sussex beacon open day

just been sent this pic of me in action!!! c,")

today was my appearance debut making my cards *live* at the sussex beacon annual 'garden gadabout' open day

i was a bit bad at taking pics but here are a couple from my phone

i was given a big table to set up my gear and display all the cards i took with me.
they sold in no time at all!!
i had to start making more cards to replace the ones i sold and they went as soon as i made them!
i had hoped that people would like to make a card with me but most were just passing through as there are a lot of gardens to view this weekend!  but even a lovely lady who is an actress in eastenders [apparently lol] and a supporter of the sussex beacon kindly bought 4 from me!!

i am delighted that we made well over £6o today!!
and the other stalls made a significant amount of money too.  well done to them all
there were lovely ladies making and selling jewellery and a very special lady who makes unique baby clothing [link to]

the time went very quickly and i met some lovely people.

i came home cardless and my gear is still in bags ... it will have to wait til it gets put away!! lol .... i only took a fraction of my stash but it still weighed a ton!!!

i have been asked to make them a stash more cards as they sell very quickly! so i'm gonna be inky for some time now!!
christmas is my next large scale production!

a huge thank you again to country view crafts and craft obsessions for donating so many goodies.

i also left behind some plain and patterned card from my stash and some double sided tape and embellies so that the patients might enjoy making a card themselves sometime.
