Now, for the highlights (in order of my preference):
Furry Friends (designer: Jenny Barton) Cute cats and dogs in bright colours with bones around the border (for the dogs) and fish bones (for the cats)
Roses and Bows (designer: Susan Bates) Topiary designs, good for Mother's Day (or even a 'girlie card' for a dear friend's birthday).
Feng Shui (designer: Sue Page) These are very true depictions of flowers with traditional oriental styles 'joy', 'love', 'friendship' - an excellent idea for a general all-year-round greeting card. I think they may take quite a few hours to stitch ...
His and Hers (designer: Debra Page) Lovely bright colours, cartoon-style, good enough for your Man! i.e. not too frilly or romantic. His-and-Hers Undies, Dancing Shoes, Sunday Brunch - hey the list is wonderful!
I used to subscribe to this magazine, then the designs were not so good for a while, so I swapped to Cross Stitch Gold - then Card Shop improved - isn't it just my luck!! Mind you I love Gold - its the Best!! So now I buy Card Shop when I see something I like in it.
