A is for Adorable. C is for Cards.

Another adorable find in article research.

This one actually made it into the final list, but I just had to post it here as well. Made by Girl is an artist-owned company that I just happened to stumble upon [it reminds me of something one of my creative college friends could come up with, entrepreneur-style]. Adorable and quirky, Girl's designs are right up my alley [and printed on recycled paper, of course].

My favorite: the 'you're my peanut butter, i'm your jelly' valentine.

A is also for Apple. As in Apple #3 for my design class.
I went for a children's book theme:

This one was actually harder than it looks since I had to teach myself how to change the gradient tool from grayscale to red [which took me about a half an hour...I'm not proud of that, but at least I got it].

Last Note: Be sure to check out my article on WUNT that resulted in this fabulous find.

Love your new apple! Your progress is great :) It's very "Tim Burton" meets "The Very Hungry Catapillar" (I think that's the name of the book).

Thank you! I actually wasn't sure how I felt about this apple yet since, by design, it's not as 'polished' as the others, but I was going for a 'Very Hungry Caterpillar' type feel so I'm glad that came across. :)

No problem at all, I think your cards are adorable. I actually mentioned your site in an article I wrote for a local webzine as well. Feel free to check it out. :)
