Down East Churches card sets

While Down East, Leece and I noticed that the church buildings are quite impressive. Some of them are actually quite old and could probably tell some stories if their walls could talk about what happened inside those buildings.

We liked the buildings so much that we have been taking pictures of them on our last two visits and while we were visiting this last time Kim, the owner of Davis Shore Provisions, where "A Day Down East" card sets first sold, suggested that she thought cards with local church buildings on them would sell.

We thought the same and spent a day taking pictures of church buildings Down East, which Leece has developed into a set of ten note cards with envelopes which come in a folder made from a recycled file folder.

We really like these. The colored pencil feature in Photoshop made them look especially nice.

Here is a picture of the folder. The cover is one of the steeples Photoshopped in the Fresco filter.

And here are the images in the card set:

These card sets can be purchased through Etsy, but we can certainly sell single cards of one church in bulk if a pastor, outreach coordinator or layman is interested in using them. Contact Leece through WritingPlaces.com or her Etsy store for more information.

We will also have some other sets with New Bern and Beaufort churches as well.
