a card with a surprise

the car on this card is actually a magnet which can be stuck on a fridge or other magnetic surface once the card is finished with
at the moment I have cars, lizards or frogs available but am hoping to get some more designs to add to my collection
due to safety issues the magnet isn't suitable for children under the age of 3 and is not to be used as as a toy

getting ready for end of term

just made these ready for a card party we're having in June

we're also going to offer the wording thank you on the card and the teachers name on the bookmark providing its not too long
we'll put them on our website as well

mini chocolates for cardmaking

these are new on our website www.sunrisecards.co.uk
again I can't take the credit for them as my friend made them ( how clever is she !! )
the card isn't included its just there to give you an  idea of how to use them but if you would like a  card like it then just contact us with your requirements


how cute are these
with cupcakes being all the rage at the moment what more could you ask for than for cupcake themed earrings, my friend made them and has ideas for necklaces and bracelets as well 
although they look very tempting - they are not edible 

chocolate without the calories

I can't take the credit for these as my friend made them  out of fimo but as she doesn't have internet access I said I'd post some photos to get some feedback
all the items shown are for sale on our website
just for safety sake I need to point out that they are not edible

our latest braille / tactile card

this is for the same girl Lucy that we made our very first braille/ tactile card for and started us off exploring the world of braille/ tactile cards
I enjoy making these cards as I hope the recipient enjoys receiving a card made especially for them with different textures for them to feel.

special occasion reminder service

Just added a special reminder service to our website at www.sunrisecards.co.uk
we all lead such busy lives and its so hard to remember everything !! so why not let us take care of remembering all your special occasions.
If you give us a list of dates that you are going to need cards for and maybe some ideas of things that the people like then about 3 weeks before that date we will make a card up without sticking anything down and send you a photo of it.
Anything you don't like can then be changed quickly and easily until together we have created the 'perfect ' card.
Once you're happy with the card and payment is made then we will send the card to you in plenty of time for you to give it to the recipient.
If you find it hard to think of all the dates in the year then we can also do it month by month so that at the end of the year we have all the dates ready for the next year.
what a weight off your mind.

its nothing exciting but might be of some good to somebody 
I've put it all on my website 
the website was playing up so its in the online shop second from the bottom on the menu
nothing is over a pound but if you are interested in anything please contact me for a postage quote as some of the items are going to cost more than a card to post

Theres loads of bits on there so take a look and 
grab yourself a bargain !!

well with everyone feeling the pinch we thought we'd do something to help out
we've come up with a range of 'credit crunch ' cards 
They're just basic cards that are not personalised and we've kept the design as plain as possible to keep costs down.
We've also kept them as flat as possible to keep costs down if you're sending them through the post.
the photo shows a selection of what we have made but we can make them to most themes and colour schemes
They are only 75p each or you can choose 5 for £3 plus postage

But my second new year resolution is well on its way.
I wanted to get a more professional website up and running and thats exactly what I'm in the process of doing.
 is well on its way now and is exactly how I wanted it .
Feel free to take a look and let me know what you think , we appreciate feedback good and bad.

Well its been a while since I've been on here.
Christmas was mad !!!!!!!!!! we had so many orders flooding in so this year I'm going to be ultra organised and make my friends and family cards as soon as possible so that when the festive season comes around again I can concentrate on customer orders.
Already I've failed on part one of my new year resolution which was to start my christmas cards in January oops only a few more days to go and thats that idea out of the window, but I've got all my papers etc and know what design I want to make so thats better than nothing isn't it lol
