Catching up on Designs of the Day!

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.

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.

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!

My card won Design of the Day on Greeting Card Universe!

I was very thrilled to find my Nutty Bits Anniversary card had been chosen as GCU’s Design of the Day! This one is for Husband. I have one for wife, as well, but these cards can be easily used for any occasion you see fit just by changing the inside text.
Here is the winning design!

I made other food product cards as well and they can all be found in my store at GCU.

Welcome to my imagination!

Welcome to Creations from the Heart. I am hoping to spread a positive message because being positive will have a great impact on your life. Seeing so many people with destructive attitudes or even worse, take their own life… I have found this is something near and dear to my heart. It is not always easy to be positive and a lot of us have to work on this daily! I hope to encourage you with words or my creations! I love God, love my family, love to create, love animals and I love playing with words! I will be sharing my creations here as I have my drawings on sites like Greeting Card UniverseZazzle and my own website; Creations from the Heart. If something has meaning to you or you would like to offer positive feedback, I would love for you to share!
