I'm ready for tomorrow!!!!!

Hi everyone!!!!

Before I share photo's of what I'll be selling tomorrow I would like to thank those of you who left good luck wishes after my previous post - thank you so much - it means a lot to me and warms my heart!!!!  I'm a bit nervous at this stage, but I've got everything ready and there's no turning back now!!!  Will be in bed early tonight and up early tomorrow morning - the market opens at 8 and I'll be there at 6:30 to set up my stall!!!!!
I promised to share photo's of what I'll have to sell, so here goes:

Some crocheted and other cushions decorated with fabric roses.

Some embroidered cloths for the guys saying: 'Dad's BBQ cloth', 'Granddad's BBQ cloth' and hubby said that I should make some for the fishermen saying: 'My fishing cloth'.

Christmas cards and decorations.

Star dies from MFT.

Crocheted bags.

Bags with matching purses.

Stuff for the wall.

Gerbera daisy dies from MFT.

Decorated wine bottles.
Some more MFT dies used on these.


Knitted bears.

Fridge magnets and notepads.
The fridgemagnets are little clay 'flowerpots' with two MFT 'Prima Donna petals' flowers in them.
The notepads are also decorated with MFT dies.

And then of cause, I'll have some birthday cards, too!!

So that's what I'll have for sale tomorrow morning!!!!  Some of these items I have limited stock available, but some others I have quite a lot of.  Now I just hope that some people would like to buy one or two items!!!!

The weather forecast for tomorrow is a temperature of 22 degrees, which is quite nice, but there is a slight possibility of rain, which I just hope will stay away!!!

OK, I'm off for now!!!!!

So nice to have you visiting!!!!  Enjoy your weekend!!!

Preparing for my Stall.

Hi everyone!!!!!

Hope you're all well and have much time to be creative!!!!!

Thought I would just let you know that for the last two weeks I've been getting ready for my stall I'm going to have at our local Farmers' Market, coming Saturday the 12th!!!!  I've been wanting to give it a try for quite some time, but just not got to actually doing it before!!!  I think the Christmas season is the best time to see if it will work.  The SA schools will be closing on Wednesday the 9th, but most of the kids have finished exams last week already, so they are already enjoying the holidays!!!  George and the surrounding coastal towns are popular holiday destinations and lots and lots of people visit during the Christmas season.  Maybe coming Saturday will be a bit quiet still, but I might do a stall on the next Saturday the 19th as well, which might be a better day to try and get the visitors who still need to do Christmas shopping!!!!  So for the next week or two I would not be around in Blogland much, but I'll be visiting and commenting as soon as I have the time again!!!!

I will be sharing photos of some of my products I will be selling, before the end of the week!!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for popping in!!!

Hi everyone!!!!

I had some fun playing with the sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!
Here's the sketch:

and the first card I made using the sketch:

The snowman and snowflake stamps are part of a set of free stamps I got with a magazine very long ago.
I've embossed the snowflakes with clear EP and did the sponging with Stormy Sky DI.
Flourish and Notepad Edge dies from MFT.
Sentiment stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Music paper form my stash.

While I was busy with my Christmas card I got the idea to make a shaker card, so I made this:

It's a piece of cork and micro beads on the inside of the shaker.
Flower and leaves dies from MFT.
EFs from Cuttlebug.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

Can you believe this is my very first shaker card!!!  Am I late at the party or what????

Thank you so much for visiting and have a great weekend!!!!

DT call card

Hi everyone!!!!

Ka, from Stamping Smiles Designs is having a DT call for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge she is going to start next year.  I had such a lot of fun creating a card to be considered for a DT spot!!!!


I choose the diagonal row,   'Twine - Embossing - Thank You Card',    to work with.
This is the card I created:

I've heat embossed the leaves and flower with clear EP.  Flower coloured with DI.
Swiss dot EF from Cuttlebug.
Leaves stamp from PTI.
Flower stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Sentiment stamp and small circle stamp from Altenew.
Notepad edge die from MFT.

Not much time left to link my card!!!!

Thank you so much for popping in - always a pleasure to have you visiting!!!!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Hi everyone!!!

I've got two cards to share this morning!!!!  Both cards were inspired by the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:

and the first card I made:

I've sponged the tags with DIs and heat embossed the swirl and butterfly with clear EP.  The tags are price tags that I've bought at a local stationary shop.
Swirl stamp from PTI.
Butterfly stamp from Crafty Individuals.
Small circle stamp from Altenew.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
The one tag looks as if it's not neatly lined up with the swirl on the card front, but that's because of the angle at which I photographed the card and the fact that I've slightly curled up the bottom corners of the tags.

On the second card I have taken it a bit too far to link at the challenge - don't think this will go through as a  CAS card!!!!
This is what my card looks like:

Flowers hand punched.
Chevrons cut with Tim Holtz Chevron die.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

OK, I'll leave you with that for now!!!  Thanks so much for spending some time with me!!!

Have a great day!!!
