I'm A Hand Cut Card

Well, my response to all the disbelieving comments from Angry Lady on my last blog post, could only really be hand cut...








In other (much more important) news, I am still busily cutting away. Things haven't really slowed down since Valentine's Day which is brilliant. Lots of personalised orders from an 85th birthday card to a Bar Mitzvah celebration card, and it is most definitely wedding and new baby season! I'm also looking forward to some more exciting press coverage in the near future too. Watch this space!

I Love You More Than Burgers

It's quite a declaration, I know, but a lovely Storeyshop customer made it recently. And in style with a hand cut poster version of my 'I love you more than burgers' card design. I am loving the bigger A4 version so, before popping it in the post, I tried it out in a frame...






I have added a close-up of the burger detail complete with drawing-pin-stabbed sesame seeds on top. Yum!



Also, introducing Ken the svelte and refined new porcelain face of Storeyshop. You may well be seeing more of him around my shop and blog in the near future. He came from a charity shop in Shoreham-by-sea but has settled in to the wilds of Northumberland very well indeed. Have a great weekend everyone!

There is a new 'I love you more than .... (you fill in the blank)' poster listing in Storeyshop now so do get in touch if you would like one.

I Want Wednesday!

Have missed a few lately but 'I Want Wednesday' is back. Inspired by these amazing hand embroidered cushion covers I spotted on Etsy earlier today. I have fallen in love and had to get them on here. They are the creations of sukan. How nice are they?!

Best Package of Goodies Ever!

Look what delights I discovered on my doormat this afternoon! The lovely Sami of Teasemade had a giveaway on her blog last week to celebrate her birthday and I won. Woo hoo! I excitedly opened up my package and the goodies just kept on coming. Gorgeous, amazingly hand-stitched Teasemade accessories, the cutest badge ever, brilliant cards (including the beautiful bird card below by Bonbi Forest), little Easter ornaments AND chocolate. What more could a girl wish for?


















Thank you so much again, Sami! You've made my week. Can't wait to wear my necklace and ring. And eat my rabbit's head off!

Happy Birthday Little Bro!

OK, he's not so little anymore but he is 27 today. Happy Birthday! I cut him a card yesterday while the sun was out. I'm liking grey at the moment so went for a grey and dark blue number. Oh, and I had to add a little pic of him in the old days (and so he doesn't kill me, the photo that was taken a few seconds before that one, of yours truly)!
