Doreen's Dreams

I set up Doreen's Dreams to raise money for Cancer Charities
you can find us here
Doreen's Dreams on facebook
so far we have raised £30 for Marie Curie and are at present helping to raise funds for
Samuels Childrens Charity on facebook
75p from each sale goes towards our chosen charity - and at present we have cards, bookmarks , calenders and keyrings in ther range.

I'm trying to get some advertising and letters printed in magazines so have taken these photos today
the top photo shows a box of 6 cards that I have made for an order - £4.50 from this sale is being donated to Samuels Childrens charity. As my Aunt loved butterfly each box will have a butterfly on it.

special offer

here at sunrisecards we pride ourselves on providing great customer service and keeping our prices reasonable
with that in mind - I was able to get hold of some Elizabeth Shaw mints at a cheaper price so I have a limited stock of mint bags that I am able to sell at a reduced price
in the photo the gold and silver ones have mints in them ( silver has milk chocolate mints - gold has dark chocolate mints ) the brighter coloured ones are chocolate coins
so for a limited time I can sell the mint bags for £1.50 per bag ( instead of £1.99 ) plus 99p postage  and the chocolate ones are also £1.50 - plus 99p postage although we do offer postage discount for multiple purchases

I am just waiting for a new order of pretzel bags to be delivered then it will be all systems go
if you would like to order any then contact me at
or visit
sunrisecards facebook page

we also have Halloween chocolate coin bags available - these are just 99p each plus 99p postage and again we can discount postage for multiple orders

only 3 months until Santa comes :)

so with that in mind we have started to think about Christmas here at Sunrisecards
with money being tight in a lot of households what about sending a family card rather than individual cards to each family member this year.
This card proved very popular last year and we can fit up to 5 stockings on it as it is one of our big A4 cards
each stocking can be personalised with a family members name 
this card is just £4.75 plus £1.75 postage 
and we have also entered it into a competition 

check out the  family christmas stocking card on this page

special occasion reminder service - one new year resolution you can keep !!

have you promised yourself you won't forget anyones birthday , anniversary etc this year then we're here to help you
We offer a reminder service so that you don't have to try and remember so many special dates that you need cards for.
This is how it works, you contact us with your list of dates that you will need cards for ( if possible give us some ideas for themes , colours etc ). We then enter it onto the reminder service. I use a big book and have a section for each month and add everyones requirements into the right month.
We then try and work a month in advance.
About 3 weeks before the card is needed we will make a mock up card without sticking anything down and send you a photo. Anything you don't like can then be changed quickly and easily until together we have created the 'perfect ' card.
We will then send you a money request and aim to get the card sent to you about a week before you need it.
Some of our customers have given us their whole year of dates but another has done it month by month , then at the end of the year we have the whole set of dates for the following year
