A note to say

Well, here I am at the beginning of November and the year has absolutely raced by. In this last 12 months, I have designed a new website, (by Everon, not me!), had all the lifestyle product photography taken by Abby Monroe, www.abbymonroe.co.uk , Janet Penny, http://www.janetpenny.com with extra stock images by Lucie of White Hart Design Co, https://whitehartdesign.co/, thought about, pondered, created, re-done, re-done again and again new designs, ranges and collections, and this week, I think, I may have finally caught up with myself.

New cards for Valentine's Day

The cards feature heartfelt messages to gentle declarations. As there is no reference to Valentine's Day on the back of the cards, you can send these cards at any time of the year!
