i wanted to finish the week with some everyday greetings cards that i have been wanting to post before we get into the valentine's day design next week. these are from the mark's and spencer's personalised range by tigerprint which enable to add a name of message into the design before it prints. print & pattern readers can get 50p off per card with this code MNSFIFTY which will also work next week when we do valentine's cards. see more designs online here.
