Red and green are not just for Christmas


Well Good Morning and a good Monday morning it is too. It isn't raining, yet!, and I won a £15 voucher on the Wild Orchids challenge, woo hoo. Happy spending for me.

The craft fair yesterday was lovely, only 4 hours and only 6 miles away. A very sociable event and I sold more cards than Saturday too. Need to restock now as I am doing the hospital Summer Fair from 4-8 on Thursday and another fete on Sunday. 

I had a good sort out of the blogs I follow last night as I found some on my list which I never visit and I haven;t a clue who they even belong to. There were also some that don't exist anymore. Sometimes you just have do a bit of blog housekeeping. It should make it easier for commenting now and visiting all you lovely people who take the time to visit me.

I am sharing another of my Stamposaurus samples today. I tend to use pastel colours for sweet Ellie but I wanted to make one which was a complete contrast. I really like the way it turned out with the patchwork effect. Don't forget you could win an Ellie stamp if you enter my candy.
