welcome to in a card's blog...

i know that "cute" is not a word typically used to describe good design, but in my world, it is. if it's your first reaction to say, "aww... how cute!" then it must be just that! "C-U-T-E." and i'm talking about so incredibly, ridiculously cute that the most masculine of men will even say those three words without thinking twice about it.

and so that is what i hope to share with you on my blog...

a combination of really unique ideas, simple thoughts that come randomly into my mind, along with "cute" designs that i've designed or come across.

"that's what she said!"

well actually, that's what they said!  

more quotable cards just added to the "in a card" Etsy shop.

the possible, impossible & miracles

i love this...

possible can be done immediately
we're already working on the impossible
but please allow 48 hours for miracles

i think this saying would make for a great backdrop for the studio or better yet, for the front door entrance!

fortune & love

came across this lovely quote today and thought i'd share...

a quote by ovid:

"fortune and love favor the brave."

i think it makes for a great mantra!

single card draw

i turned my 3 card casino invite into a single, more economical, version for a soon to be 21-year-old, hayley.  i was able to fit all the party info on one card but still keep the small size of the invitation so it doesn't lose it's almost life like version of an actual playing card.

feel free to contact me if you are interested in purchasing these invitations.

forever cherry blossoms

i love postage stamps!  however, i'm not a collector of them.  i actually like to use my stamps and i'm always buying the prettiest ones currently available, whether at the local post office or online at usps.com.

every once in a while, i fall in love with an absolutely beautiful design and i pretty much stock up until they run out.

my current favorite is this cherry blossom centennial forever stamp.
maybe it's the pink or maybe it's the cherry blossoms, but either way, these stamps go very well with all my stationery goods.

little love nest is growing

i had a request recently for my "little love nest invitation" to be turned into a "we're expecting" announcement.  a quick horizontal layout adjustment and you've got these adorable little announcements...

a fun way to announce a new baby is on the way

my simplewear shop has been super busy lately. with mother's day around the corner, i've had lots of requests for my "loved and spoiled by" onesie to help announce a new pregnancy. these onesies will surely surprise all the soon-to-be grandparents as well as the soon-to-be aunties and uncles.

i've even had a custom request for a "i heart grandma & grandpa" based on my "i heart mom" and "i heart dad" designs.
i love the little addition of "coming soon december 2012" on this onesie. it makes the onesie that much more custom and special.
