A Christmas Carol cards now in stock and enter my Xmas Cards Giveaway!

Little Women christmas card - SOLD!
I was amazed to realise that a whole week has already gone by since I posted about celebrating two sales from my Etsy shop. Doesn't time fly when you're not paying attention! In that time I have also now sold the first of my handmade greetings cards - thank you Paula! - and have received the parcel of yarns with which to make up a custom order of crocheted flowers I mentioned. It's going to be a busy week getting them all made up!

Today I made ten new Christmas cards from a 1950s edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I love a good ghost story for Christmas and this has to be the best. It felt great to be giving an old, worn book a new lease of life too, especially the few gorgeous John Leech illustrations I salvaged.

All the Christmas Carol cards I have made so far are now listed for your perusal along with others featuring part-pages from vintage Wuthering Heights, Little Women and The Yellow Wallpaper editions. I hope you like them! They are mostly £2.50 each, but if you just can't decide which ones you want to buy, I have also created a '5 for £10' listing. That's 20% off the single card price which, if I may say so, is an absolute bargain! Just be sure to use the Notes To Seller box to let me know the five cards you want.

And I you want a couple of my handmade cards, but don't want to pay for them then you are definitely reading the right blog post! I am currently running a giveaway over on Literary Flits and thought I would extend it over here too. The prize is the winner's choice of two cards from my shop.

2x Literary Greetings Cards giveaway

The Giveaway is open worldwide and previous giveaway winners are welcome to enter. Entries must be submitted through the Gleam widget by midnight (UK time) on the 19th October and I will randomly pick a winner on the 20th. If the winner does not respond to my email within 7 days, they will forfeit the prize and, yes, I will be checking that entrants did complete whatever task they said they did.

Good luck!
