Birthday cards

With September fast approaching, I thought that it was time to show you some of the Birthday cards I have found on the internet. Why September, well more people have their birthday in September than any other month of the year. Weather this is animal instinct to have young when food is most bountiful or because of all the parties over the holidays and New Year, I do not know anyway lets look at some cards.

Artist’s spotlight

This months the artist’s spotlight falls upon Batkei, an artist from Japan. Their unique style is very appealing but do not take my word for it, have a look for your self.


Batkei Art


Hello, cat lovers!

Yes, I am cat lover too. I draw the black cat as always. 
This black cat has name. Whim. His name is Whim. He is main character. Sometimes he would be a little kitty, sometimes he would be a adult cat. Cute, activity, naughty, and wild. As an ordinary house cat, as the human child. Rascal, play with the ball or his friend. Ride a bicycle and car, travel, be a ninja, etc etc...
Anyway, he is cute as your cat!!

Coloring books for inspiration


Sometimes it is a mystery where you get inspiration from but trying to force it hardly ever works. However, taking a break from making greeting cards and relaxing can be a great boost to your creative energy. Doing something else creative can be a big help and for me that is sometimes completing a coloring book like the one below.

Why not give it a go, not only will the down time give your greeting card making batteries a chance to recharge, you may also gain inspiration from the images or even the color selection that you use in the book.


Secret Garden: An InkyTreasure Hunt and Coloring Book

Good news for all SECRET GARDEN fans! All editions of SECRET GARDEN now feature thicker and heavier paper stock, fighting bleed-through from ink pens.

Experience the phenomenon that has sold 2 million copies worldwide and launched the coloring craze for adults.

This beautiful and interactive coloring book features delicate and highly detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life with color. As added entertainment, tiny garden creatures are hidden on the pages, waiting to be found, and a key and index are included in the back. The book's cover and jacket are also colorable.

Appealing to all ages, SECRET GARDEN is the original and first book by Johanna Basford.
