Do you have a Calling Card?

How many times, have I run into people and I need to trade email addresses or blog names etc.  Since I've stopped working, I've missed not having my business cards.  And time and time again, even just today, I've wished I had a card or something to give somebody that had my contact info.    A couple of times, when I knew I needed them for a meeting, I made up a dozen paper business cards using a MS Word template.  But that's good only if I know I'm going to need them.....   

So, last week, prompted by a "Free 250 Business Cards" ad, I was looking again at designs, that were not so much business like, but showed more of my personality.   And I found one that I loved. The vintage sewing machine is just perfect for me.  It wasn't part of the "Free" ones, but just the same,  I entered all my contact info online, with blog name and email address.  I moved around some of the content and played with sizes, and I'm pleased with the final result.  I just got them by mail.  

Do you like them?  

I've blotted out the vertical address along the left side and
the phone and email but they are there in person :).

I know exactly what you mean...I miss having my business cards, too. I don't know how many times I've torn off a piece of paper towel, napkin...whatever! I really like the card you chose...snazzy.

They are lovely. I have some as well, just for when someone needs your contact info, but they're not as pretty as yours. Guess I'm going back into the website!!
