I have used one of the new stamps from Megan.

 Coloured her with Copic pens( one day i shall be organised enough to show you the colours!!)
I used a small amount of glossy accents for the eyes and hearts.

 I think the chicks are from Pink Petticoat  ( digital store) 

The sentiment is half stamped and rubons ( from YEARS ago)

Whimsical Wednesdays- pastels

 This week we would like to see pastel Colours on your card. We have been inspired by the gorgeous colours in this image

So pretty!

 I was asked to make a card for a friends daughter who is 21, so chose this Meljen digi stamp to colour.

 I used some memory box dies to make these cute flowers.

Then just went to town on the liquid pearls  :)

This week we are sponsored by Beccy's place and the winner get three digi stamps of their choice!

Don't forget to pop over to the Main blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT.

The card has already been given to a pupil from school who is off sick - one of my "noisier" inmates :) Its been very quiet with out her and i hope she is better over Easter.

Craft Fair Results

I am such a twit, I forgot to take photos!! 
Anyway it was an awful morning - in fact it is still bitterly cold and still snowing!
I set off ( without satnav ) to the middle of nowhere- Sorry but i don't think I have EVER been to Syleham before and its only about 7 miles away. (there's no phone signal there).
I was amazed that I found it easily enough and other people had turned out too.
I sold about £20 worth of items ( most were about £1 - £2.50 ) So I was quite pleased as I wasn't expecting to sell much at all. 
Well, that's my first one done- I need more variety and maybe different prices- a few bigger projects/gifts. 
A few people asked if I had an Etsy Store - I used to but have recently found Folksy to list things made in the uk. Here is a link to my store Soojay
There are only a couple of cards in it at the mo though.

First craft Fair

 I have been preparing for my first ever craft table at a local fair on Saturday.
Its okay - I am not expecting to sell much- i know it is really difficult. 

 I have HUNDREDS of cards to sell and have made a few little "bits" as well- these contain a few chocolate eggs. I saw the template on Pintrest and they are SO easy .

 Some 6 x6 note book blanks ( i still have a couple to do)

 I thought i'd make a few Easter cards- there are more in different colours.

 Again quite quick and easy to make.

 The stamp was £1 from Hobbycraft.

 I also covered some "post it notes" ( the stamp is Steph's from Whimsical Designs)

 I have LOADS more of these to make.

 They do make sweet gifts.

 Some blank note books recovered.

 I cut down a prima doll stamp ( the image - NOT the stamp!!!) for this one ( my fav)

Well, its Saturday so I'll let you know how it went - just enough to buy a few more supplies would be nice.

Okay - I like the finished thing ..BUT what do I DO with it ??
Any ideas?
