new card designs!

there's nothing like a long rainy week for pulling on your favourite jumper, listening to the radio and getting down to some serious drawing!

so i've been getting some new designs together, you can see a couple of my new cards right here, i hope you like them?

i've also been busy doing a couple of commissions... this print for a lovely friend has taken a good few days but i'm pretty pleased with how its turned out:

i ordered some beautiful Schminke metallic inks for it - this one is copper, which is hard to see in the picture but has the most beautiful sheen to it!

so i'm hoping for a tiny bit more sunshine this weekend... my garden needs some serious tlc! hope you have a lovely few days to come!

a busy week....

well its been all go here at autumn jitters! so lovely to finally be sitting down with a cup of tea and listening to the thunder and lightning outside...

we just came back from a walk at hay tor as the rain rolled in below us, stopped in at the farm shop for bread cheese and chutney and coffee with friends, their pup dreaming at our feet, glad to be warm...

....after an exciting morning! autumn jitters now have a new stockist in beautiful bovey tracey, right here in devon! the gift shop Teazle and Margaret are selling both my printed and hand-printed cards! so do pop in if you find yourself round this way - bovey is full of delights for makers, from the best yarn shop in the world, to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and, in june, a fantastic contemporary crafts festival!

and, earlier this week, the garden superhero card was featured in this beautiful etsy treasury curated by bethan buss of boodle boutique, bristol!

you can visit this treasury here... and bethan's gorgeous etsy shop here..., i'm looking forward to sinking back into the sofa, watching a film and listening to the rain...
