Santa's Cabin


The farmer's market and craft fair yesterday went really well and I sold lots of cards and had some great feedback with people asking if I would be there again as it is a fornightly market. I am booked in for the next one so hope that is as busy. First craft fair outing for yesterday's card and I sold it.  I also bought some lovely fresh vegetables too and resisted all the delicious cakes and pastries.  Quick update on the slimming, 9.5 lbs lost in 4 weeks on Slimming World which is a total of 12.5 lbs lost this year.

This is another of my samples for Stamposaurus for their new stamps available from September.

Still a few days left to enter my LOTV candy above.

Have a good Sunday. We are off out today to enjoy the sunshine if it appears. Must say we slept much better last nght for it being cooler and fresher. Very dull here at the moment.

Well done on your craft fair success.
& congrats on your weight loss too.
I popped on over to Jak Heaths blog this morning, & she has a picture of her hubby's weight loss. I showed my hubby & he was well impressed.

I have done slimming world before when it was Red & Green days, but now they do extra easy. I can't quite get my head round it!

your card is lovely & a great take on the sketch x
