I wanted to focus on greetings cards today and post up a the latest selection of cards spotted in my local branch of Sainsbury's. There are some that are cute and colourful and others that feature stylish muted florals. In Sainsbury's stores now.

CHRISTMAS CARDS - hannah day

I know it's early for Christmas designs but these lovely cards came in via email this week and I could not resist posting them up today. Hannah Day has released her new collection of festive cards. There are three designs in each pack coupled with Hannah's own font created from paper cut work. The hot colours are designed to lift your spirits as we enter winter. All her work is printed in the UK and is recognisable not just for their rich vibrant colours but her use of layering and a reduction of design details until they reach a charm born out of simplicity. Head over to her Etsy Shop here, or Instagram account @hannahdayuk to see more work......

Hannah also released a new collection of three abstract art pieces this Summer. All her work is printed in the UK on textured watercolour paper using the Giclee process leading to rich vibrant colours. The prints and cards are all available in her  Etsy Shop.
