My new card range will soon be on its way to the NEC Autumn Fair

Hello! I'm so excited and delighted that I can finally reveal the range of 18 greeting cards I've been working on for the past few months. These designs really had become part of my daily life for a quite while, I feel a little bit lost not to be working on them...ho hum, I'm sure preparing for the lead up to Christmas will fill that void!
Below are a taster from the range entitled 'Life is Sweet' which has been commissioned by a fantastic publishing company called The Heart of a Garden. I'm so pleased to be working with The Heart of a Garden as I love their photographic ranges and believe in their ethics when it comes to greeting card production.
For the full range, check out the new 'coming soon' button on the side of this blog - it will take you through to the complete range in my new look, online portfolio (yes, I've been a very busy lady lately!)....
Hope you enjoy having browse. Some of the designs you may recognise as prints that have been available in my Folksy shop.
Have a great weekend!

Bloomin' Lovely!...

Hello, its been a little while since my last blog post, sorry about that. I'm blaming the school holidays!...I've been trying to find lots of ways to keep my daughters occupied and happy without spending a fortune everyday.

Luckily the weather has been fairly kind, added to which our garden is looking bloomin' lovely at the moment...all full of colour - just as I like it!. I've been getting the girls doing lots of painting and craft stuff in the garden. I even managed to get them so engrossed in their paintings that they didn't notice that I was busily creating a few watercolours of my own. It was sheer bliss... nothing beats a bit of sketching in garden in the sunshine whilst the kids are busy and quiet!

Here are the fruits of that labour....

I've also been very busy finishing off a range of 18 greetings card designs for a publishing company. They are planning to launch the range on their stand at the NEC's Autumn Fair at the beginning of Sept. I've spent the past couple of months slotting in a couple of designs a week around my usual workload and I'm feeling slightly giddy this week as I finished the last design of the range at the weekend - woo hoo!

I've adapted one of the designs from this range into a new framed print, which is now available on my Folksy shop :

I hope you're all enjoying the summer too. I'm really enjoying seeing lots of pictures on blogs of allotments and gardens looking abundant and glorious!
