You've gotta have friends.

Can you guess what my favourite stamp set is at the moment? lol, I just LOVE this cute set by Claire, its so adaptable, check out my posts below this one to see how she can become an angel, or better still pop over to Claire's blog and see her beautiful samples. I have actually used two of Claires stamp sets for this card, the little girl is from the Earth Angel set and the sentiment is from the 'Irish Blessings' set. I have stamped the little girl and then stamped again off the cardstock so I could make her look like she's holding hands with friends, cute eh? I decided not to colour her as I loved the clean simple look with the rest of this card. I have also used the 'Celtic Knot' cuttlebug folder, Love this too, and thought it went perfectly with the Irish blessing sentiment.
Well yesterday I was having a little look around my local craft shop, like you do, planning on not spending a penny, like you do, so how come I managed to spend £15 and come out of the shop with nothing? not a thing! Well, I bought myself a table at a Christmas craft fair they are having, It obviously seemed to me like a great idea at the time and now I feel sick! I have never done such a thing in my life! What do you bring? What do you charge? and how am i going to get all this stuff made? Well, lucky for me its only going to be a small one so if any of you crafters out there have ever done a craft fair and would like to share some tips with me I would be very grateful, its not until the 5th of December so hopefully I'll have a card or two made by then lol. Fingers crossed.

This is beautiful. I love the simplicity - it adds to the impact of this card.
Good luck with the craft fair - I'm sure you'll be a real hit (but very busy in the run up to it).
