Selling Cards……

I got an email today from my niece, Emma, who reckons I should sell my handmade cards online….. now this seed has been planted my mind was working overtime.  How/where/etc etc…

I have an Etsy account, but It’s not set up to sell things… the downfall there is that you have to list items in $ dollars.

I also opened up a Folksy account, but for some strange reason, I can’t for the life of me uploads any pictures.

My third option is Ebay.. yes I have an account, yes it is in full working order, it’s hooked up to Paypal to accept payments etc etc… great I thought, i’ll go for Ebay, stick one card on it and see what happens…

So there we have it… thanks to Emma, I have now listed a card on Ebay… which card? 

This card 🙂 I made it last week for the Dawn McVey Colour Challenge…


 Here is a link to ebay where my card is listed

Sending Warm Fuzzies..


It’s been an absolute age since I’ve made any cards, and thought it was high time I made some more….

I follow quite a few card making blogs, and over at Dawn McVey’s Blog she runs a weekly colour challenge… a perfect opportunity to get the creative juices flowing again 🙂

Here is the card I made …. the colours to be used are Chocolate, bright pink, cream and Kraft.


Colour Inspiration No. 37


I have followed Kristina Werner’s Blog now for some time, this week I thought I would take the plunge and join in with her Weekly Colour Challenges…

The deal is you make a card or scrapbook layout with a colour combination that she  posts on her blog each week…  Here is my offering ….   🙂

This evening I toddled off upstairs to make another card, I’m enjoying making cards at the moment, as it feels like a long time since i’ve been able to just do my own thing.

This evening’s creation is a Thinking of you card, made up with the following:-

  • Black glitter cardstock
  • Black card with embossed clear swirls
  • Black Paper Flower (Think its a Sarah;s Bloomers one)
  • Creamy flower with black swirls is Making Memories 5th avenue
  • Thinking of you disk found in my stash
  • Black ribbon, courtesy of one of my new jumpers 🙂

Wishing you Peace Card

In my lunch hour today I took a wander over to WHSmith’s as they have a half price sale on some of their card making stuff… I particularly wanted the 50 square card bundle for £4.99, they had cream and white… so for a change I bought some cream.

This evening, after i’d sorted out the troops, I settled down to make a card… this time just going with the flow no pressures of having to make a card for an order and racking my brain for idea’s.

My card was made up as follows:-

  • Cream Square card and envelope from WHS
  • Laura Ashley backing paper
  • Grey cardstock that I got from Hobbycraft
  • Grey Bazill Ribbon
  • Sentiment was via a kit I ordered off QVC some time last year.

I love the way the backing paper that I added to the grey card with the sentiment flows in with the original backing paper applied directly to the card .. (a total fluke I must add) 🙂
