Wings on Wednesday!

 Good Morning My Crafty Friends,
I hope that you are all well this chilly Wednesday morning.
Todays card is made using mainly the amazing Austrian Collection Innsbruck Die by Creative Expressions, I love this die so much.
 I used a combination of cream and a dark dusky rose colour card, cutting the frame out of the cream card using the Innsbruck die and layered over the rose card,  I stamped the sentiment and embossed with clear embossing powder ( I find this easier as when you are heating it any powder that may blow off of your stamped image cannot be seen as much as if you emboss with black powder).
The Butterfly is Spellbinders 'les Papillions' and I
cut each layer from each of the card I used for the main card, I embellished it with a
string of adhesive tiny pearls and added a pearl swirl from Creative Expressions, to make a trail for the butterfly.
The flower embellishment is made using a foliage die by Impression Obsession called leafy branch, which I die cut out of green card, I topped that with some paper roses from my vast flower stash! I finished with a few more pearls in the corners.
Here is the promised picture of my stall at the Craft Fayre, obviously its my 'half' of the table, therefore a little cramped. I had a fair amount of things to sell and clearly STILL have all of those things to sell!
And by the way, yes I do ;look stressed!!
Never mind, its all behind me now!
Thanks for stopping by again today, I really do appreciate your time,
Crafty Hugs

  1. Good morning Sandra, well your half of the table looks very inviting, if only you had had the people in to admire all your beautiful cards and Jewellery, you would have gone home with a lot less stock. I see Steph told you about a few craft outlets, So find one that has good coverage. Today's card is another WOW one, love your colours and layout. Hazel x

  2. Stunning card again my lovely I love your colour combo that dark dusky rose card & cream is gorgeous. The Innsbruck die is one of my favourite Dies.

  3. Hi Sandra,
    Another very beautiful card today and I love the Innsbruck your choice of colours too.
    Your stall looks so classy and your cards and jewellery are just so beautiful....methinks that 'other lady' was very jealous of you. Don't give up on your fayres Sandra because you really do make the most stunning creations.

    Love Sheila xx

  4. Hello Sandra,

    Your stall is laid out beautifully and a credit to your work, don't give up Sandra you really have got a great talent, Love Brenda x

  5. HI Sandra lovely card the colour combination is so pretty. I am sorry you were so stressed in your photo. You should of gone home empty handed your cards and jewellery looked lovely and so well presented. Love Tandy

  6. Hi Sandra. This is a gorgeous card, love the colour combo and those beautiful flowers. Your bit of the table is beautifully presented, in the right place your goodies will fly out of the door. Like we were discussing yesterday, thanks again for the yummy lunch, yes ladies Sandra is a wonderful cook too : ), I really think the NOC would be a great place to sell your cards and jewellery. Take care. Mrs B xx

  7. Good afternoon Sandra,
    I wont tell you what attempt this is at commenting on your absolutely stunning cards my dear friend as certain heaps of junk are in danger of getting flying lessons. Anyway your brown card is so, so beautiful (but hey i'm old fashioned and love the colour of browns and autumn colours). I love everything about the card as it just appeals to me. This card is so pretty as well and with the mats and layers and flowers just to finish it off is perfect. Sorry i haven't been able to comment sooner on your beautiful works of art but me and computers are just not friends at the moment between one going on the stoat, my tablet being pernickity and this is hubby's computer for his gaming that he has had to put my stuff on to and it won't let me update my database of dies or print off or anything. I am going to go and lie in a darken room to come back to myself.
    Thank you angel for just being you, you don't know what it means to me to have lovely friends like you and a number of others from Sue's blog,
    take care
    Love and crafty hugs
    Norah (Glenochil)

    1. Hi Norah,
      Thank you for your lovely comment, i would live to send you a message too, do you have an email address that I can use?
      Let me know please! Sorry you are having technical problems, I too suffer a bit with that, I am not very computer savvy at all, but neither of the laptops in our house are dependable, so blooming temperamental! Drives me mad!
      Love and a big hug on it's way to Glenochil village!

  8. Oh Sandra. I really hope you can find somewhere soon to sell your cards etc. Looking at your table, I know you would do really really well. Both the gift and card, how can you go wrong, you wont. If your crafting friends also know your area, im certain they will know where you can sell your beautiful gifts and cards, Sandra - you will do so well especially leading up to C. Time, I hope you have lots more cuz im almost certain all that will fly. The jewellry table where I go always has lots n lots of people gathered round, and she sells well, have you made pretty little bangles etc for little girls ? Attract the children, the mommy's and nannies wont be far behind : )
    I hope to hear you have found a market to do really soon Sandra.
    Have a lovely evening all.
