I ended up purchasing several recipe cards and note cards from etsy (from the same seller). I couldn't pass them up, as I thought they were cute. I ended up having them personalized. I can't wait to start sending some of them out. I might try using the quill and ink I purchased from another etsy store. I have never used a quill though, but excited to start, just don't want to leave a lot of blotted ink when I write or worse spill it.
