Business type cards

Today I finally got my courage up and ordered cards with my blog heading on them and my name and address on the back.  Barbara, of Me and my Dog and my RV had helped me by designing the nice heading of my blog a few months ago, and I liked the design she used.  So I reused it on the front of my "business" cards. 

 On the back side I used my regular name and address, email and phone. 

New card


 I had made cards for myself years ago, but the software I used was not compatible with the newer computer operating systems.  Due to that I had not been able to make my own any more, and once when I tried, the ink ran when the weather was damp or rainy.  Not liking the result, I decided to order some made by a professional company.  I had a hard time getting my courage up to figure out what to put on the cards and figure out how to order the cards online, but today was a very slow day at the office and so I utilized the time and got them ordered. I felt like a superhero when I got finished, because I had been afraid to order them for over a year!


Card holder



While feeling brave, I also ordered some key chains to give away, a card holder, and a utility bag

 So Barbara, thank you so much for the lovely heading you designed for my blog, and all the other uses it is seeing!

  3. They look GREAT! I think you'll really enjoy having them. It's so easy to pull out a card when you want to give someone your contact information and blog address. Well done!

  4. Very nice! I have been thinking of doing that myself, but haven't yet. Did you put your blog address on it?

    1. The blog address is the front side of the card, but I didn't specify that on the card. I thought That I would say it when I hand it to someone.

    1. Thanks, Andrea. I got the key chains to hand to special people, and the tote is to carry my needle work in or dog food for a daytrip.

    1. I like it too, and wish that the tote was made of something that dirt won't stick too, since I live in unpaved locations, where it will be exposed to soil.

    1. Thanks, Kirsten...I would still be pondering the design if Barbara had not helped me with the redesign of my blog heading. She's got a boatload of creativity.
