Love in a cold climate ..

Please forgive me if I have been a bit quiet of late... Thinking I could ease myself gently in to the new year..I realised.. in my usual..' last minute' style, that there was much to be done in the world of greeting cards designs.. Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Easter.. follow each other in quick succession and there is no time afforded for chewing my pencil and wondering what to do...
It is certainly the weather for snuggling up to a loved one.. and will soon be the season for blue-birds, doves, hearts and roses..
Cowboys & Custard productions has been beavering away at the old kitchen table.. and would like to present to you the latest Valentine cards...
Ta da!

On the wings of a Dove.. original love poem from a Victorian album.. printed dove on linen badge...Kiss me quick.. with a kitschy comic book kiss ..embellished with rhinestone heart..Don't beat about the bush... say it how it is...with I Love You, Crazy About You, Whole Lotta Love
Heart printed on linen badge....And finally... this one's for the boys..All of these cards can be found at my web shop at Not on the High Street....
Milly and I have also been rather preoccupied in the stockroom and new department at Milly & Dottie's Emporium..
The Dovecote is our latest collection of floral finds, love tokens and all things close to our hearts.. a little romance..Please drop in for a visit when you are passing..you never know what you may find!

M ~ I adore each and every card.

To design, actually make, sell and ship is so very difficult and really hard work.

You deserve to sell hundreds.

Gorgeous. My fave is the first one with the pinky love poem and the birdy brooch. You clever girl!

La Vie en Rose said...

Luvly jubbly blog, I am so glad I found it. I am an expat living in the USA and the longer I am here the more I crave Blighty. I am very sad that it costs so much to get Cath Kidston products shipped out here. Does anyone have any suggestions for where to find Cath's stuff or Bridgestone Pottery in the US?
BTW I am now stalking you!
