Hi Robin,
 
I read on the forum here that blank cards do not sell as well as cards with verse. BUT, you have such talent and style, it probably won't make a difference in your case.  Wink
 
Thanks for the humorous verse!  Grin

thanks Evelyn
 
I Agree .. and Im sure its so true. Im really hoping.. People can use them as Just note cards.. But I know I can ,,,,say Miss you,, Love you,, stuff like that, but it just sounds so boring to me, Maybe customers will come up with something if they really like the art.  Roll Eyes

Robin,
 
I just did a Google search for "fairy verses" and found this great site:
 
http://www.love-of-poems.com/fairy-poems-verses-quotes.html
 
If you like any and plan to use them, it's best to stick with the "author unknown" verses, or those that were penned before 1920, so you don't have to worry about copyrights.

Hi Robin,
At first glance two possibles come to mind.
First Birth announcements...On the front "It's a Girl"  Inside..."Announcing the birth of our daughter....etc
Cat=Announcements>Birth/New Baby>Girl
 
Second "Congratulations on the birth of your daughter"  Inside "May all her dreams come true"
Cat=Congratulations>New Baby>Girl
 
Also as I mentioned to Evelyn be careful of border, whilst some may be trimmed off during printing it is not always an even cut off all around.
 
Also it may work as "Happy Birthday"  Inside "May all your Dreams come true"
Cat=Birthday>Mixed Media/Collage and Birthday>For Kids>For Girls.
 
Don't know if any of that helps. It is a beautiful card

I think that looks lovely Smiley  
The Happy Birthday is noticeable yet nice and subtle and does not take the eye away from the sleeping fairy/mermaid. I give it a hearty

Hi Robin...me again Smiley
 
Just a thought.... your cards also fit well in Collections>Mystical and Myths> Fairies-or-Mermaids so when you select a category eg Happy Birthday also choose this category. The reviewers will have the final say on  if they can or cannot go there, as well as the other, but I think it seems reasonable and worth a try. If you have not got them in there already...I didn't check Cheesy
 
As far as your latest.
How about Happy Earth Day.......Celebrate the wonders of Mother Earth
Holidays>Earth Day>General
With perhaps an version for birthday on Earth Day.
 
also Occasions>Seasons>Spring.
Spring is here.............Time for all Mother Nature's creatures to awaken.
 
This link is very helpful when choosing categories since you get to see the main categories at a glance, there is a more detailed one but it is so big I find it more difficult. I use this one and just drill down until I reach the final sub-cat that works.

Well better go finish some other things here now  Winkbut this sure was fun. Hope I haven't been too annoying.
