Announcing the launch of an ETSY.com Shop that will raise funds for rabbit rescue and foster care in Northern California. Artskate is proud to provide photographic folding greeting cards of rabbits for every season and occasion for PAWS for SJACs to sell. There is an assortment of cards available and guests are asked to choose 5 or 10 cards from the growing selection.  There is also an illustrated notecard set for $5.00 with more designs to come. It is the goal of Barbara, the Artskate, to create illustrated and handmade cards and notecards to add to future photo cards. Barbara will include photo cards of dogs, cats and nature in the near future.

The current assortment of cards include a California Elk, grapevines and an illustrated card of Cadbury and Bluebell.

When searching for the Esty Shop for PAWS for SJACS, go to www.etsy.com, select "SHOPS" from the drop-down menu and search for "Pawsforsjacs" to find the exact location. Other volunteers are proviiding pillow covers of dogs and cats, handmade ceramic plates and there is more to come. Think about the holiday season and try some gift shopping to help rescue and foster care all kinds of animals for adoption.

This is one of the assorted cards available for a good cause. It features Barbara's illustration of Cadbury and Bluebell. The notecards also use this image on a earthy beige recycled paper in a smaller size.
