    I was wondering who uses quilter's cards such as the two shown here. I love to send cards and I am a Quilter...go figure. LOL Just wondering how many out there look for quilting cards to send with their sales or just to say hi. Does it go that far for you? I see them online but don't want to pay shipping. Oh where, oh where can we find them?

    Just a couple. I've seen plenty. Laurel Burch on top.

    You can make your own on the computer. Even use a picture of one of your favorite projects!! That would make them very personal!!

    Great idea too, NP3 has sent me cards with beautiful pictures on the front. Quilts would work. And my quilts will personalize it.

    Thanks for all ther ideas. Guess I will be looking for cardstock this weekend. ♥♥

    Thanks! :) Know what - I'll see what I can do about making some quilting themed ones. It'll take a few days, I can only work on them an hour or two each night.

    I'll make them into a PDF file that ya'll can print at home if you'd like. You'd just need cardstock for your printer (and a color printer)

    I found those and I had to get them for you. The wooden container and then the horses wre just you CG. Glad you like them

    And to mention, the musical cards are fun too, though not quilty.....unless you count Betty Boop as quilty,. Lots of ideas. Glad I posted this. Will keep checking here .

    When I did the Shop Hop to find the "bunny" on the internet, I found a few stores around the country with gift departments. I found some really neat stuff! One of our LQS does carry quilt cards. Don't forget "Google".

    Jenn - seriously, you spend way too many hours making your designs with your fairies and things. I am always amazed at the scrapping and such people do. NP3 makes a great scrap book and GRamma mo too. Lots of us for that matter. YOu are a dear. Hope your little one is still loving her quilty. I have her picture. Love her nickname too. LOL

    Your avatar is georgeous. Wow. I will google too. Maybe on sale and free if you buy more. Now that would be a sale. Yup...

    Miss Mayhem??? She can't go to sleep without her hugs quilt and the quick Dora one I made her. (It's just a yard of fabric, selvedges cut off quickly quilted and "birthed") Those are "my favorites, I need DOWWA and MY HUGS" to quote Mayhem. :D

    I'll get a couple cards done, I think I can do it anyway!

    I agree with you. I have been a card sender all my life. SO when I get them, they hang around my room a while then go into a box I keep them in. I always look thru them too. I love to read them and it brings to mind what we were doing then and there. I would think anyone who got a card would just have to keep it. My youngest dd.....reads it, out it goes. DOn't know where she gets those genes from. LOL

    Ms Mayhem. I have that picture and she is just too cute cuddled up. YOu should post that picture too. I didn't because some don't like pics of kids here. I have color printer, will get some card stock. I am thinking I have some. Will ask NP3 when she gets home. LOL. SHe knows my rooms better than me now. SO funny.
    Thank you everyone.♥♥

    When the quilts from Gees Bend were shown here they sold notecards with the quilts on them. I bought a few boxes and I think I'm down to my last 3 cards. I love to send & receive cards. I keep looking for more "quilty" cards; can't seem to find any. Love the ones you showed and can't wait to see what you super-talented ladies come up with!

    janRN - I agree, I am waiting anxiously myself. Have pictures made on regular picture stock ans use them. Retreat pictures or gathering QB members pictures would be awesome too. Lots of ideas.

    I have the same ones as your DWR ones. Nicely embossed. Also another set in a different pattern. They were very expensive, so they only get used for someone who will truly appreciate them!

    I'm making some with pics I've taken of the quilts, and will have a description on the back of the card with another related picture of a close up or perhaps the back of the quilt if it is interesting.

    We have a little store that sells a few cards that are "quilt related", but they're quite pricey. I bought one last year, it was $4.00.

    I love them too. I usually find them in quilt shops or specialty card shops. Also in Quilt Magazines sometimes they have an online shop you can investigate.
