New Pattern: Stormy Weather (up to 50% off!)

This week’s Sunday pattern collects together all my bad weather characters: lightning, rain and snow. It’s now been added to my on-demand stores.

This pattern is for everyone who enjoys a good storm, as long as you’re safe and warm inside. This was a little tricky to balance but it came together pretty quickly. Makes a fun pair with my Kawaii Skies pattern too.

It’s now available in my Society6, Redbubble & Zazzle stores on tons of fun products. I also added the lightning cloud on to a few products by itself.

As always, there’s some good discounts for you. Society6 has 25% off everything today (though if you hold off until Wednesday, they’ll be adding free shipping too). If my shower wasn’t enclosed I would be tempted by this cute shower curtain.

Over at Zazzle , there’s 50% off cards and 15% off everything else today only with the code ZSUMMERSALEZ. You can personalise all my cards with your own messages and names and there’s lots of characters that aren’t in my own shops.
