I was asked by my sister to make some cards for her to give to someone as a Christmas gift, and here’s what I came up with.
8 Doily-themed notecards in heavy Champagne Laid acid-free card stock, with 8 Pistachio Matrix Embossed luxury envelopes.
Presented within handmade boxed-packaging made from heavy leaf embossed stock.
I was pleased with how these turned out so I decided to make them available in my shop.
As much as I love my two little people and my husband, I also crave time to myself. No interruptions. No television. And if I’m lucky enough to get lost in something I’ve wanted to do for a while, I even forget to eat. (Being a woman who has no time to exercise, that can only be a good thing).
So today, I have been sat at my Mac since 9:30 am and I have only moved to make 3 cups of coffee. The time is now 2:01 pm. Impressive. My wrist aches, my toes are bent upside down on the floor (that makes no sense but I know what I mean) and my feet and hands feel like they’ve taken a vacation to the Baltic (I stole that phrase from my friend. She knows who she is). Despite these aches and shivers, I am content. All because I have had some time to myself. Simple, really. But time is rarely on my side, which is why I’m making such a big deal out of this.
What have I been doing since 9:30 am this morning, you might ask? Well, let me update you.
A couple of weeks ago, a new friend was talking about her frustration in her search for personal notecards. You know the ones. Those small landscape notecards sporting some kind of little motif or pattern. The ones she liked were too much money for too few cards. Anyway, to cut a long story short, that is what I set my mind to this morning. Creating some notecard designs. And here they are. I think I’m pleased with them. I’ll have a think about it.
Oh, and while I was at it, I created some for another friend, as a little surprise. And she’s kindly allowed me to feature them right here. Thankyou Lady Ruddington.
Right. Time to stretch my legs.
