Ahoy There


The craft fair yesterday was disappointing. As it is a Framer's Market as well it is usually busy but even the produce stalls had lots of stock left. I wonder if many of the regular older customers have gone away now that the schools are back. There was a lack of ladies who lunch there yesterday and they are my best customers. I am at a craft fair all day today so I hope that one will be better.

I am so sorry if I haven't visited you recently. I have been getting ahead with some DT work as we have a short break coming up soon and I have been at craft fairs all weekend. Next week is very busy too with 2 hospital appointments, a haircut and a massage. I do appreciate your visits and comments so much.

So onto my card for today.

Hi Marianne, I have found, that markets in the first week after the return to school, are never that well attended. We wonder if their money has been spent on new uniforms for school, along with the older people having gone away. Hope it is better today for you.
Great card, very nautical! Brilliant man card. Hugs, Carol S.xx

I wonder what is going on as well, our farmers market hasn't even had any set up for the last 2 weeks? Anyway, I love the nautical theme, very masculine, the ribbon is a very nice touch and the image pulls all your embellies together nicely. Thanks for joining our new challenge( renamed) at Creative Knockouts.
