The cards developed from teasing my niece, Eliza, about going to camp. And how I was going to write her lots of letters. Since I teased her for four full days, I decided I couldn’t buy a card—instead I made her a card. At first I digitally printed the cards, until my husband suggested I screen-print them. Now I’m addicted to the whole process of screen-printing: drawing the artwork, inking on mylar, shooting the screens. And most all printing them.


Don't forget cards make great gifts!
