I have been away creating new cards and even creating some new products.  I wanted to first catch up on some Design of the Day awards from Greeting Card Universe.  So, here are a handful that I have had in the meantime.

Celebrating Design of the Day Award!

Speaking of celebrate, my Cinco de Mayo Party Invitation won the Design of the Day award on GCU today.

This made my Valentine’s Day even more special, but who needs a reason to celebrate?

Margarita, anyone?

Customizable Birthday for Dentist-Dental Terms Subway Art =DotD!

My subway art inspired customizable birthday card for a dentist was selected as Design of the Day on Greeting Card Universe for November 23, 2012. Being that it is the day after Thanksgiving, I am certainly grateful to have my design chosen!!  This card would be great for any dentist you know.  The best part is you can customize the front with a name or change it up for anyone in the dental field. Just change the inside with your own special and fitting message and you are set.

You will also find thank you cards specifically from Dental Assistant Interns or cards to  congratulate the newly graduating dentist.


Don’t for get the gift items from my Zazzle store!

Sad Faced Mummy gets DotD Award!

This cute mummy with a sad face was selected for Design of the Day on Greeting Card Universe on October 26, 2012! This surely turned his frown upside down!! Perfect card to send to that special someone with a Halloween Birthday, but you just happened to get tied up and missed it. Let them know you were still thinking of them.

Also, you will be able to find this design with a happy face to wish someone a Happy Halloween as I have some family specific designs and a general “Happy Halloween” version available.

Catcher’s Mitt and Baseball design hits a home run with “Today’s Best” award!

Happy to have my design picked by the Zazzle Team for the “Today’s Best” award!  Let this fun design  hit a home run for you too by using it to announce your engagement.  Great for the “avid baseball fans” couple.

You can even get the matching announcements!

This Red-head feels special!- Design of the Day awarded to this card!

Sometimes red heads get a bum rap, but not in this case … she helped me get Design of the Day on GCU.  I guess having a daughter with auburn hair got me started on drawing kids with auburn or red hair!  Anyway, glad to share her and hope she can make someone’s day!

If you like her, there are many versions available in my shop at http://www.greetingcarduniverse.com/christieblack or just write me and let me know if you need it customized
Enjoy!

Groundhog gets Design of the Day award!

2012 has started out on a high note with another design picked as Design of the Day on GCU! Maybe some of us are looking a bit like this groundhog (bloodshot eyes and all) after the New Year weekend!!
This groundhog thinks February 2nd is a lot of pressure to put on a rodent in this humourous Groundhog Day card.

I never knew Groundhog Day cards would be popular, but this Groundhog Day Card is one of my biggest sellers! It was my last card to sell in 2011 and one of the very first cards to sell in 2012 … who would’ve guessed! I couln’t resist using the same little groundhog for the new card.
Enjoy!

Another Lion and Lamb get the Design of the Day award!

I hadn’t had a chance to add this award earlier, but I got it the day after Christmas, so it was a very fitting design.

 

Cute little lion and lamb enjoy their gifts and are very thankful and overjoyed; just as I am for getting the award!

Thrilled to have another card chosen for Design of the Day on GCU!!

I was very thrilled to have this card picked as Design of the Day on GCU. I had drawn this dog a year ago and he sat in my files until I decided what to do with him. He is very ha-ha-happy to be honored in such a way!! I hope you will Enjoy him!
