From Heather:

“As a mama working in corporate America, I spend a lot of time emailing, instant messaging, and texting. And while I won't dispute the efficiency and ease of these technologies, I will never, ever give up paper. There's nothing more personal than a handwritten note - and no doubt the recipient will appreciate a reprieve from the junk mail!

To brighten up your and your recipient's day while we wait for spring to infuse color back into our surrounds, there's the M: Studio collection by Margot Madison. These personalized note cards are simple yet punchy. Printed on heavy card stock with rounded corners; you can personalize the front of the card with your name and choose from one of five bright, graphic patterns for the reverse and matching envelope liner. My favorite design is the Mandarin Damask, which translates beautifully on these card sets.

It would be nice if there were volume discounts (i.e., it's $22.50 per 10 cards whether you get 10, 50, or 100) and you didn't have to pay for a digital proof, but otherwise, these cards are lovely for personal use or as a gift.”
