This is a one of a kind hand-painted and handmade cardholder,

that once belonged to a big beautiful original canvas artwork by Kim Miatke.

Now the joy is spread across a small number of unique cardholders.

No two are the same. They share the same name but all look

a bit different and have their own number.


Here is the story of this artwork.

Our hope is that it will speak to your heart as much as the art

delights your eyes.


Sweet Surprise

Often times life can feel hard or unmovable, a situation unchangeable or hopeless, the atmosphere heavy or dark, the ideas or inspiration not flowing. Until, from out of nowhere an unexpected delight, a fabulous result, a kind word, a surprise visit, a fresh new idea or an incredible breakthrough - that is sweet surprise!


This is what this artwork carries, sweet surprise.  My hearts desire is that you will know and experience sweet surprises beyond the norm as you carry this piece.

with love & joy

Here's some tips on how to love me well:

(ie. care instructions)



- take me out to dinner

- take me shopping

- gently wipe me with a damp cloth if I get a bit dirty

- take me to the movies

- take me on a date

- show me off to your friends #kimmiatkeart

- fill me with heaps of cards



- take me swimming, I won’t survive underwater

eg. washing machines and I aren’t friends

- leave me at the shops, someone might take me home

- pop me in the fire or any other high heat environment

eg. a hot car, next to or on a heater - I will melt

- let your dog play with me, he will win, I cannot fight back

- use me as a frisbee

- forget to take me out on your girls night

- forget to photograph me and tag me #kimmiatkeart

with love & joy

Sweet Surprise Card Holder #01

  • Cardholders are made from original canvas artwork, protected by a plastic outer coating and lined with 100% cotton fabric. 


    Each cardholder is hand made and will have minor variations.

    Outer plastic will scratch over time with use.  It is not scratch resistant.


    Do not expose to high temperatures, leave in a car or in full sun.

    Do not immerse in water. Spot clean only with a damp cloth.


    Colour may vary slightly from monitor to monitor, screen to screen, and there may be minor differences in colour between on-screen images and actual product.  Often times, the product will  appear richer in real life.
