You are invited to view my little collection of invitations. Any design that I do can be put into an invitation like this. These are all fill in the blank invitations but I can also do custom printing for these as well. A nest would be adorable for a housewarming, a dragonfly or a bee for almost any event. I will be using a lot of my designs in my future wedding invitation line. If you have any questions, please email me at kara@kararosenberry.com and I will be happy to chat with you about any invitation needs.
Happy Weekend!

old things


old things on my shelves.

I love to collect old things. I was putting my shelves back together and put these things together for a quick picture.
The photos- the one with the horse features my grandfather Henry and his sisters Stella and Ruby. In the picture of the two girls, one is my mother, one is my aunt playing bride on the lawn. I feature this picture in my "here comes the bride" card listed under my vintage series. There is a little pile of song books from my Grandma(the orange book) and vintage paper, with a reprodution flash card from Patina, a fabulous antique store here in Denver. The Bingo card is also from Patina.

Wedding Invitations::In Bloom:: Finished Product




All done! I love the way they turned out! I did these flowering branch invitations for a client and love the way they turned out. I hope to have my whole line of wedding invitations ready to launch this fall. This is the first design of the line, titled "in bloom."

randomness::Chandeliers, weekend, family and a little business on the side!



I love chandeliers... don't you? I drew this for a friend's rehearsal dinner last year and it has become a favorite. These pictures are from the show I did in March and I just wanted to share them with you. Flowers were by my friend Emily...
Happy Weekend! It is snowing here and Denver... around 10 inches yesterday. My sister and her family were here but I didn't get to spend much time with them because they were staying 45 minutes south of here where the weather was the worst. Thursday night, her and I had plans to come into Denver and go to the Dbar- a fabulous dessert place but the weather was so bad we stayed out in Castle Rock, where she was staying and went to the Barn, a fabulous old Barn full of Antiques... I picked up a new wholesale client from one of the vendors that was working that night. She bought several packages on the spot. Mel with a little booth called The Magpie. I think my note cards will fit in perfectly with her botantical, rich colored little booth that features a great perfume called Tokyo Milk (I want it now, wish I would have bought it!), vintage canisters, fabulous little earrings and she happens to be from Omaha or lived in Omaha for a time so we had a lot to talk about. Then my sister and I went to this great restaurant called Sienna, had a fabulous meal and a very fun waiter name Joey who is an artist from New York. Such fun. I had to finally remind my sister that I had to be at work at 7 am the next day, so we better go!
This morning I got to watch my nieces dance in an Irish dance contest called a Feis. It was fun. My 4 year old niece competed for the first time and she didn't know when to stop dancing. She just would have kept going and going! Darling! The older two nieces are very accomplished and I am so proud of them, of all of them.
On the way home tonight I stopped into the Dbar and am excited to say I finally talked to Keegan Gerhard, the owner and a chef that hosts some food challenge shows on the food channel, and I am going to be doing some custom work for him:: some thank you cards. I am so glad we finally got to talk, we have been talking about doing this since October and keep missing eachother! I will have to post what I end up drawing for him. It involves cupcakes. Exciting stuff.
I am going to watch a movie, try to stay warm and maybe work on some orders tonight or tomorrow.
Happy Weekend!

My friend Emily and I and a few other friends are doing the Sweet William Market in Denver this summer. I plan to sell my usual cards there but also plan on doing some other fun stuff, like these lovely little garlands. I found the instructions for these on some other blog, somewhere, don't know where! I read too many blogs, obviously. Emily invited me up to her apartment yesterday ( we live in the same building) for some waffles and crafting. I haven't done anything but make cards in such a long time so I was baffled as to what to make. I was reminded that I found these instructions for the blog and that I have a ton of different papers laying around my house that I need to get rid of. So I decided to make these. They are all about 5 feet long and were very easy and fun to make.
Oh and the house is Emily's. Beautiful isn't it? That mirror and the vases and her french picture over her dining room table are all so fabulous. They make a great back drop for a spotaneous photo shoot.
Happy weekend...
