Storm Imogen and Valentines Winner Announced

Sea, Seaside, Blackpool, Storm Imogen

Yesterday the sun was shining on the North West and I decided that my Sunday stroll should be beside the sea as I hardly get the chance to venture towards the promenade unless I am driving up to Fleetwood or Lytham.

When I arrived it was oh so windy with Storm Imogen rolling into town! The tide was in so there was some crashing waves but not as many now we have the ‘spanish style steps’ that lead down into the sand from the promenade. I love to watch the sea but to get this shot I had to steady my hands on the railings and within minutes my glasses were awash with the salty sea air.

On Friday I launched my very first competition to win a letterpress Valentine’s Day Card and the response was overwhelming. I heard lots of romantic love stories on the blog as well as gaining lots of new interest over on Facebook and Twitter so thank you to everyone who took part.

The winner of the competition is…. Lorraine Brown! (Entered via Facebook) Don’t worry if you did not win this time. I will be holding more competitions over the next few weeks with Mothers Day on the horizon. If you do want to buy any of my letterpress cards they are over on Folksy.

Are we ready for the week ahead and storm Imogen?

Win a Valentines Letterpress Card

02 05 16

Valentine's Day, Letterpress, Hand PrintedIts that time of the year again when we linger maybe more so than usual around the letterbox in hope that a secret admirer or loved one has sent a little something through the post.

I have to say its one of my favorite times of year and I can remember as a child being so excited when I returned home with my own hand made card for my parents. These days I am still making my own Valentine’s Day cards but this time its with the letterpress and usually for lots of other people!

When sending Valentines and Birthday Cards out to customers I try to make sure they arrive at the destination well padded so if the recipient of said card lives in the same house it doesn’t ruin the surprise.

Like all of my letterpress cards this one is simple and to the point – the ‘I Love You’ is in Gill Sans Type and the white un-coated card stock is complimented by the brown C6 envelope.

For the first time on my blog I am running a competition to win one of these cards. To enter all you need to do is comment below with a love story or re-post this link/image to social media with the hashtag #ilovechiefsquirrel. I will pick a winner on Monday and send it out the same day to ensure you get it in time! Good Luck!
