Introductions are never easy, so I'll cut right to the chase.
My name is Heather, and beyond being a 32 year old photographer and blogger, I am many things. An aspiring polyglot. An avid traveller. 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 just passed away, one within a month of the other. And to say that the weather was atrocious would be a grave understatement.
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: - photography
- social media
- language learning
- working with children
- mirrorless photography

» I am new here but don't let that deceive you. I promise that I will be working hard throughout the summer months on my cards! Check back soon for Fluffy's next adventure!
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!
Congratulations on your Design of the Day!!! Well deserved and your other designs are so cute, too.
