Almost unseasonal

Finding myself unemployed and almost penniless, I have actually managed to design a set of three Christmas images in time for the season. Nearly. Just one more to go. I'm going to be getting these printed up into bijou cards, and will be selling in sets of 6 and 12, so watch this space. Let me know if you'\re interested. They'll be no more than 6 UK pounds ($11.00 US) for a pack of 12 with envelopes and all, and three UK pounds ($5.50 US) for a pack of six. This is the start of my little card company I dreamt of a few years ago, Red Flannel Elephant - next year I'll be going full-wing.

'Three Kings'


'Angel Cat'

Due to a wave of nasty recurring headaches, (trepanning anyone?) I've been off the old PC for a bit. So apologies to my favourite blogs, if I haven't been round or commented. They are starting to clear up now, so normal service will resume shortly.

Love the cards Gretel! Good luck with them ... and hope the headaches get better too ... ;)

I've got a week away from work next week, we're going away (self catering) and am hoping to get all sorts of my own "stuff" underway. My brain hurts with all the ideas up there that I don't have the time (+ money) to get out! Fingers crossed I'll get at least some of it done xx

Hey Gretel - me thinks you need some faerie magick healing for that head of yours. Leave it with me - xoxo

Becky said...

Those are gorgeous Gretel, beautiful colours too, do the Three Kings have Three French Hens to go home to? :¬) I'm looking forward to seeing the third design too.

I hope your poor head feels better very soon and that you get some interesting and well-paid new commissions very soon. I could do with some as well.

Stunning, stunning cards, Gretel!

Sorry to hear about your headaches, and get well soon.

Hey Gretel - hope you are all better now! Love the idea of Christmas cards. I have a number of friends that I send chicken/rooster stuff to - (can I get sets with just fowl?) - so put me down as well.

Gordon Fraser said...

So sorry to hear your suffering from recurring headaches Gretel, have you tried Migraine Kool’n’Soothe They are soft gel sheets that you apply to the forehead and it immediately provides a cooling effect that last up to 6 hours, I can vouch they do work. Found this link that explains a bit better http://sauvigne.notlong.com they are about £3.00. And please put me on your list, I would like some of your lovely cards.

PG said...

What a lovely bunch of bloggie friends I have! Debs, thanks for that link, I may very well invest in some of those, better than shovelling paracetimal down me throat...

Becky said...

Hello again, I forgot to say, please add me (and my Mum too) to the list of people who'd snap up the Three Kings cards as soon as they're available! Looks like you're going to have to have a few print runs of those.
