New Fall greeting card designs

I've been busy during my "free" time which is usually late at night after I am finally done with all the animals but it's too late to vacuum or do other house work.  These are so far all wildlife rehabilitation based cards, which means that each animal was cared for by me until it was old enough and capable to be successfully released into the wild.  When it comes to cards, people seem to prefer the flatter type if they need to mail the card, so I have tried to accommodate that. 

Again, these cards are completely made by hand.  The backgrounds are embossed and hand colored, the embellishments are handmade (I never use store bought embellishments!), and the designs are uniquely "Sigi's creations".  I have omitted inside greetings this time to allow you to write your personal greetings.  Your feedback is welcome!!!

The cards, which come with a handmade envelope, are priced at $5.95 each.  Again, your purchase helps me help wildlife!

Here is my litte flying squirrel baby boy who arrived with a broken wrist when he was only about 7 days old, and he is sleeping under a maple tree. 
















Two squirrel youngsters peak out of a nestbox.  Oak leaves and other fall grasses decorate the corner of tne nest box. 

















 Tornado, the now fairly famous surviving squirrel from the 2011 tornado that devastated the Sturbridge/Monson/Springfield area, eating an almond.













 And then of course there is Tubby, my Logo squirrel, whom I had gotten as a baby, raised, released, and who returned with a broken leg for help, was treated at Tufts, healed, was re-released, and then bode me a very emotional farewell.  Tubby will always have a special place in my heart.  You can read his entire story on this blog

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this post I like you post I also share with you some tips hope you like Many businesses require identification badges to enter their buildings. These ID badges usually are attached to a bland, solid colored retractable reel. Keeping the ID badge on a retractable badge reel saves the employee from losing their badge due to falling out of their pockets as the reel attaches to the badge and the employee's jacket, pocket, or anywhere else on his clothing. Make a monogrammed badge reel to bring a bit of your personality to your identity badge.ID Badge Reels
