Pen and Watercolor: the Tools of HER trade

                       A Simple Thanks

The clever Kristin Sheldon is one of our treasured artists. Heartstrings Card Company was founded by Kristin in 1981—since then, she has designed over 500 greeting cards that are sold across the country. Kristin’s cards are created by a mix of pen and watercolor which gives her cards a real sense of whimsy.

In addition to cards, Kristin has contributed her art to local, non-profit organizations. She has created posters for the Lights of December parade in Boulder, Colorado, for Habitat for Humanity, for the Beach Ball Impact on Education Fundraiser, and for the Canine Classic M.E.S.A Fundraiser. She’s even created the illustrations for the children’s book entitled The Martha is Mine by Greg Hicks and Rick Foster.

Her collection of birthday cards is simple and meaningful.

My personal favorite is the “Give Peas a Chance” card. It is a wonderful card for a baby shower and an adorable concept.
