Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Thanks for all the good luck wishes for the Christmas Craft Fayre yesterday - I will share some photos at the end of this post.
I also need to let you know about the exciting event that is happening over at
this month so this is a very long post - grab a cuppa and get comfy :o)
So staring with the Craft Fayre I wish I could tell you it was a huge success but unfortunately it wasn't :o(
Not one card sold!!! It wasn't just me that didn't sell much - everyone other than the lady next to me that was selling old fashioned knitted animals had a quiet day.
But I did sell the Snow Plaque I made and one of the Key Holder Plaques - a couple of crackers and some bags of tags, a couple of packets of Snowman Soup and a couple or Gift Bags - including the one I'm sharing with you today as my DT project for
and this fortnight as well as the sketch we have the optional theme of
LET IT SNOW
So here's what I did:
Here's what I used:
Image: Gorgeous die cut Topper from The Hobby House 'Wee Stamps - Silver Fairy'
Design Papers: LOTV 'Woodland Wishes'
Snowflakes Border: Joy Crafts 'Winter Wishes - Ice Crystals Border'
Let it Snow Sentiment: Pink Gem Designs 'Christmas Circle Sentiments - Set 2'
Adhesive Pearls: The Hobby House '5mm Ivory Silk'
Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

As promised here is a picture of my table at the Christmas Craft Fayre yesterday:
Although not much was sold - I did get lots and lots of lovely compliments on all the things I had on display and I guess the positive to be taken is I have all the Christmas cards and some gifts I need personally already made so no mad rush on the lead up to the big day for me :o)
