French Flag + Glittered Eiffel Tower, Everything Touches Everything Postcard Set of 5

These cards have a LONG history, now. They were created in 2009 as a thank you note to friends and family and strangers who donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as I trained for my third marathon in Paris, France through their Team in Training program. The quote and the borders are digitally printed, but each Eiffel Tower is hand stamped and then glittered by hand.

I had taken these cards down because while they were once popular, I didn't see the point of keeping them in my shop - I had moved away from this design from five years ago, however with the most recent events happening in France and the refugee crisis in Syria and my upcoming 35th birthday, I'm relaunching these cards as a set only of 5 for a limited time. And because I'm launching these not to make profit off of tragedy, 50% of each sale will go to Mercy Corps which is helping Syrian Refugees traveling to leave their home and possibly being turned away. They need our help more than we know. I also believe my grandmother would have wanted me to do something that keeps the spirit of France and helps those in need.

Besides being inspired by one of my favorite countries, these cards were inspired by a song on and the title of the third album released by the band "These United States" "Everything Touches Everything" which was inspired by the quote from Jorge Luis Borges, the Argentine writer and poet.

This postcard was my way of saying thanks. Thanks to everyone who donated and thanks to a Country that I love so very much. (my paternal grandmother and father were born in France.) I used the colors of the French flag as my guide and then hand-stamped and glittered each with the Eiffel Tower to reflect the Eiffel Tower as it is lit up for 10 minutes every hour at night. It is a gorgeous sight to behold and it was the perfect way to say thank you to those who were helping me accomplish my goal of running in Paris, France.

These cards were a hit and are still a favorite of mine for any occasion. Of course they are French themed, but they do have a Spanish quote, so it's quite an American idea, right? Yes!

Now, I'm hoping to inspire you and your loved ones and to give back to those desperately in need. When donations are made on your behalf, you'll be notified by email.

A set includes 5 cards and are handmade which means that each one will be a bit different. There is enough room for you to jot down a note and write the receivers address on the back and include a postcard stamp and mail away.

Any questions can be directed to me by convo!
