A card for the first time in ages!

Hello crafty friends! What's this, I hear you in amazement, it's a card!

I popped along to my local craft club on Wednesday night with some stamps, some Copic paper and some Copics and this was the result. A Stamping Bella fairy in funky colours - well I did take an odd range of colours with me! - on a very plain background. Just some stencilling with a Uniko butterfly stencil and squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide put on with an ink duster so it wasn't too heavily coloured. She's been fussy cut and popped up on foam pads.

It felt good to colour again and actually blogging too! 

Things in life are a bit more back on track again after illnesses with the children and a bout of depression for me.

The Etsy shop has had me busy, and I just hit 100 sales the other day, which is a goal I've been dreaming of for a very long time. Initially it was my aim to get there by December, but I managed it 6 months before that. What's surprised me is that my biggest seller has been my sets of reusable wipes and small coin purses to put them in. I've been learning as much as I can about making reusable products and more of these will be added to the shop over the coming year. I've also had a request for wholesaling some of my items, and I will share details soon :)

Thank you so much for all your support and for reading as usual. Happy Crafting Everyone!

Nice to see you blogging again Ruth and making a card here and there. I think this is lovely with its beautiful yellow butterfly background. It's not a colour I use often in a background but I think it highlights the lovely SB fairy perfectly. Great news about your shop, especially the wholesaling part! yay! xx
