These are the best!

Raven’s Rest Studio is the quintessential in combining captions with vintage photographs; however, Raven’s uncanny talent for always having exactly what I need before I know i need it is uncanny - and kinda’ spooky😳 I just happened to come across this card after receiving a note from a dear friend who was having a serious health problem with her legs. She wrote the following”... by the end of June, I should be able to shed my leg wraps and emerge as the butterfly we always knew was in there.” Never dreaming or even thinking about a greeting card related to her note when I came across this particular card that I snapped up immediately and saved until now to send it to my friend, coming upon the end of June and planning on getting together Prosecco. 😄 Yet just another example why I 😍 Raven’s Rest Studio, and keep coming back.

Love this card! So relevant right now for we women solopreneurs reinventing and emerging - again!

They are delightful! High quality beautiful cards! I bought them for my daughter's birthday, because butterflies know that growing up is hard, and the pics and the mottos are perfect. Customer service also gets 5 stars!
