Getting the stock made

It's just 1 week today until I will be selling my cards and jewellery at Dotty's Teahouse Christmas market .  I have spent weeks beavering away making stock and I am nearly ready.

If you are in the Carshalton area next Friday do pop in and say hi . It would be lovely to see you .  If you have any friends or family please give me a shout out. I will been there from 11am til 9pm..yes a very long day.
I thought that I would share a couple of sneak peeks over my next few posts....the first one today is of the festive earrings I have made. The ear wires are silver plated so that there will be no metal allergies for customers .


There are a couple of non Christmas ones the keen eyed of you might have spotted....the white rabbit from Alice and some bunnies but mostly they are all ready for wearing in the run  up to Christmas. I have been wearing a pair of snowflakes myself.
I will share a photo of some of my bag charms in the coming days.

My card challenge today is a more CAS style for me. I try to create cards to cater for everyone who buys at Dotty's. This card has sold well .  I am having a giveaway at the fair in return for some feedback which will be very useful for info for my future makes.
I used a very old and retired Visible Image stamp which I stamped, clear embossed and then added a little touch of Glamour Dust. The sentiment is LOTV. The dies cuts are Tim H, MB and Marianne.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges
