"The perfect birthday card doesn't exi..."

YES IT DOES! This is the PERFECT card to send to anyone (not just Dave) for their birthday this year. It features Trigger from Only Fools and Horses who was well known for getting Rodney's name wrong all the time - calling him Dave! So send this card to anyone - it only makes it funnier if they're not called Dave. But by all means send it to your Dave's too.

Plus each sale helps to fund tree planting in reforestation projects too!

Last orders for expected Christmas delivery

The last date that you can order from embersandink.co.uk for expected Christmas delivery is the 16th December 2021. I will then post on the 17th December 2021.

Colour Friday is coming! This year, instead of Christmas shopping on boring Black Friday, put the colour back in your life by shopping with indie businesses on the newly-named Colour Friday! It's a thing! DID YOU KNOW: Shockingly, half of all UK small businesses are genuinely worried about not surviving in 2022 (How the heck they'll be able to afford their trip into space AND pay their taxes, who knows.) 90% of Brits polled by Holly & Co in 2021 claimed they care about the future of small independent businesses. Put this together and what have you got? The potential for some real social change, that's what. Amazon, Dyson, Shein and Currys will survive this year if we don't buy...
