A Card from a Friend

My dear friend Liz, who lives in Boise, is one of the most creative people I know. We worked together in the late 1990s, I as a writer/editor and she as a graphic design artist. It was her graphic design style that inspired me when I took up bookbinding and cardmaking as hobbies.

She sent me this hand-drawn card I wanted to share with you because it's so clean and simple and pretty.

Thanks, Liz!


  1. Wow! I assumed it was a stamp with stitching at the top and bottom of the image.
    She is super talented!

  2. Wow! What a wonderful work of art! LOVE her drawing and the shadowing is awesome! What a nice friend to send you a hand drawn card!

  3. What a lovely drawing in b&w. Perfect all by itself for a CAS card.

  4. It is indeed very pretty Susan. I love the little tea bag and the little something, looks like crumbs on the front. Thank you for sharing your friend's work, it's so nice of you. The paper is patterend too or am I imagining things...

    Kindly, Peggy

  5. What an elegantly simple card. The paper almost appears to be handmade.

  6. Just your style. Beautifully drawn. Thank you for sharing it!

  7. Oh my Oh my what talent! You can even tell the handle of the cup is probably gold, in real life.

    Thanks for sharing Liz. Probably no one else could have passed muster around here, we're so spoiled by getting to see your artistry every day, Susan. :-)


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
