Adding a third column to our Blogger blog!

... just braved it and had a go at adding a third column (on the right) to our blog to showcase our cards!

I made sure though that before I started altering the HTML that I made a backup of the Blogger template... just in case.

I was very pleased when I finally clicked on save to see it had worked, although I still have to alter the column sizes and our logo size as it now looks to narrow at the top of the blog.

After much research I found that this website helped with the codeing.

Monsieur Boudin Cards by Lab Partners

Due in soon at Purple Greetings Cards... the full range of delightful Monsieur Boudin everyday greetings cards by Lab Partners.

Every now and then, you are introduced to a character who is erudite, has charm, wit and is worldly. You may be left feeling a little insecure about who you are and how you conduct yourself or you may feel inspired to put on your best shoes and step forward into the world with a little more joie de vivre. Well as they say, "we give you Monsieur Boudin" that stylish little daschund from Paris.

... how exciting! These adorable cards are great to give or just as great to keep and frame! I am actually struggling to choose a favourite, I think I love them all as each card has it's own special little something which makes me smile!

Unusual Cards from iBride

... just sourced, unusual cards from iBride.

iBride's products are created by 3 members of the same French family. The inspiration for each item comes from both the very close environment and travels around the world. The word 'ibride' itself is a play on words in French meaning 'hybrid', and many of the pieces combine several forms and several functions. Is it the form or function of each piece that defines it or the hybrid meeting point that make it difficult to define?

Mondays child...

I have just made this up using a lovely vintage look childish True Type font called Later On. I eventually would like to add a line drawing of a swing or tree perhaps!

... now at 38 weeks pregnant, this dear little rhyme has been on my mind rather a lot!
