Time to Celebrate


As promised I am back today with another of the fabulous new stamp set from Little Claire. I stamped it using Memento Rich Cocoa. The sentiment is also from the set and has been die cut with a Spellbinder tag. Everything has been edged with DI Vintage Photo. I added some burlap, string and a metal vintage hand from Crafts-Too.

Challenges
Creative Inspirations It's a boy thing 
Crafty Catz Anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity Texture
As you like it Favourite item to create 3D texture (It has to be burlap) 
Charisma Use something not meant for crafting (burlap from the flower arranging section in Joanns, string from a pack of doilies and tags from the kitchen section at Dunelm Mill)

The craft fair yesterday was pretty good but made me realise I need more stock as I could have sold another 6-8 cards if I had the ones people wanted. Having a day at home today so planning lots of crafting. We are out for a meal with friends later and then the theatre, third trip in nine days. Love Sunday night TV so the recorder is set.  Have a good day everyone.

Hi Marianne, your life is a real whirlwind!! Great vintage feel card today. I am sure it will certainly sell. The one type of card I never took to a market, was Sympathy. Guess what?! A regular customer was sent by a friend to me, to get 3 Sympathy cards! I now take them and have not sold one! Have a great evening. Hugs, Carol S.xx
