Introductions are never easy, so I'll cut right to the chase.
My name is Heather, and beyond being a 26 year old nursery school teacher, I am many things. An aspiring polyglot. An avid traveller. A passionate violinist. A chocolate addict. And hopefully, one day, a successful greeting card cartoonist.
My character is called Fluffy the Cat. (Hey, a generic name is always better than no name at all!) He decided to pay me a visit for the first time during the Christmas holidays of 2010. I was on the brink of losing my mind at the time. The boyfriend was bedridden with a 40 degree fever. My two beloved cats had passed away, one within a month of the other. And to say that the weather was atrocious would be a grave understatement.
Yes, Fluffy came to me at my lowest. For three days straight, I drew ferociously, until my sketchbook was overflowing with what would be the beginning of Fluffy's story. At the end of the Christmas break, I knew that Fluffy was destined for bigger and better things. I was determined to have Fluffy on the front of a greeting card by the end of 2011.
Fluffy and I are here to fulfil this very dream. We hope you like our cards and that they bring a smile to you and your loved ones!
My Interests: - language learning
- violin and piano
- working with children
- mirrorless photography

You've stumbled upon Heather's greeting card store, humbly entitled "My Friend Fluffy." Heather's hand-drawn cards follow Fluffy on his adventure towards becoming a real, first class, greeting card cat...right up there with Garfield, Felix, and Hello Kitty!
Yes, I know, Fluffy dreams big but I wouldn't be the one to tell him otherwise.
Help Fluffy fulfil his dream and enjoy our cards!
PLEASE NOTE: WE LOVE MAKING CUSTOM CARDS! If you see a design you like, we can rework it to fit your needs. If you have an idea, drop us a line and we'll bring your idea to life!

Wonderful cards, I love fluffy tracking through the paint, and losing the ring, and being chased by the mice. Very cute.
