A short break

Just a quick post to say that I'm taking some time off next week. The site will remain open, but I won't be despatching any orders between 19 - 27 February. I will be using the time to do some major re-organising of my office / other storage areas, which I can't do whilst also processing orders.

I will be despatching orders as normal until Friday 18 February, so if you need anything urgently, there's still time to order.

Many elements of the collection, including the papers, greetings buttons and colour me sheets are suitable for you to colour using the medium of your choice to create a really unique and personalised card. For example, you could use pro-markers, shimmer paints, inkpads, glitter glue, watercolour pencils, Copic markers or glitter gel pens.
You can pick and choose which elements of the collection you purchase, they will of course also co-ordinate beautifully with many other Craftwork Cards products.
