Cat And Dog Baubles And Custom Christmas Cards For Handmade Monday

Another busy week of mainly Christmas related crafting, i did take some time out for a bit of pumpkin carving for Halloween though, i'll pop a pic at the end of the post!

Funny Cat And Dogs Baubles

Those with a good memory may remember the cat and dog themed Christmas cards i designed last year (follow the link to my Print and Paper Etsy shop for a reminder, they're available this year too!)

I've used this one as inspiration for a couple of new bauble designs - carolling cats,

and carolling dogs.

They are hand painted with porcelain enamel paint and can be personalised with a name or short message on the reverse side.

They are available to buy now from my website and Etsy shop priced £12.95. I hope they make you smile :)

Custom Christmas Cards - For A Short Time Only!

The other thing i wanted to tell you about today is an opportunity to buy my Winter Wonderland cards printed with a personalised message of your choice.

You can either choose from the four snowflake designs,

and have your personalised message spelled out in letter tiles like this.

Or you can choose from one of the six snow scene designs and have your message printed on a central panel like this (the Free Spirit Designs watermark will not appear on the finished cards)

The photographs of the actual cards give a clearer idea of how the colours turn out - here are the six designs available. 

The price per card is £2.49 (50p more than the price of a card without personalisation).

This offer is time sensitive as any custom cards will be added to an order of printed cards being dispatched to me at the end of the week. Please let me know by Thursday the 6th of November if you would like to place an order for a custom card - if you visit my Print and Paper shop on Etsy you will find the listing.

There is a possibility of further orders before Christmas, it really depends on how popular this idea is!
