is Linda and I'd like to personally thank you for taking the
time to browse my website. I hope you love what you see
here. I began creating custom photo birth announcements back in 2005 and
then branched to other specialty cards including invitations
and holiday cards (which are extremely unique). Please send me an email if you have any
questions or would like to see a FREE proof with your
I have the
Canadian and US flag above because I am a citizen of both
countries. I now live in Canada, but only a half hour from
the US border. Also, with the current exchange rate I am able to
offer the cards at par (in Canadian dollars) to my fellow
creating these beautiful cards in May 2005. Before I had my
children I had been an insurance broker for 10 years. I had
finished years of schooling (Business classes in University
and through the Insurance Institute of Canada). I obtained
the 2nd highest designation available in the insurance
industry, but then I became a Mommy. It changed my life and
after my two wonderful boys were born I knew I wanted to
stay home with them.
I took my
hobbies photography (which has now become a successful career), web design and graphic art and combined all 3 of
these skills and developed

I am a graphic
design artist. I have been creating graphics and websites for the
past 10 years. In 2005 I found my
niche to be custom photo cards. I still do other graphic design
work, but cards have developed into the majority of my business. If
you are looking for something unique; you have found it here
www.graphicthinking.com. I stress that my designs are unique.
You will not find these designs or anything else like them anywhere.
The custom designs are beautiful and elegant while still being

When I was 19 (back in 1994) my husband (boyfriend at the time),
myself and my friend were involved in a horrible accident in my
best friend's mini. We were hit by a pickup truck and my friend
sustained a major head injury and almost died. She was in a coma
for 3 months. Thankfully she made it, but still has severe
problems including balance, speech and extreme memory loss. The
truck kicked us 50 feet down the road like a tin can. I had a
laceration on my head (from hitting the window), partially
collapsed lung, and a broken hand. Thankfully I have healed just
fine. I have absolutely no memory of the accident.
My friend was driving and took the brunt of the accident. As you
can see the damage is mostly to the drivers door where the truck
hit. Incredibly, I still love minis and so does she, but
unfortunately she will never be able to drive one again. I thank
God that we all lived. My friend will never be the same, but she
has a good quality life. She now lives with her mom, drives a
scooter and has a couple of nice dogs. She moved out of town a few
years ago with her mom, but she still comes and visits me a couple
of times a year. We stay in touch by email daily.
Here are a few photos:
