you just may see this happening again here, so please visit when you get a chance!



As I sat down in my studio this morning, the sun was shining, and I was inspired by this sight....

And this.....

That's my stash of paper flowers and the second is what I have on the corner of my desk by the window. I've inherited a love of flowers from my Mom and it shows in my work. I often reach for the paper or silk flowers for embellishing the cards just after I've laid the foundation with cardstock and paper.

And to just to make the morning even more perfect....a steaming hot cup of coffee!

Hope you are having a Fabulous Day!

A peek at the Prize(#2)

Okay, as promised, here's another peek at the Grab Bag prize! If I get a chance, I will post yet another Peek later today. Stay tuned!


A peek at the prize (#1)

Whoops! I guess I'm a little late posting the first picture, but here is one item that will go into the GRAB BAG that I'll be giving to the winner of the draw mentioned in my previous post.

This one features some of my favourite materials: pretty patterned paper, ribbon, flowers and a bit of bling with the clear sparkly jewel.

Be sure to stop in tomorrow for another peek!


A little A.H.D. contest giveaway

Okay, just for some fun, I want to give away some product. So, leave a comment on this post, answer my trivia questions, and you'll be entered to win a GRAB BAG of my products. And just for incentive, I will post a picture sometime over the next days to show you what's in it, starting tomorrow.

Comments linked to this post until Friday 05.25.07 will be entered into the draw, to take place on Monday morning 05.28.07. Please be sure to check back on Monday afternoon (after 12pm PST).

Okay, so here are the questions that can be answered just by digging around my blog(s), hint, hint.

1) What is the name of my other blog?
2) On what date did I join Etsy?
3) What did I make with Playdoh on May 17th?

Good luck!


Father's Day

Dad's day is coming next. See my Etsy store for my newest Accordian Folded Card / Mini Album! It's sure to bring tears to even the most stoic of Dad's.
It can be used solely as a greeting card, but to really make it a personal gift, you can add little pictures of you and good 'ol Dad. And it looks great on display. Please click on the link to the right to get a better look!


Custom Orders and a Sale

Just wanted to share the happiness I feel for this business! And if I were more outgoing...I'd probably be dancing around right now.

I've just received my 3rd custom order this week, and it's only Wednesday! It feels so good when my design work gets acknowledgement like this. 1 has been for a quantity order of my notecards, and 2 more for personalized journals. And since I love paper art, I'm more than happy to lose a few zzzzz's at night to get these orders filled.

This is so great, that I want to celebrate by offering a sale on my Etsy site!

From today until May 21st, 2007 I am offering a discount of 10-15%, depending on how many items you buy. See the link at the right sidebar for more info.


Kid's Birthday Cards

A friend recently pointed out that she never finds Birthday cards for kids, here on my site. So, I thought that maybe it's time that I do some up! I even made a few extra for myself to keep on hand. Here's a few of the more boy-ish ones:
Price: $3.00 Cdn each, comes with a white envelope.
Shipping via Canada Post lettermail service: $0.55 per card


Note Card Sets

These Note Cards Sets have just been added to my Etsy store. They are blank inside and sized 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Very pretty, and practical, since they would be great for almost any occasion!

If you'd like to order direct, or want them in different colours, just send me an email at amiedesigns@yahoo.ca .
Set of 2 Notecards: $3.95US or $4.50 Cdn.
