Do you have any idea of what you want franch?

franch Fri 05-Aug-05 17:32:25

Open to suggestions, design-wise - what are my options?? Need to keep the cost down, obviously

Dingle Fri 05-Aug-05 17:35:51

Any preference on sytle, I could do the little sizzix bitty babies quite cheap on a small basic card. I am willing to get together a few samples and work out prices for you. How many do you need?

franch Fri 05-Aug-05 17:38:06

Don't know what sizzix bitty babies are but they'd need to be brown Would need about 40

Dingle Fri 05-Aug-05 17:43:33

franch, they could be whatever colour you want my love!They would be made however you wanted, within reason!

If you are interested in seeing a few ideas, CAT me or email dinglescards at yahoo.co.uk and I will email you a few ideas.

They're very nice but a bit pricey for me - those prices are per card? Need to keep things very simple I'm afraid

franch -- are you creative at all? if so you could get some blank cards cheaply or even cardstock and fold it. then you could design and make your own. or one of us with a sizzix can cut you out some baby bits and you could stick them on your card. a peel off sticker saying thaks will complete your card and are also cheap to buy and come on sheets.

I have been thinking about doing this myself but with an 18mo to entertain and only 4 weeks to my due date I can't really see when that would happen!

champs Tue 09-Aug-05 15:20:04

hmmmm, have you found any yet? I remember seeing some in wh smith but they were in a small pack and not the cheapest option. the only other places i've seen are clintons and birthdays.

franch Tue 09-Aug-05 15:25:30

Looks like Dingle may be sorting me out

champs Tue 09-Aug-05 15:27:41

brilliant!! her work is great.
I would have offered to help you out but baba is due anytime now and didn't want to disapoint you at last minute.

franch Tue 09-Aug-05 19:49:03

Thanks champs

Am I right in thinking you live in N London?

champs Tue 09-Aug-05 21:33:05

yep

franch Wed 10-Aug-05 14:12:53

We have a mutual friend, dont we - the lovely MarsLady? Didn't realise you were pg too. Mine's due 5 Sept. I'm sure we'll meet sometime. Good luck

Dingle Wed 10-Aug-05 14:40:03

franch, sorry to pester, but did you get my email last night. I tried a tiscali addy which came back with an error, so I tried another one!

franch Wed 10-Aug-05 14:59:59

Not pestering at all Dingle, I got it and have just replied. My other email address (email at my name.com) is the best one to use.

champs Wed 10-Aug-05 23:11:01

yes Franch, lovely Marsy!! she did give you a glowing report when i went to see her.

franch Thu 11-Aug-05 13:48:37

Awww. Maybe we can all meet up with our broods sometime.

champs Thu 11-Aug-05 15:23:45

yep would be lovely, I'm overdue a visit to marsy.

franch Thu 11-Aug-05 18:40:35

What's your due date then champs? Looks like I'm seeing Mars on 22nd - will you have popped by then?

champs Fri 12-Aug-05 13:42:36

hopefully but will prob be a while till I venture out.

franch Fri 12-Aug-05 13:58:16

Of course. Was thinking if you were due after that it might be a nice break for you (I def need to fill my nearly-due days to avoid going insane). Well good luck - I guess you must be due imminently - see you with our new additions sometime soon I hope

champs Fri 12-Aug-05 14:07:50

yep today or tomorow by my dates, next week by hosp dates!
