OK, so Father’s Day has really crept up on me this year. Last night I realised that it’s just over two weeks away! Has it crept up on you too? Here in Australia we celebrate the big day on the first Sunday in September. My family always celebrate by heading to this beautiful spot for a barbeque breakfast and a walk through the bush. How do you celebrate Father’s Day?
It’s not too late to get your hands on a cool, creative card for Dad. Here’s a few of my favourites.
Able & Game // The Curious Cactus // Beccy Kitty Designs // Milk and Cookies // WNK The Shop // Old English Co // The Think Tree // Cheerio Paper Co
I am smitten by these cards from Felicity French. Her illustrations are all so magical and bright and full of happy thoughts and messages.
Not only is she a card and print designer extraordinaire, but she also illustrates children’s books and colouring-in books. How awesome!
Here are some of my favourite designs by Felicity. Be sure to visit her website to see more loveliness.
You can follow Felicity on Twitter and Facebook.
Croatian artist Mateja Kovač really knows how to beautifully capture simple, every day moments. She is definitely my favourite new artist.
Every girl should be classy and fabulous
Whispers in the wind
Two years ago I featured the gorgeous animal art of the super talented illustrator Ashley Percival. His animal illustrations have a kind of laid back, magical quality that would work so well in a nursery or kid’s room (or grown-ups room too – I’m a big fan of this one!).
I was so happy that Ashley got in touch last week to let me know that he had a bunch of limited edition prints available on his Etsy store. They are, of course, so lovely and would make a great inclusion in anyone’s art collection. Oh and they are perfect Christmas pressies too. Want to win one? Keep reading!
This one has been exhibited on the London Tube!
Owl of the Night.
Christmas cards too!
Ashley has also designed a range of Christmas cards featuring his animals that will be sold online and off (the range will be hitting Paperchase very soon).
Win! Win! Win!
Ashley has graciously offered to send 4 limited edition prints (of your choice) to one of you very lucky readers! There are a few ways to enter so get cracking! (Ashley will send the prints anywhere in the world too. Thanks Ashley!)

I’m an animal lover and I have a very special place in my heart (and home) for kitties which is why I just love these illustrations from Matou En Peluche. Are you a cat person too?
1. Didier and Leon.
2. Polly and her kitten.
3. Fan Boy.
I was stoked to see some of the new bits of loveliness from Quill & Fox on Pinterest yesterday. Beautiful colours. Beautiful illustrations (as always). They are in stock so get yours at the Quill & Fox shop pronto.
