The Card Shop


I’m so jealous Sydneysiders. If you’re luck enough to live —> over there you can go and visit a cool new store called The Card Shop. Owned by UK marketing company Chilli Marketing, The Card Shop has just opened in the Warringah Mall, Brookvale.

From the looks of things they stock a lot of cards covering everything from personalised wedding invites, birthday cards, thank you’s, save-the-dates and just because cards. All of the cards are designed internally by UK-based designers Sally Young and Kerry Warwick. They also stock a ‘Handcrafted’ range from the Northern Beaches creative artists Anita Waters (Photography by Anita), and Sue Punton (A Card Act To Follow) that sit alongside a stunning contemporary collection from Vogue Magazine photographer, Helen Cathcart.

The cards are all printed locally on recycled paper and range from $4.95 – $5.95 in price or 3 cards for $12. They are only available in store at the moment (boo!) but an online store is coming soon (yay!)

Rigel Stuhmiller Dog Cards

As a freelance writer I’ve been lucky enough to write a number of articles for Dogs Life magazine – which works out well because I love dogs. In fact, if I had my way I’d surround myself with cute furry friends all day.

I’ve been so blessed to share some of my life with some awesome dogs including my dearly departed pooch Benny who was with me for 11 years. At the moment, we are a one cat household, but we’ll have another dog join us one day I’m sure.

Are you a dog lover? If you are I think you’ll adore these letterpress greeting cards by Rigel Stuhmiller.
