Christmas Bazaar

Yesterday we had  a Christmas Bazaar at our church and I offered to make cards and decorations to sell.  Niamh came home from Uni and was a great help on the day!! She was also the photographer as I forgot to take any  pics of the things I had made!!!

Rudolph candy cane decorations

Chocolate handbags to hang on the tree


Reindeer food

Candles in glass jars decorated with vellum and silhouette peel-offs

A selection of cards

We had lots of fun and sold most of our stock. We came home with lovely cakes and Niamh found some pretty jewellery on the bric-a-brac stall so she was happy too!!
Now I've just got to make a few more cards to send to family and friends!!

Thanks a bunch

Just a simple card today as I needed a quick thankyou card for my daughters friend who helped me out by doing some printing for me....must look at the printer again and try and get it working!!

The card looks an odd shape but that's my "photography skills"!!
The patterns are made with Waltzingmouse stamps and a selection of inks...
I really need new inkpads are fast wearing out!!
The trim is sticky ribbon that I found at the bottom of my ribbon box and it's still sticky.
A paper flower and a brad to finish.
