cards in production at last!

After much experimentation and struggling to understand and learn new computer programmes..not to mention getting the computer and printer to talk to each other!!...I have started production!

In a couple of days I'll have supplies of envelopes and cellophane wrappers, then they'll be going in my Etsy shop.

It is always surprising how much the presentation changes how you see the card and image.

Lets hope these catch the Spring/Easter market in the local shop, where they'll be selling at £1.75 each!!  Online they'll be £8.50 for five, with free P+P.

I've been going through my stock of images and quickly printing off ones that catch my eye.  Most of them seem more suited for exhibition or gallery work rather than for use as cards.    
This is teaching me how I look at things!!

While I've been busy printing, The Pirate has made a marvellous stirfry for supper..
it goes beyond words, to have someone to work with and who is willing to care for you and be cared for.    "caring is sharing.." as they say in New Zealand!

Very cool cards, there. Thanks for posting the images of them. I will be looking for them in your esty shop. Good luck with sales!


Good luck with the cards - they look really nice and so much better than the hugely expensive rubbish in the high street! I am with you on the computer/printer front, and you can throw in getting the hang of social media too! xCathy
