Happy Holidays from CardCastles

As you may already know,

We are currently undergoing maintenance, making some more changes to the site, and have a lot going on behind the curtain.

We will be away for a while during the holidays and will miss you all terribly, so we are leaving you this greeting as a parting gift.

While CardCastles will remain down until around the first week of January, we will still be maintaining our art services during downtime. We have some sales going on you can find out about through our social media pages and through our CONTACT page here on site.

Any questions can be sent to Snapping Turtle through our contact page here or by calling us directly. Greeting card prints will be available all throughout the holiday season.

Have a happy, healthy, and blessed holidays

Love,

•Snapping Turtle Family•

Sleepy Sundays: Flake

Flake © 2017 Snapping Turtle Arts & Publishing | cardcastlesinthesky.com

Today we’re sharing something simple. When so much around me continues to be chaos, it’s a welcome break. It’s simple yet somehow intricate, because if you join this design with a duplicate of itself, you’ll notice it’s seamless.

That’s the idea. This pattern was created with clothing and/or objects in mind that need the pattern to wrap around. I’ve done many patterns like this in the past, but this is one of my first with a snow-themed design.

It was inspired by the little flurries that hit my area this weekend.

Do you get snow where you live?

Have a warm Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Greet

Two more additions for The Holiday Collection this week. I’m not a fan of using fonts in my work, unless I design said fonts myself. These greeting card designs are exceptions. I’m much busier closing out some book cover projects, along with planning a move from my current location. There was a need to push these out fast. The fonts helped save me some much-needed extra time. Hope you enjoy them! Just trying to spread some cheer in these dismal times we are living in.

What do you do to take your mind off the madness?

Have a cheer-filled Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Time Froze

 

Time Froze

Out with the old & in with the new as they say.
Just who is ‘they’ anyway? They is always changing.

Anyway, random thoughts aside, let’s frolic along toward the wonder that is The Holiday Collection now moving over to CardCastles. This is the first entry to move over there today. It’s going to serve as part of the greeting cards section of this collection.

The Holiday Collection was a hit when I first opened the Snapping Turtle gallery. Now that it’s all moving here to my main site, you can reach every new addition here as it’s added. We add festive pieces this time of year, but we add all sorts of holidays all year long, and even take requests for custom messages.

If you’re feeling nostalgic and want to visit the (filled) old Holiday Collection at the old gallery, give it one last look here before it closes.

Are you already getting ready for the holiday season? What holidays do you celebrate?

Have a pleasant Sunday!
