Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Something different.

When i was sorting through my craft stuff i found a pack of Gorjuss card toppers. I bought them when i hadn't been making cards for long, just before i turned into a stamping snob. I decided to overcome my snobbery as i need to have loads of cheapie cards ready for if and when this weekly table top sale starts. It's being organised by men so it could be years yet,lol.
I've been trying to make these cards from scraps and stuff I'd normally either leave in the drawer or throw away. That way i won't be gutted if they don't sell.
They can then be given away at no great loss.
The deckle edged cards are from Hobbycraft and are c6 size.
The toppers were also from Hobbycraft and were under a fiver. There's enough left for at least 10 more cards.
Of course I intend to do some "posh" cards too just in case people want to shove their hands a bit deeper into their pockets.
As a bit of encouragement I will be joining in with Jules's Sunday snippets challenges at her "Always with a heart"  blog. It's a fun challenge with no prizes except the satisfaction of seeing your scrap pile go down a bit.

  6. Hi Diane

    I'm in total agreement with all the comments above. Perfectly lovely cards, they should sell a treat.

    Hugs, Sandra

  7. lovely little set of cards - they should sell no probs. The simpliest ones usually go first in my opinion. The more time I take making something the less likely it is to sell.
