Good morning all.I hope you are all well.The craft fayre was fab again.i sold more of my more detailed cards versus the flatter ones so that was good.Lots of wedding ones went as  well as the pearls in your hair/braid in your hair ones.I had one lady come back for one of those and it had gone.I took my colouring with me which got people talking again, its surprising how many people don`t realise the images are handcoloured.

Stunning card - it jumps out at you. Just perfect. I'm glad to hear you did well at the fair, there will be no stopping you now.I don't think anyone who doesn't make cards themselves would realise the work that goes into one, Ruth x

Jules said...

Hi Coops

I am so pleased that the fayre went well!

I think you are right to take your colouring with you. People just don't realise the work that goes into what you make otherwise do they?

Lovely that people come back!

This card is gorgeous.

Love the bright bold colours.

Have a good week.

Love Jules xx
