I am Katie Davies and I began making animated e cards almost 5 years ago. I am passionate about the environment and I am always on the look out for eco-friendly ideas. While searching for an e card to send for my Mum’s birthday on the internet, I realised that there were not many good quality e cards that I liked. I decided then to make my own e card with the help of my husband Nick who is an animator, taking the time to make sure it was really good quality.
I enjoyed making it so much that I wanted to do more! I thought of some more ecard ideas, then Nick and I got to work. We set about making plans to create our own animated Ecards website, 18 months later we launched: katiescards.com with just 25 cards and have steadily been adding more to the collection over the years. We now have over 180 in the collection, for all sorts of occasions such as birthdays, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s day, Mothers day, Fathers day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Independence day, St Patrick’s day, engagement, wedding day, anniversary, new baby, new home, Canada day and many more!

I feel very fortunate that I am able to combine the things I love – art, being creative, environmental issues and working with Nick. I studied sculpture at university, after graduating I went on to become an art director for film and TV. When I became a mother, I decided I wanted to take a step back from my career so that I could bring up our children Molly and Joe. Now that the children are older and turning into young adults, I have more time, so Katies Cards came along at just the right time for me.
I enjoy tennis, art, film, traveling and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy taking long walks with our Jack Russell 'Plum'. I love making e cards and genuinely wish to make you and your loved ones feel special when one of our cards is sent. My favourite card is the birthday fireworks e card.
I regularly update my blog: http://ecards.katiescards.com/, with Katies Cards news, lifestyle tips and ideas and information on our upcoming cards.
