Announcing you’re pregnant? Say it with a card!

imageFor some time I have loved and admired the drawings of no-me, AKA British illustrator, artist and card designer Naomi Dawson.

Her simple, yet funny greeting cards and prints showcase her unique observations of modern day love and everyday life, often depicting many of her (and my) favourite English household items, from Marmite to Heinz baked beans.

And as my Instagram followers will know, for some time I’ve been a huge fan of her pregnancy announcement cards and congratulatory cards for new parents, which are right on the money, highly recommended and just so good. See a few of my favourites below…

So imagine my surprise when no-me herself recently got in touch directly to let me know that, not only is she a follower of this blog, which is exciting enough in itself, but that one of my recent posts (my man’s guide to baby growth during pregnancy) actually inspired her latest card creation!

Needless to say, I immediately gave her the green light to go into mass production! After all, it really is such an honour to be collaborating with the incredible no-me on this project, and to know that my special man’s guide to baby growth will now and forever be immortalised in print!

So on that note I urge you all to check out this latest greeting card (a bargain at just £2.50, and also available as a print for your baby’s nursery) via no-me‘s shop on Etsy – click here to see her full range.

And please do follow her on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter too – you won’t regret it.

      I know right? But I don’t blame her…it’s very tricky to draw a testicle in a cute way!
