2 more new designs

2 more new designs I've added to my greeting card line. I'm really happy with the way the top one came out. For those of you who don't know, I have a greeting card line of images all about coffee. I do live in the coffee capital of the US, after all! My main client is Starbucks and they use the cards to send to their employees for events such as birthdays and company anniversaries. Isn't that a cool thing for a large corporation to do? Me thinks so!

I'm getting linked up over at LinkedIn. How about you? Want to connect? I'm not sure how or if this will ever help me in my professional life, but it's kind of fun!

IF - caution

This Mom always uses caution when taking her kids and their friends to school, using a rope line to keep them safe. Even the dog is part of the line, she doesn't want him running into traffic!

IF - wrapped

When I was about 8 or 9, we were visiting my grandmother and I took our dog for a walk around the neighborhood. A large dog, German Shepherd, if I remember clearly, was on a near by porch as we walked by and of course, started barking his fool head off when he saw our dog. She got so scared, she ran in circles around me, wrapping the leash around my ankles, then took off. I took a header, landing on the concrete sidewalk and broke my wrist!
I spent the rest of the summer in a cast and never took the dog for a walk again.

Remember these sketches? here's what I ended up doing with them...2 new holiday card designs for my greeting card line. Thanks to everyone who voted for their favorite sketch! I think the penguins will be the best seller this year, I've already gotten a few orders for it!

IF - impatience

For Illustration Friday this week. Mom's getting impatient with all the whining in the back seat!
I actually posted this one for a previous IF challenge, but I've got a busy week coming up and won't have time to create a new one, so this will have to do. Plus, it really does fit the theme word perfectly!

IF - modify

When Emma decided her new favorite color was green, she modified her diet and would only eat food that was green. This, of course, delighted her mother, who happily fed her green veggies all day long.

Based on a semi-true story - when my daughter was about 4, she went through a mini stage of only eating food that was yellow. I was glad it only lasted a few days, because she didn't like most of the yellow foods I tried to give her!

Working on trying to get my working mojo back - this helped. Thank you, Illustration Friday!
