New Year New Design

2017 looks like it will be a great year. I’m feeling good and getting motivated making bunches of new cards. Back in October I was able to help crew the 2016 Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and my husband Larry walked it. This year we will both do it again. It’s a great organization and an amazing experience. Read about my husband’s experience here.

This year I am focused on box sets of the most popular card types. Thank Yous, Friendship, Christmas and maybe a few Valentines. I’ll also be making plenty of Birthday Cards, Thanksgiving and my favorite, Halloween.

Looking for a custom card? Drop me a note here on the contact page.

For all of 2017, all box sets sold directly will benefit the Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and our team, Save the Peaches. We will donate 1/2 of the sale price to the team for every set sold. A special order page will be setup shortly. This donation applies to direct sales of box set cards only. Any sales through third party sellers are not part of this special offer.

The Workbench is Empty this week

I didn’t get into the work room this week so the work bench is empty. I did get my pain infusion therapy this week. They increased my dosage and I do feel a whole lot better. I did get to go to a card making class Thursday night it was fun I think. Here’s a picture of the card I made.

I don’t even remember making this card but it sure is pretty. Thanks to my best friend Rita for taking me and taking care of me while we were there. BTW: Rita, you’re going to have to show me how to make this card again. Thursday night is real foggy.

I got all my little boo bags filled up for all the little ghosts and goblins for Halloween here’s some pictures.

That’s all for this week. I am feeling a lot better now that I got the infusion so look for great things this coming week from the Card Doc’s workbench.

Busy Busy Card Making Time

It’s been a busy week here at the Card Doc. We’re getting ready for the Marietta Craft Fair the 4th of July in Marietta Ga. and I’ve been making cards like a mad woman this Memorial Day weekend. My studio photographer dug out the 4th of July decorations and had fun with the newest batch of cards. They are all bright and festive cards with a definite summer flair to them. If you’d like to purchase any of our hand made cards contact us directly, leave a message or comment or visit our face book page.  Better yet stop by and see us at the Marietta Craft Fair at the Square in Marietta on the 4th of July.

This card goes great with the gift bag below.

Something for that special friend you’ve known all your life.

It’s a tag and a card in one extra heavy Kraft envelope with a tie-on string. Great for those hard to wrap gifts for mom or dad.

Nothing says fun in the sun quite like flying a kite. Great card for that special summer time birthday.

IMG_1027187

That’s it for now. These increase the inventory about 50 cards. I can’t, won’t and don’t, just make one. :-). there are 5-10 of each available.  See you in Marietta July 4th.
