Last year I did a few embossed Holiday Cards and sold out. With that success, I decided to create several renditions for this Holiday. I have to do a holly card every year because I just love it. L

I painted formica chips 2 years ago using spray paint and doilies. I went through a phase that year using this technique on quite a few things. Naturally, I did not get to all my ideas. Since that time there has been a stack of these "PLAQUES" just waiting to be worked on. Try as I may, I could just not get there as I did not have a good idea for them. Suddenly it came to me last week and I went to work in phases to finish this project. First, I painted flowers on 28 of them. Then I added the cats in the garden and then I put a coat of gloss medium on them. So here they are. I think they are pretty sweet and hopefully at $12-$15 they will sell as a small gift for a cat lover.
The hand drawn cat cards that I made earlier in the year have sold out. I needed to refill. Friday night was spent cutting out 3 sheets of 3 different cats to collage onto both cards and some small wall hangings. Here are some of the Cards.
You might be wondering where did these backgrounds come from? I have been going through old paintings that I don't feel are up to par and cropping them to use as cards. I also cut up a couple of old calendars and used pieces as backgrounds with my original cats. I have called these cards Recycled Art cards.
