Valentines Day, love and kisses

Valentines Day is not long away and over the last couple of weeks there has been a sudden rise in the sale of my 'lovey dovey' papercuts.  So I thought I would feature the best sellers, with the best being the first one shown here.  I think one reason this one is the most popular (apart from it being a very romantic quote) is that it can be subtly personalised with the initials of the couple within the heart design as shown.  This can be done at no extra cost.

Most of the papercuts I sell are ordered in the white card, but there has also been an increase in the number of requests for .......guess what.....scarlet coloured card.

Rainbows and double rainbows!

Christmas over and the new year starts.  Looking forward to all that 2012 offers!  

During our holiday, we spent a few days travelling to see family in Yorkshire and Northumberland.  I always love visiting this part of the UK - its so beautiful and dramatic.  This time, I saw something I have never witnessed before.  A rainbow and then a double rainbow.  I got so excited and tried taking photos from my phone.  These pictures do not do justice to what we saw.  We even drove past to what looked like the 'bottom' of the rainbow (no sign of any gold).  Another first for me.  I was like a kid bouncing around in my seat.  My kids were at the back and looked up from playing games on their phones and said 'yes, mum, very exciting' and continued with they games promptly.
