Christmas Cards

Winter Animals Christmas Cards 2013 by Hannah Foley ( morning we went elderberry picking for another one of Big Dreamer’s home-brewing projects. The hawthorn bushes up the lane are already a lovely yellow and full of red berries. The air was damp and mild. It felt very autumnal. As always, the best elderberries were just out of reach so Big Dreamer climbed up into the trees to bend the branches down for us to collect them.

We also gathered a few pounds of apples from the farmhouse garden. These apples are absolutely horrible to eat. They are solid as rocks and the shock of their bitterness on your teeth turns a person rigid. These will be going to chutney. I’m not allowed to say any more about that because Big Dreamer has plans to enter the resulting chutney in his family’s annual Christmas Chutney Challenge (they have a cup and everything!) so I mustn’t give his secrets away.

My Christmas cards are back from the printers and available to buy. You might recognise the design from a wedding invitation I did last year. It was so popular I decided to turn it into a card. A pack of ten cards with accompanying envelopes is £4.99. The cards are A6 in size (landscape) and read Happy Christmas inside. You can see a bigger picture of the design on my website here. If you’d like to purchase some of my Christmas cards please email me at:

My limited edition hare prints have now sold out so I have produced some cards. These cards are blank inside and measure 125mm square. I am selling these individually at £2.25 each. Again, you can see bigger images on my website here. Please email me if you would like to purchase some. If you live locally these cards, and individually wrapped Christmas cards, are also available to buy from the Summerhall shop in Edinburgh and will soon be in the Flat Cat Gallery in Lauder.
