A Fabulous New Blog

There's a new blog on the block that's going to knock your socks off!  :)  It's kind of an extension of the Greeting Card Universe (which I shared with you in my last post).  This new blog: GCUCommunity is an online newsletter created by Corrie Kuipers which supplements GCU in a lot of wonderful ways, but my favorite way is how it summarizes the absolutely best topics/talents/news from GCU into very nice, reader-friendly morsels.  We (the GCU artists) are kept up-to-date by Corrie on everything we need to know to succeed with our work at GCU.

Furthermore, through the GCUCommunity, we are inspired and encouraged to learn new tips and techniques for making high-quality greeting cards, and to share the love with our fellow artists.  :)

So with that, I'd like to extend my first "share the love" posting and link to three especially impressive cards and their respective artists.  The first is a Happy Mother's Day card by John H Johnson (he was my first blog follower, so he gets this special shout out. :)  Hey John!).  The second is from Tanya at Moonlake Designs (who happened to be my second blog follower). Oh, and when you visit Tanya's blog, notice her excellent choice in blog background designs (at the time of this writing, it's the same as mine - lol!).  I've never met Tanya, but I feel like I'm in really good company when I find that the blog design I selected (many months ago) is identical to that of someone who has as much talent as Tanya does (air fistbump, Tanya!).  :)  Anyhow, last (but definitely not least) is a lovely card by Rycky Creations (the GCU Community's current Design Spotlight Artist).  As an 11+ year cancer survivor myself, I'm honored and humbled to highlight this one:

So enjoy their cards and check back often, because I'll share other gems in the future.


  1. Great blog, Cindy! And, I'm not saying that just because you highlighted one of my cards...but, I do appreciate it! Robin

  2. Hi Cindy! Thanks for the plug (sorry I'm a bit late, I just saw your post today). BTW, this post makes you eligible for our Contest, so I've gone ahead and entered you into the drawing. Great blog!


  3. Thanks Robin and Corrie! :) And also thanks for entering me in the drawing, Corrie. I misinterpreted the premise of the contest in the first place (when I promoted 3 of my own cards - lol!) Then after thinking about it, I realized what was intended. :D

    Thanks again!
