Moo, Moo!

You must be wondering why the title of this post is Moo, Moo!!! Well, I have found something else in this wide world that I feel I must obtain. Moo cards!!! They are made in England. You pick out pictures that you have scanned onto your computer and uploaded to Flicker. Pictures that would look cool on a little business card. You pay $19.99 for 100 cards that are half the size of a regular business card. Your name, email, and website address are printed on the back. You hand them out to people.
So, I have been running around scanning random things this evening. I was trying to read, but could not get into my book. I thought I would go to bed early, but amazingly could not fall asleep. I started researching these Moo cards and here I am. I started a Flicker account and you can visit there if you like. I am going to be scanning tons of my vintage photos of people and using those for my Moo cards. I am quite impressed with myself truth be told.
Above is a card Jane found in an antique shop. Is it just not perfect? It brought tears to my eyes thinking of all my friends' Moms. I am going to try to use some of these old greeting cards for Moo cards!
Jane brought this picture back from a road trip she took with her parents to some antique shops in southern Illinois. When she saw me almost hyperventilate over it, she nicely handed it over. Isn't it just precious.

Okay, I am off to scan some more!!!!! Moooooo!

Yay! Welcome to the world of flickr! It's so fun. And the moo cards are really cute and tiny and wonderful! I've already gone through one box! Just received my second box this week.

Love the old photos you shared. The one of the girls is adorable.

You were very busy last night, no?

You will love your moo cards...I know I love mine....even though they spend most of their time sitting on my desk doing nothing but taking up space !!!

Yours will be SO cute though since you are taking the time to get some really neat ones made....someday I'll be good like you and scan great photos first and then do my ordering !!!!

Gosh, Laura, every time I come here I learn something new, those Moo cards sound fascinating, I have to find out more! BTW, summer is almost here and I am planning to start scrapbooking in a small way...thank you for being such an inspiration!

What a happy surprise I found in my mailbox today! I've been feeling a bit lost in regards to my artwork lately and this really helped to cheer me.
I love it even more in person!
Thanks for making my day!
