Easter Bunnies.......

Morning all, half way through the week..... times flies doesn't it?

Here's some more makes for my craft fairs.

A little while ago, I made roses in crepe paper, covering a lollipop for Mother's day gifts. With the ones I had left over I thought I would make Easter gifts instead. So I threw away the roses and made Easter bunnies out of card. The larger ones have bows and "faux" stitching on and the smaller ones, I've just used a pink sharpie pen and coloured in the ears !!

I did a craft fair on Monday, and these sold really will have to make some more for Friday's craft fair. 

Busy, Busy, Busy LOL !!!

Bye for now x

Anniversary Card for My Parents....

 Morning all, hope you are all well and happy.

Today is my parents wedding anniversary. It's 59 years today. Mum keeps reminding me that I'll have to let the Queen know that it's their 60th Wedding anniversary next year, so that the Queen will send congratulations to them both !!

Anyway, this is the card that I've made. I have chosen the colour scheme to match the Hunkydory sentiment and image. I've embossed a piece of black card with an embossing folder,  then using a gold polish have high-lighted areas of the card so that the embossing stands out more. The wording is a die by "Elizabeth Crafts". The flower has been made by combining two shades of yellow fabric flowers (that I bought from the £1 shop) and adding a black sparkly flat backed gem in the centre.
 Lovely words .....
Have a great day, Mum & Dad, and of course, everybody else. xx

Morning all, hope you're having a lovely relaxing day, being thoroughly spoilt !!

I've scheduled this blog, so can't comment on how my day is going. My eldest wasn't able to get home for this weekend, but I have a card and a package arrive in the post for me to open today. My youngest bought me flowers yesterday, and some t-shirts the other day whilst we were out shopping together.

I will be cooking the dinner as normal......but just maybe the washing up will be done for me (fingers crossed).

I did a craft fair on Friday evening in my village hall. It was a pamper night with stallholders. I was expecting to do very well, as in the past when I've done a pamper event, people are more interested in having the pamper sessions rather than buy anything. But actually I did really well !! There were quite a few children there, who wanted to buy things from me.

My mother's day chocolate bars went well, but I did have some left over. So I've taken those wrappers off and did new ones for Easter !! (if they don't sell they will be re-wrapped for father's day LOL !!!!)

 I used Sue Wilson die for the Easter eggs and wording, along with some Easter confetti that i bought ages ago. The papers were from a cheap pad that I've had forever and never used !!
Doing another craft fair on Monday, so will let you know how I get on.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. x

Cardio Stamps Card.....

 Morning all, well here we are another weekend is upon us !!!

I recently received some knitting/crochet/craft patterns from Mrs Duck (another blogger), and along with them was a lovely card she made using cardio stamps.

I thought it was lovely, and by chance, my friend has some cardio stamps. So I've had a go at doing a similar ccard

Have a good weekend. Bye for now x

Dumbo....The Worlds Cutest Elephant !!

Morning all, hope you are all well & happy. Did you all enjoy spring??? It happened last week and now we've bypassed summer and gone back to Autumn Lol !!

On a brighter note, my son's girlfriend is home for a couple of weeks. She is teaching in Dubai for a year. It was her birthday in February. I didn't post a card to her, but instead have made her this belated birthday/ welcome home card.

She loves Dumbo (don't we all) and I found a pattern on pinterest. It was supposed to be for hot fix crystals, but works equally well with my sewing on card. I used a pink/silver/black sparkly thread, and added googly eyes afterwards.

Once again using my Sue Wilson Noble square die. I didn't want to add any wording so just added a small butterfly.

 hope she likes it !!

Thanks for popping by, and hopefully I will see you all again soon. x

Results.....Not !!!!!

Morning all, hope your weekend is going great so far.

Did the craft fair yesterday, and what a waste of time that was !!!

When my friend and I was approached and asked if we would like a stall, we were told it was a fund raising day for the scouts.

What it actually was on the day, was a jumble sale !!! There were only 4 stalls, including us, that were selling new items. The rest of the stalls (about 12) were all full of jumble. There were no scout's about on any stalls, just the parents (i presume), no stalls with things that the scouts had made to sell. Nothing.

What was worse, was that there were no people coming in to buy either !!!

I sold an owl key-ring, my friend sold a hedgehog key-ring. The other stalls that were selling new things didn't sell anything. It should have been from 10-2, but we started packing up just after one.

A complete waste of time - oh well, I'll put that down to experience and move on.

I'm doing another stall on Friday evening at a pamper night event. Hopefully to better then.

Bye for now, and thanks for listening to me moan LOL !! x

Chocolate Bars for Mother's Day.....

 Morning all, a very quick blog today, as I'm out doing a craft fair this morning. Managed to decorate 10 chocolate bars ready to sell for Mother's day pressies. 

Christine Emberson, first showed this a few years ago, before I started doing craft fairs, such a simple idea, but very effective.
 A close-up of some of the bars.....

I'm doing another craft fair before Mother's Day, so hopefully will sell them all. If not, I can always take the wrappers off and re-decorate, ready for Father's day LOL !!! That's if I hide them away from him indoors LOL !!!

Bye for now x
