Cristmas Wreath

This card is one of a few I demonstrated at Needham Market Scrapbooking and craft Fair.

Lots of people passed comment about it, and where most surprised when they found out the stamp set used wasn't a Christmas one. A few of you suggested that it would look nice done in blue and silver, so I gave it a go. Here it is.

Let me know which one is your favourite. Mine ...... that is a difficult one, but I think I am swaying to the Green and Red, I am a bit of a traditionalist and love these colours together.

Road trip to Needham Market

Yesterday I was up bright and early, and set off to Needham Market, Nr Ipswich to demo at the Cardnaking and Scrapbooking Fair . There where lots of local retailers with their mobile shops there and little old me promoting Stampin' Up!. Have to say I had a blast. The weather was cold, but the sun was shining and tons of people called in to do some stash shopping.

Here's a picture of my stand. Quite a small afair compared to the others but lots of people stopped by and checked me out. It was great talking to so many talented people.

On my stand I held a free draw for a basket of Stampin' Up! goodies. This morning, before he went to school, I got my son to draw a name from the box and I am please to announce the winner is

Neta, from Halstead

Congratulations Neta, I will be posting off the goodies to you tomorrow.

Thank you to all the lovely people that stopped by yesterday, it was great meeting you all.
