New things in my web shop # 2: Lisa Jones Greeting Cards

As soon as I saw Lisa Jones' brilliant greeting card designs I fell in love with them. She is influenced by Scandinavian folklore, 20th century pottery and vintage illustration.

I love the use of vintage fabric and wallpaper patterns on the Kapok Creatures range, and the references to 1970s hand-made toys.

This hand-printed 'Fingers Crossed' card is also a favourite, as it reminds me of old shop advertising, and is a really nice way to send a good luck message.

But the best of all, Lisa's cards are either hand-printed by her, or printed on 100% recycled card using vegetable inks.

See the full range in my shop!

I was just looking at your shop for the first time. I love everything! I wish there was store in So Calif that sold your stuff.

Hi Allison this is actually Sharaine, I work for Linda in the shop during the week! Didn't take too much convincing to get her to agree to the blog - especially once she knew people like you and three buttons had one!

Would love to do a feature on you... maybe in the next week or so? My email is on my blog :)
