Crafting For All Seasons Challenge 92

Hi All,
 
Another challenge at Crafting For All Seasons, starts today
and lasts for 1 month as it's Christmas!!
 
The theme this time is - Christmas, Anything BUT A Card.
 
We have 3 brilliant sponsors for this challenge.
 
Firstly, Lacy Sunshine is giving 3 images free.
 
 
The second is Bugaboo Stamps and they are giving away 7 digis free!!
Fabulous Sponsor 2014


And finally, Stitchy Bear Outlet are giving 3 images free.
I think you will agree that the sponsors are very generous. 
 
 The image I am using for my gift bag, is Flurry, from Lacy Sunshine stamps.
 
She is gorgeous and I really enjoyed colouring her.
I used Distress Inks as usual.
 

For the snowflakes, I used Martha Stewart Paper Clay and a snowflake cutter.
The charm is from one of those 'one price only' shops!
 
For the snow, I used Americana Writer glue and Cosmic Shimmer glitter.
 


For some amazing inspiration, do pop over to the challenge here.
 My DT teamies, have made some stunning pieces of art work.
 
Thanks for stopping by and looking forward to seeing your entries.
What are you going to make?!!
 
I have just done my last Craft Fair for this year. I did Saturday and Sunday, of last weekend. Saturday was very frosty and freezing at the venue. We were lucky in the afternoon for a bit,
as the sun came out and warmed up the greenhouse we were in.

Sunday was mainly dark and miserable but not quite so cold.
On Saturday, we had 1,009 people through. I was worried that I would not have enough stock for Sunday. It was selling that quick!!
Clocks, big and small boxes, butterflies, were all flying of my stall!
 
Sunday was a bit quieter but still sold quite a lot.
I had taken 10 crates of stock for the weekend.
I came home with 4 empty crates!!
 
I must now finish making my cards. I still have 52 to make for me and a couple of orders too.
 
Thanks for your lovely, encouraging messages. I do love reading them, as they brighten these dark, miserable, winter days.
 
Hugs,
Carolxx
