I highly recommend this card. The quality of the card stock is high, the photograph purely professional and the words are the perfect message to go with the photograph. I received the card promptly and in fine condition, as it was packed in an appropriate package. The combined talents of Debra and Martin are phenomenal and I recommend the purchase of any of their cards. Elissa Schwartz


HisLensMyPen...addressing the heart not the calendar

After talking about it for years, my husband and I have finally joined creative forces. By merging stunning Nature photography (his) with with spot-on inspirational messages (mine), we create greeting cards that reflect universal relationships and experiences. On our shop's front page you can read more about the genesis of His Lens/My Pen greeting cards.

What makes His Lens/My Pen cards different from other all other cards?

One, each card's message has been written specifically to reflect what the photograph is saying visually. Consider it a translation, like French to English but in this case image to word.

Two, His Lens/My Pen cards can be used for multiple occasions. "Take Flight: makes a great card for graduation, birthday, anniversary, or to inspire someone turning over a new leaf or beginning a new venture. "Soar with Friends" is a wonderful "just-because-I think-you're-a-wonderful-friend" kind of card. But it's perfect for birthdays. Someone told me she used it as a thank you to a travel agent who organized a girl trip for her and her friends. "Take it One Step at a Time" is an important message for our impatient loved ones. Or for someone in recovery. The possibilities are nearly endless

Three, His Lens/My Pen cards zero in on realities that other cards don't even touch. "Some Folks" is perfect for validating the gifts of a shy child. "Goose Talk" can help break the ice when couples and/or parents and their teens are struggling to see eye-to-eye.

So there you have it for now. Thank you for visiting. If you want to get in touch, please do so on the contact shop owner page.

"Creativity" is the conventional term for the kind of brain that flits like a bumblebee from one gorgeous blossom of an idea to another….. My husband is a terrific photographer. Why don't we join creative forces? I'll write meditations to pair with his glorious images. We'll call it His Lens/My Pen.
