I started blogging because I love to write and I love Photography.  I am constantly gathering pictures I admire in files and realized it was time to create a Photo Blog, with commentary.  About the same time I started this blog I opened an E Store on Etsy.com, an online site for Artisans of Handmade creations.  My shop, CARDTALES BY THE LIONESS, opened in October 2011 and I am learning how to market my Art Greeting Cards, Art Prints, and my Photography everyday. 

I hope you enjoy the photographs I post from many sources.  If you also like artsy greeting cards filled with animals, especially lions and cats, pictures of trees and nature…welcome Home.

For The Card/Art/Animal Lovers – here is a little more about me and my Shop on Etsy:

CardTales’ Shop Announcement

Welcome to CardTales!Please come by and visit my little shop on Etsy! I have always loved arts & crafts, photography, decoupage, and just being creative. I love greeting cards and creating just the right card for someone special is something I love to do. Before starting my Card Shop I had a career in Academic Advising. Now I share my studio with my partner, The Shark, who is a Graphic Artist. Together, we are raising a small lion; a cat named Sushi.

I love animals (especially cats and lions), trees, leaves, patterns, texture and color. Please take a look around and have fun! I also offer prints of my photographs, printed in whimsical colors. Some are optimized digitally to complete my interpretation. Oscar Wilde once said, “No artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did he would cease to be an artist.”

All cards are left blank inside for your personal message. If you would like me to add a certain greeting, or to personalize a card, please send me a message so I can add this to your card or print. Also, my cards and prints can be printed on high quality, matte finish OR gloss photography paper…please let me know if you have a preference. If you have any questions about any of my cards or prints, please send me a message.

Happy Hunting from The Lioness!


Thank You for visiting.
