Yet another snowman!


Great craft fair yesterday. It started slowly but by lunchtime sales were picking up and my last customer made my day buying 9 cards and one of my decorated boxes. I was so pleased to sell both boxes and a picture as well as lots of cards, noteholders, money wallets etc. I have some orders to complete this weekend and plan to get my cards written tomorrow. So time for our last challenge of the year at A Gem of a Challenge and it is a nice easy one which will last for a month, anything Christmas. All of the DT have been playing along for this one as it is our last challenge. We hope to see a lot of entries this month but just to let you know the DT won't be commenting on this one.

Medium - Copics
Paper - MME Merry
Sentiment - LOTV
Wooden trees - Hobbycraft
Other - Stickles, Viva pearl pen

Challenges

As well as a lot of snowman stamps I have a lot of snowmen Christmas decorations. Day off today so we are popping into a couple of craft fairs today and I should be picking up a new hand painted snowman from one of my fellow crafters. This evening we are going to Cafe Rouge for a meal and to the theatre to see The Full Monty which should be fun.
