When I get my backside out of bed today, I must photograph some cards I bought at a little fair I was doing a few weeks ago, got a couple of birthdays coming up and a lady makes these beautiful cards out of icing, hard to describe them but they are lovely, they are stood up on a little board, with a big hole in the front and inside they have a spray of flowers coming out through the front...if that makes sense. She sells them at £5 each, which is pricey for just a card, but I've bought a few over the past few months as they are so pretty, i think you could class them as a card and small gift in one.
Now I just need to remember my photo bucket password.

Made a start on my Christmas Cards today, as well as orders, have such a big family to make for. Still, it is always fun, you can make them as Sparkly as you like.

I know that Tina makes cards but don't know if anyone else does. But if anyone is interested I was in the works this morning and picked up 3 clears stamps not small ones they measure around 9 x 10 cm and are the cutie type with hedgehogs etc. They were priced at 1.99 on the shelf but went through the till at 99pence. The also have packets of 50 cellophane bags priced at 99 pence and 1.99

Saw some beautiful hand-made cards in the foyer of the church yesterday (see Good Morning thread).

They were for sale for £1.50 each. I have to admit there was such a lovely selection - suitable for all eventualities. I was impressed by the work involved.  ok
