Right so that's both Welcome Home and the pop up shop at CCA closed up for a Christmas break now... Hope you all enjoyed finding your presents and thank you for your custom and support in 2010! I'll be back at the beginning of January with news and excitement to start the year...

I LOVE these cards by Carolyn Alexander and so do many folk who have snapped them all up or at the very least enjoyed a good chuckle at them at the pop up shop recently... Looking forward to seeing what those haughty bitches bring in 2011!
