One of my favorite products to date is the assorted set of Friendly and Fruity Mini Valentines. This year I added an additional assorted set to the mix - Sweet Sayings. I have loved coming up with cute and clever phrases that appeal to both the young and young at heart.
Each pack contains 8 cards - 2 of each design, along with tiny white envelopes. The cards are printed on 100% cotton (tree free paper) and measure 2.5" x 3.5". Seal them with a sticker, stick them onto a pack of Valentines candy with some washi tape, or just pass one to a buddy!
You can find these packs along with all of my other designs for Valentine's Day here in the shop.
I've released a number of new card designs for 2015 which I'll introduce over the next few days. First, brand new love cards just in time for Valentine's Day!
I love simple and sweet sentiments and "you make my heart beat faster" had been an idea in my head for awhile. I've been pleasantly surprised by how well received it's been so far. It was featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper earlier this week, too!
We listen to a lot of Jack White in my house and the lyric "cuz I'm your favorite fella" from the White Stripes song Hotel Yorba stuck with me. Perfect for your husband, boyfriend, son, or best guy friend!
Finally, I'm a huge animal lover and have many dog and cat loving friends that I had in mind when I designed this card. Little pink paw prints pattern the background. I can't wait to send this to many of my dear friends!
I have loved getting inspiration for wrapping holiday gifts over on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favorite ideas!

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving filled with food, family, and fun. We are now in the home stretch leading up to Christmas time. For independent makers like myself this is the busiest time of year. I can't stress enough how much it means to me when you choose to shop with Happy Cactus over big boxes stores or chains.
I'm excited to be included in Little Hip Squeak's awesome Black Friday Shopping Guide for the second year in a row. Amy and her team have curated a list of independent makers, movers and shakers all offering amazing discounts on their items. You can save 30% off your entire Happy Cactus order when you use the code LHS30OFF at checkout. I hope you'll spend some time perusing the guide and learning about new makers that I'm sure would love your support this holiday season!
Looking for a unique gift idea for kids or family? How about one of Happy Cactus' art prints?
At a few recent sales events I had many customers purchasing art prints for baby's nursery, office walls, or to give as gifts.
A few details: the prints are sold in two sizes - 5" x 7" or 8" x 10", they are printed on a thick cotton paper, and the colors are vibrants and really pop. Even better - they are all under $20! Find all of the design options in the online shop here!
Here's a little secret about Happy Cactus Designs' cards: they come with the BEST envelopes. I searched high and low for well-made, thick white envelopes and love the stock I settled on. The best part? Not only are they 100% recycled content, they also have a peel-and-stick closure. No more licking envelopes and trying to get that taste out of your mouth. Sending holiday cards just got a little bit easier!
