1st Set of cards

I have two sets of cards packaged and ready to mail. Please specify which set you would like as they are slightly different.
The sets include:
1 Thank You (blue/gray)
1 Sympathy (brown/olive/cream)
1 Celebrate (cupcake)
2 customizable cards (floral pink/green)

The floral cards have 3 different sentiments, which allows you to customize each card. Choose the sentiment, peel off the backing and place in the center of the tag. The cream, brown and blue cupcake card has a embossed confetti background . It is difficult to see in these pictures, but it looks great in person. Click on pictures for a closer look at the cards.

Blessings, Elizabeth

For the love of animals

I am lucky enough to have friends that give me their scraps. They think I am doing them a favor by taking them. I think they are doing ME a favor by GIVING me beautiful pieces of design paper, ribbons, stickers, etc. I have made cards with these free goodies for almost two years now. I don't feel right selling the cards made from donated scraps, so I had this idea. To start a blog called Animal Scraps. With a donation of $25 a set of 5 hand crafted cards and envelopes will be mailed to the address you specify.

All donations collected by me will be sent to various animal shelters. Blog readers are encouraged to suggest various animal shelters they live near or support, which means the donations will be spread around the United States.

We don't have human children of our own. We do however have 4 furry four-legged children who are loved and adored. If we had a bigger house and unlimited funds, we would provide food, shelter and love to all unwanted and unloved animals, but we don't have that luxury. This is my way of taking unwanted scraps and turning them into something more than scraps...Animal Scraps.

I have a full time job, I am a jewelry designer and card designer. I am married to a wonderful man that loves animals as much (if not more) as I do. I hope you will join me in this journey.

I will be posting pictures of cards and payment details shortly.

For the love of animals,
