Eagle Scout Congratulations

Every so often I remind my friends that I have created two illustrations that are quite popular as greeting cards for new Eagle Scouts. My son is an Eagle and he had such a great experience with the Boy Scouts, learning great practical skills and making good friends, while reinforcing the responsibility and morals that we tried to instill as he grew up.

I drew the whimsical Eagle Salute Congratulations card first, for a friend of my son’s who achieved the rank a few years before him. When my son made Eagle and had his Court of Honor alongside his best friend, I painted the Eagle Scout on a hilltop scene.

Small Biz, Piano & Eagle Scout Cards

etsy_4itemsJust a reminder that I created original illustrations for all the items on my Etsy shop – which you can visit by clicking here .

I created the Eagle Scout congratulations cards when my son earned his Eagle, and if I may mention, I’ve received wonderful reviews from people who buy and give them to the fine young men who achieve Scouting’s highest award.

I drew the small biz Thank You cards while I was a member of the excellent Women’s Business Forum of Bucks County, and can customize a message and your logo inside the cards if you contact me to request it. Those notecards come with the front message of either “Thank You for Sending Business My Way” for sole proprietors, or “Thank You for Sending Business Our Way” for small businesses.

I drew the Panda Piano notecards because I do illustrations for classical music groups in my area like the Lenape Chamber Ensemble and the Bucks County Symphony, and the cards are enjoyed by piano teachers, music lovers and panda lovers alike!

Etsy makes it easy to order, but if you are closeby me in the Central Bucks County area and would like to avoid the shipping fees that Etsy requires, just email me through my contact page, and we can arrange for you to pick up the cards from me.

Eagle Scout Congratulations

Every so often I remind readers that I have created two illustrations that are quite popular as greeting cards and prints to give to new Eagle Scouts. My son is an Eagle and he had such a great experience with the Boy Scouts, learning outdoor skills that I certainly could not have taught him, while reinforcing the responsibility and morals that I did try to instill as he grew up.

My Eagle Scout Congratulations Cards

My son, who made Eagle in his senior year of high school, had so many fun adventures with his friends while learning the wonderful skills that BSA teaches. He often gets together with his scouting buddies, several of whom also achieved Eagle, when he comes home for a weekend – their memories and friendships will last a lifetime. I painted these two congratulations cards because I continue to be impressed with the values and hard work of these fine young men.

eagleflagwp16Both of my Eagle Scout Congratulations cards are printed in full color on sturdy glossy card stock, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, with an envelope included. The cards stand out because they are a little larger than standard greeting cards, but they still only need regular first-class postage. The cardstock is made from partially recycled paper and the cards are printed here in my hometown of Doylestown, PA.

I’ve had many repeat customers, with one father of an Eagle Scout writing that “these are beautiful cards and an inspiration to the scouts receiving them.”

I would be grateful, if you enjoy my artwork, if you would ‘like’ my professional facebook page, which is here. Also, my website shows the other greeting cards, children’s books and cartoons I’ve illustrated for all occasions.  If you’d like to get an inside look at my newest sketches and illustrations, go to my blog, Pencilled In, and click on the +Follow box on the lower right corner of the screen, to receive an email alert whenever I’ve posted new drawings. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn here.
