Tree Hugger: a person with strong environmental beliefs who embraces eco-conscious living and all that is good for the earth and its inhabitants. There are a lot of good reasons to love trees, whether for their majesty and diversity as living creatures or because of their crucial role in the global ecosystem. Trees for the Future (TFTF) has helped rehabilitate environments across the globe by planting nearly 65 million trees since 1988. Amber Lotus Publishing is proud to be a partner in this wonderful program.

Partnering with Travis Bone, the creative genius behind Furturtle Show Prints, has been a delight. We first discovered his screen prints while researching images for our Gig Posters Wall calendar (his Girl Talk Poster is included in the 2013 edition). Travis is a prolific creator of logos, snowboard and ski graphics, labels for bottles, drawings for clothing, and all manner of illustrations for a myriad of purposes. His art has translated brilliantly into an exciting new line of holiday and occasional greeting cards.
In addition to the Holiday series we are also excited to offer these new occasional cards. Go Forth Boldly | Cat-Fish Birthday | Red Fox Birthday | Magical Mermaid
These cards will be available for purchase in July online at www.amberlotus.com or at your local retailer.
