I meant to blog yesterday about my wedding fayre on Sunday but I got so enthralled in my work (!) I forgot all about it. Then I thought I would do it yesterday evening.....................again I got so wrapped up in making cards, by the time I realised I hadn't blogged it was 11.35 pm so I went to bed.

The wedding fayre was successful. I sold some jewellery and a couple of tiaras then yesterday I had a phone call from a lady whose favours I made last month saying she needed some more. I have an appointment tonight to discuss a stationery order with a B2b and I took a booking for a jewellery party next month............so all in all I'm a very happy bunny :))

I had a double table and as you can see on the table above I have quite a collection of tiaras and fascinators. The picture below shows my whole set up (with hubby's disco gear behind it!)

I managed to get the card made for the DCM challenge again. I think that is 3 in a row now!! The challenge this time was set by Tracie and this is what she said

For this weeks dare, I dare you to "start from scratch" I want to you design a card with NO purchased/pre-assembled embellishments - that means no blooms unless you cut them yourself, no buttons, brads etc etc. I guess how easy this is depends on your usual style

And here is my card. The flower is made from some freebie ribbons I got on the front of a magazine a while ago. It looks much nicer in real life because the scanner has flattened the flower!

I am really pleased with this next card. I think it is what is commonly known as simple but effective. The stamp is from The Stamp Boutique on ebay.

My final card for now features a cutie stamp which I had sent to me by a dear friend who was closing her online craft shop. The 'picture frame' is cut from the new wedding scrap pad by K & Co and the paw prints are another stamp from the Stamp Boutique.

Work beckons. I may be back later. bfn

Spring must definitely be in the air at your place to inspire your beautiful ribbon flower.

Congrats on your success at the Wedding Faye.

Well done on the fair, Jackie.

I think you could count all of these cards for the DCM dare! Love the vibrant ribbons for the flower - very summery!
