Handmade Cards

I wanted to do something special for my sister's birthday, so I decided to make her a card. In my college days, I worked in the theatre and sat through a number of presentations by people and organizations that rented the space. I remember hearing a person on stage share that he and his family always make cards rather than use another person's words in store-bought greeting cards. It's a wonderfully sincere idea. I hope to continue with this idea going forward.

Of course, it took me a long time to finish my stippling version of my sister's puppy, so the card was late. However, I enjoyed creating it because I find the stippling process very relaxing. While the finished version is above, below you'll see the inside, the original picture.

Update I've been trying hard to continue this act of making cards for people instead of buying them. Below is a couple Mother's Day cards (and the inside of one), another birthday card, and a thank you stippling of a bed and breakfast's dog Carson.
