You may have noticed that the window is looking a little bare as the papers have been moved to elsewhere in the shop. We haven,t run out of them yet. A table has been put in the window groaning with bargain priced cards. So hurry in and grab a deal and don,t miss out.


Sharon made this bendy card from a 12x12 card piece. She has used a Kaiser embellish pack to create interest and quite a few word pieces. As you can see the top fold is slotted into the 2nd fold which in turn folds into a slit in the back panel.

It is a bit hard to see in this photo, but there is a congratulations greeting on the back panel peeking through the flowers. The decorations are from a sparklelight  3d sheet and the flowers are suspended on strips of acetate. Again, hard to see but the theme is in green and white which gives it a fresh and delicate look. For those of you not familiar with box cards there are plenty of web sites with instructions on how to make them. They look a lot harder than they are to make.  The box squashes  up to fit into an envelope the same as a normal card.


These are some more lovely cards sent to the boss and staff thanking us for service over the years. It has been our pleasure to help you out with your questions and offer suggestions and solutions. We have met some wonderful people and made some fine friends.
Still no set date for closing yet.
 Still plenty of bargains to be had.

A very nautical take on this postcard. Of course to look at it you would just think it is a plain card and a great one for men, but no. This is a postcard which if you turned it over you would see that the reverse is printed ready for you to post off to the lucky recipient. See postcard image no. 1.
This card has utilised dies twine and some adhesive pearls to add interest.
