Cat Cards For Handmade Monday



Its been a mixed bag for me this week, mostly centred around early preparations for a certain mid-winter festival that's beginning to loom on the horizon... okay, i'll stop being cryptic, i've been trying to get organised for Christmas :) Some boring stuff like updating listings with 2013 last posting dates *yawn* and some fun stuff like working on new designs - there's a sneaky peak coming up, but first....


Cat Greetings Cards

Across the board my cat and dog designs are by far my most popular - great news for me as i love creating them! My pets have always made me laugh and my pet designs tend to be humorous and lots of fun to work on.

This week i want to show you some of my recently printed cat greetings cards. I look forward to hearing what you think of them! They will all be for sale individually from my website and Etsy shop soon, priced £1.85.

Happy Halloween Card








Miaow Miaow Miaow... Card







Black Cat Card and Kittens Card

I haven't had a chance to photograph these separately yet so here they are together.






Wash Day Card

Last but not least, one for the cat lovers and the dog lovers!






I currently only have one of each of these cards so if there is one you especially want, just let me know and i'll set it aside for you.



Christmas Cats

As i expect some of you already know, moo.com have a sale at the moment - 25% off all printed products until midnight tonight (Sunday 21st Sept). As  i'm using moo to print my cards, when i heard about the sale i thought, oooh, this is a great time to get my Christmas cards ordered! The only problem being that i hadn't started designing them yet... :/  Oh well, i've got a couple organised in time for the deadline. One of them i've called 'Carols For Cats', here's a sneaky peak...




I should be able to show you the design in full printed on some lovely new cards next week :)



In Other News...

Before i bid you farewell and take my weekly trip over to wonderful and ever popular Handmade Monday... here's a couple of links you might like.

You may remember a couple of weeks ago i told you about designing a website background for a lovely lady with a passion for tropical gardening - well, the So Eden blog and shop are up running now, so you can pop along for a nosey of you fancy it!

Secondly, if you're a pet lover like me you may already have heard of a rather fabulous website called Pets Pyjamas - they sell all kind of gorgeous pet related things and have a cute little pet owners community too. A little while ago they contacted me about listing my products and this week some of them are finally published on the site which is very exciting! Follow the link for the Free Spirit Designs range.

Have a wonderful week! x

  2. I am not at all surprised that your cats are so popular as they are really cute and appealing (even to me and I am not particularly gaga over cats). I can see all your cards being popular. I especially like the coloured cats one - bright and cheerful.

  6. Your black cat drawing is very appealing - it would make a good card for anyone celebrating the pagan festival of Samhain too, instead as Halloween!

  9. I do like the cats as well. My favourite is the Halloween cats, but do people sent Halloween cards? I'd prefer it without the print, as then it would be so handy as a Good Luck card.

      Hehe, that's true, probably not many people do! I do intend to get that design printed without the Halloween message too :) x

  16. I definitely prefer your cats to the ones that we have around here!
    Can't leave a door or window open for a second without having to follow up with a cat chasing session to get the blighter out! I wish cats stayed on cards then I might think they are as cute as they look
