Sold 16 cards yesterday to two kind friends

Hello sweet blogging friends,

I had a great day yesterday as two of my friends bought 16 cards at one go from me. Can you believe how happy that made me??? It did wonders to my mojo which has deserted me of late. I have noticed that if I don't sell my cards often enough, that is what happens to me. So this sale was a God send for me. I seem to have raised enough to support three of the five children from last year and hope that I sell enough to cater for all five of them for this year.

Now to my card - it is kind of recycled as the striped paper you see is from a mini cake carton from the bakery we have downstairs. It was just too pretty for me to trash even though I had to try rather hard to retrieve it as there were ample chocolate stains on the paper. The cow print is a ribbon (I love it) and the stamp is from Penny Black while the embroidery floss is from my stash.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Off to visit my fave blogs now.

Love,
Monica
