A successful night!

Well this was one of the first cards I sold last night at the school Fayre!......another page ripped from my old book...a luggage tag from a pack I found in WhSmiths all inked up with Walnut Stain...I have used my pencils to colour in Carnival Balloon...first time being inked up for her!! Kinda liked this one and part of me didn't want to let her go...do you ever get that with your cards?...I have a couple that I never took to the fayre cos I just can't part with them!
I was sooo pleased with all the interest I got...even though I was a little bit embarrassed with people ooohing and ahhing over my cards!  I sold 15 bookmarks, 21 cards and both of the little sets of notelets...which came to just under £60 for the school!  A few folk did say that I wasn't charging enough  ( £1 for the bookmarks, £1 for the CAS cards, £2 for the other cards and £2 for the notelets)  but I just wanted to make sure that I sold something!lol

gorgeous card , love everything about it , defo not charging enough for your cards but is hard to get the balance right as you dont want to be too expensive but have you seen how much they charge in WhSmith for a card with a gem stuck on it!!!...........K x

Hi Jane...
WOW...What a lot you made and how lovely are you to give all the money to the school...I have lots of cards that I love sooo much that I only let very special friends buy them...How crazy is that????
Thanks for the comment about glee.
Honestly we couldn't believe how lucky we were to get picked to go the the front of the stage area...They just had a whole empty row to fill. People who got given complimentary tickets who didn't make it. I was sat next to a guy who had a friend who was a backing dancer. Corey (Finn) was gorgeous...You can tell I took lots of photos of him! xxx
