Tickled Pink!

A couple of days ago we managed to squeeze in a fourth card for our 2012 Valentine’s collection from District Dogs Designs. We brought some samples to a Vancouver store called, Bird On A Wire Creations, located on Main corner Broadway Street.

This evening, we witnessed a lady entering the store pushing a buggy in front of her, heading straight for the card stands! We held our breath as we watched her pick up one of our cards featuring a Valentine’s Owl!  She eyed it and turned it over a couple of times, then she put it back! My heart sank, but then she picked up the one featuring a Tree!  And this time she walked to the till with it! One of O.U.R cards.  I cannot tell you how excited and proud we felt! To top it all, the owner of the store, introduced us to her! Tickled Pink!!!

    Awesome letterpress! Do you do it yourself?

      Thank you! Well, it’s team work. My husband and I design. He needed a creative outlet and talked me into buying a Chandler & Price letterpress late last year. Our website http://www.districtdogsdesigns.com will somewhat serve as a journal of our design adventures! We’re working on a few things right now and hope to post something soon…

    How beautiful to be tickled pink on Valentines Day. A lovely story, I know that feeling where someone picks your work then puts it back. A great ending. Cheers Sue

      Thank you! Guess what? The same store asked for more cards a few days later telling us that they don’t need to be sold specifically for Valentine’s! So yes, tickled pink!
