Sue Rostvold and husband Allan Little launched their greeting card company in November of 2005. They have a wonderful assortment of holiday and just plain greeting cards to choose from.
The photographs by Sue are just incredible and I also love the quotes. Inside the cover featuring a Basset Hound the card reads: "A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself."
The cards are printed on uncoated, 100% post consumer recycled paper. When compared side-by-side with coated, mass-produced, 30% recycled card stock, our cards consume 20% less total energy and 7.5% less solid waste.
The cards are available online and at select stores. Check them out:
