Hi Everyone, I am so sorry not to have commented on many of your projects or cards, it really is because I am flat out and getting no where, we have my Brother and SIL this weekend so everything had to be packed up, so we could have a bed to sleep in.  The fair is next Saturday and I have made 1/2 of what I made last year and last year I sold it all, I feel like I am in trouble!

Anyway as my SIL has gone to bed early with cold symptoms and is not well, I have a few minutes to play, so thought I would let you see another of my "makes" for the craft fair.  I made a pattern in PS from a fabulous holly digi from Digistamp Boutique printed on printable vellum, I added ribbon to the top and bottom of the shade and a ribbon tied around the stem of the wine glass. I added a tealight inside of the glass with the base wrapped in the vellum, I think you may be able to see it.  It seems to be very popular already.

I shall enter the following challenges hope this is OK for an entry.

Anything but square

Poster for the boys!

Hi everyone, a quick post to let you know I am still here but still VERY busy, I think it was the worst (or best?) that I took samples of my craft fair into work.  I have a table there in December and orders coming in like crazy, the problem is I have a table in the church in a couple of weeks and I can't keep up with making things, so for the next few weeks I won't be here very often.  I expect people want silly stocking fillers as I have done.

Here is a sample of one very popular item.  I downloaded the gift label from HERE as it has a perfect image and sentiment for the gift.  I was lucky enough to buy the ribbon from a garden centre we stopped at one time, sorry can't remember where, but it was 96 meters yes 96! for £10.00.  Wish I had bought another one now, at the time I didn't know I was doing the fairs.

I'm also adding a poster I have done for "the boys" in work for their night out, I have left it as it is on PS as I haven't printed it out yet, of course I have obscured the place they are meeting.  The men and label are a freebie from Papercraft and Inspiration Magazine the digi paper background is paper 1 from the digi kit "bohemianfall" by Vero.  The shapes are default in PS with a gradient overlay 

SO I am doing other things as well as making - whew!

Hope you are all well and getting ready for Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!

60th birthday friend

Hello Everyone, a short post as time is of the essence LOL.

I just wanted to post a card I did very quickly last night, AND to show I am not slacking LOL.

I had an email with apologies at 5.30 last night to let me know that a friend's birthday was on Wednesday and would I make a card for her so that it could be delivered with the flowers we are sending to her, (she is also off sick atmo). It meant that it had to be taken into work today AND Strictly Comes Dancing was at 6.30 aaarrrggghhh!  Well this is what I managed to do after going through a lot of files for something to "click".  The paper is from Miriam Freebies, I added a ribbon, which is practically the same colour, why does that happen when a photo is taken?  and added another layer to the flowers, oh! yes and a bit of net to finish off.  It actually looks much nicer IRL.

I'm not entering any challenges as it's too quick a post to see if one suits!

Hope you all have a good week.
