Painting cards in bulk

This week is the end of term and to say thank you to the volunteers at our under 5s group I painted a series of cards. The basic image is the same but due to the nature of painting and because I am unable to duplicate, each one is slightly individual. Whether a spotty dress or a heart dress, a tractor tshirt or monster.

12 thank you cards

Another series of cards painted this week, was for moving house/retirement cards. I had painted one for my brother who has just moved house, then was asked if I could put together a couple more for some people at the local school who are retiring and, or moving house.

Sketches from June

So much going on, but still finding time to make birthday / thank you cards, you won't believe how much money I save by sketching my own. Here are some of June's sketches:

For my brother who doesn't really like birthday cards, but he really likes peanut butter and cucumber.

The family portrait thank you card, version number two.
First attempt was destroyed in a four year old's tantrum. But ended up being a nice end of the week shot for 7days.

Day 7: Thank you

End of term 'Thank you teacher' card.
Time to move up a year and a new teacher, so I think Miss H needs a thank you. School summer dresses are just the best.

Thank you teacher

July and August are full on birthday months. So much more to come...
