a snap & tumble favorite




I've have a small collection of greeting cards that I give out for special occasions. As a letterpress printer with her own line of cards, you might think I use my own stationery to give with gifts or as snail mail. But for some reason, I don't. I usually like to take the opportunity to explore other artist's works and share those with friends instead. Clare Rojas is one such fine artist who's body of work I admire. I have a soft spot for folk style inspired art so I found Rojas' images immediatly appealling. Her colourful gouache paintings make me smile. And these notecards, "From My Garden" collection make it the perfect way to spread some of that happiness to others.

PS. I'm also a little bit crazy about The Floriography Journal. The cloth cover makes it extra special and a treat to journal in.

I love Clare Rojas' work! I've never seen this set of cards though! I think I'll have to go out and find some for myself! Have you seen her book, "Hope Springs Eternal"? It's amazing. She also did a children's book, but I don't remember the name of it.
