This hand-illustrated card features a colourful quilt pattern with “Mum” in the centre. Quilting is a popular hobby in Canada and pioneer women used to get together to have quilting bees, where they would all work on a quilt together. Often the pieces are sentimental and made from old clothing or blankets, reworked into something new and beautiful. Mother’s are somehow always able to make things special and this card is a lovely way to tell your mum how special she is to you.
Papa fox is all settled into his favourite armchair with a cup of tea and a good book. It looks like he’s having such a relaxing day that he’s fallen asleep!
These red-squirrels are having a tree-party (see what I did there?). It looks like the last guest has arrived just in time for cake. Penelope is always running late, but at least she hasn’t forgotten her gift, an acorn tied with red ribbon.
50 pence from each card sold will be donated to the Scottish Wildlife Trust to go towards their program to save Scotland’s red squirrels. You can read more about their efforts here: scottishsquirrels.org.uk
What a cheeky bear! He’s come lumbering through the forest and thought he was the luckiest fellow there ever was when he found all the delicious snacks these campers left out. He and his magpie friend are especially enjoying the chocolate chip cookies and just want to say thanks a bunch for the treats!
Scotland is full of the fantastic and wonderful if you're willing to look. We love walks in the woodlands and the moors, hunting for treasures like feathers and wishing stones, spotting wildlife, having picnics and dreaming about living with the selkies.
