The snowman needs a hat


I hope everyone is steering clear of cold and viruses. Some friends have had a really nasty sinus virus so we haven't seen them whilst they have been ill. I haven't had anything to show you for a few days as I have been busy making more tags and sewing. On Saturday I did my first craft fair of five this month. I did ok but not great and everyone said the same. There was a good footfall but not many buyers. Hoping for better this Saturday at the local high school, It is the first time I have done it but others do it every year and have told me it is very good so we shall see. 

On Sunday we went out for breakfast and then went to see some jigsaws a lady was selling. She was having a clearout and had 115 for sale originally, 49 when we got there. We bought 8 and started one when we got home. We love putting on some music and puzzling together and it is very good for the brain. I read a recent article backing this up by some research. With puzzling, crafting reading and line dancing I should be helping to stop dementia. There aren't enough hours in the day for all our hobbies!

So onto my card. I recently bought this new digi from Lili of the Valley as I love the Jack, Patch and Puss images. It was nice to get out my Copics and make a card having not made one for over a week. The papers are Your Next Stamp and trees were cut with Doohickey slender fir dies. I added some fun flock to the hat and used a Viva pearl pen on the snow and a white sparkle pen on the trees.  The sentiment is also LOTV.

I will be back tomorrow with another new make.

A super card Marianne, such a sweet image.
I gave up with Craft Fairs a few years ago, even on a good day I felt it really was not worth the time and effort that went into it.

Hi Marianne, love your card, such an adorable image and beautifully coloured. Naturally I love the tartan paper, great layout.
Sometimes craft fairs are a hit and a miss, hopefully this one will be better.
You sound like you've got plenty to keep your brain stimulated, Kate x

Gorgeous card, love the papers and image. My cousin has been really poorly with the flu bug going around and spent a week in bed. Enjoy your jigsaws, not done any for a while now.
