After working nine years as a designer for Canada’s largest sporting goods retailer, I found love in creating cards for some of the most precious moments in life, from birth announcements and birthday cards to wedding invitations. I feel very fortunate to be able to work creatively from home where I can also spend time with my two young children.

Thank you so much for your comment, Jana - I wanted to say a quick "hello" because I noticed on your profile that you're in Calgary! Yay - another Alberta girl! Everyone else seems so far away geographically so it's nice to know there's someone close by (well, relatively speaking ;)... I checked out your page and absolutely love your work - just gorgeous stuff :) Nice to "meet" you!
Zkusila jsem něco jiného, zdá se mi to lepší... and what about this version? Thank you in advance for your help :-)
Díky za komentář, thank you for your comment... especially from you :-) Stamp like edges... yes I want to send a fairytale... maybe reduce the picture or the dwarf and put it into the top right corner ... like a stamp?
Hey, thanks for reading my blog! I hope you are doing well and are feeling better to submit a few designs. Minted isn't the same without you : ) Keep us posted on your little one to be!
CONGRATS. on your newest member!! That's great news :) Definitely best to relax and take care of yourself for now!
Thanks also for your kind words. You are one of my fave designers too - so it means a lot! Also, way to go with the commercial success of "love birds" - a great accomplishment!
Hi Jana, just wanted to let you know that I miss seeing your designs and that for "little lamb" (business card), I blew up the lamb really, really big for the notecard! (You commented that you wish you could zoom in :) ) Hope all is well!!
Thank you very much, I was pleasantly surprised. Your designs are beautiful and delicate. You can see the care and love for work.
Přeji vám hodně štěstí a zdraví :-)
