Wonderful Wonderful New

Morning all

OK I can share my really good news with you now, I am so excited am doing a happy jig around the chair, can't jig without support lol.  I have been chosen over at Crafting for all Seasons as a member of their design team along with Annie my blogging buddy.  We are not officially starting until January but what crafter can wait that long to make some cards with the gorgeous designs that come from our generous sponsors.  Why not pop along and take part in the current challenge.  You never know you could be picked as a winner and enjoy lots of fantastic prizes. 

I had a lovely day in my craft room yesterday and made the following using lots of tissue paper and card, Rachel gave me the idea when I was checking her blog out so thought I would give it a go.
So I made the following, three candles with images printed onto tissue paper and then 3 milk boxes to hold the candles used Barkley Christmas CD and Makey Bakey Mice Christmas CD.  These are going to be for  my Craft Fair on Friday but not sure how much to charge for them, the candles were £3.00 each and then the 2 sheets of A4 card and ink mmm will have to think on this.   Yes I know I said I would post angels today but got carried away making these little darlings instead.  The only thing is I don't know how much to charge for them as people want something for nothing these days, especially with the economic climate being the way it is.

Did you know that my cards were highlighted here didn't know anything about it until Annie sent me an email and told me about it so wow am well chuffed.

Am off out shortly for the Wednesday Morning Coffee Stop which is over in the community rooms here in Cornwood looking forward to seeing everyone as otherwise don't see a soul unless I go out to the shops.

Well that's it from me for now,  need to get myself  a shower and sort myself out before 10.30 will be back blog hopping to see your wonderful creations.

Lots of love

A well chuffed Alison xx
