From 2009 up to 2014 I was making special decks hand painted with glitter and iridescent paints. I am NOT PRESENTLY MAKING THEM. They are very labor intensive and I just had to take a serious break from all that fine work. If I do any more in the future they will be posted on my Divine Sparks of Light page.  

How To Order link

All prices are in US dollars and payments must also be in US dollars, USD.

If you want to order  deck, first send us an email to confirm availably and shipping cost, for that we need your zip code (USA) or country location.

PayPal is required for all orders outside the USA. we accept both PayPal and checks for USA orders.  You can NOT order directly from our site. I will send you the invoice of PayPal after the order is confirmed by personal emails.

I always combine shipping on multiple item orders if possible. Shipping in the USA is by priority mail with insurance. whenever possible I use flat rate shipping if I can, and add insurance. Due to security policies of Paypal for packages sent outside the USA, all must have insurance and tracking and the only way to get that is by Express Mail. It is expensive, I use flat rate if possible which is currently $59.50.  You do get reliable and fast service with that option.

Happy Customers:

I received the pouch yesterday & the cards today...they are gorgeous!!
Each card is like a piece of art!! I almost want to display them in a frame!!
I love the blending of the colors, and how they change with the light...also the smaller sparkles look perfect! They just add extra depth to the layering of color!!
I could not have asked for a more beautiful set of cards made just for me!! And they arrived on my birthday!! Oh the pouch is perfect as well!
Thank you so very much Carol!!
