**{ NEW )** Christmas Card collection

'Tis the season!! 

I am very busy preparing for my Christmas fairs but wanted to quickly pop by and show you all our new Christmas card collection!

I will be at a few fairs during November in the East Yorkshire and surrounding area selling lots of lovely stocking fillers for Christmas alongside my new Christmas card and gift wrap collection. 
10% of sales from Christmas cards will be going to Kickstart - a local charity very dear to my heart.

My friend Emily sadly lost her battle with leukemia a few years ago and her mum recently set up the charity in her memory to help 16-24 year old teenagers and young adults with cancer in the local area through their treatment and 'kickstart' their lives again :)
 
Your support would be so greatly appreciated in helping us raise money for such an amazing charity, so thank you in advance! 


Cards are £1.00 each or mix & match 8 for £6.50
to order please email sarahfleming11@hotmail.com or via Sarah Fleming Designs

Bishop/Nicholson wedding invitations


Here's a little snapshot of the latest wedding invitations I have designed and made.
The grey/pale pink/navy colour palette makes them look so fresh and clean, which I love! The faint floral pattern gives a delicate, summery feel with the pretty diamantes adding that special sparkle that every wedding needs! 

If you are interested in having bespoke wedding or party invitations created, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Head over to Sarah Fleming Designs or email me at sarahfleming11@hotmail.com - I would love to hear from you!
