Selling cards and the return of my mojo . . .

Hello there.  Sorry for the month long absence again but I have been busy being crafty.  I said I would let you know how I got on re. selling my cards.  Well, rather then put them on ebay which is a lot of work what with listing them, then posting them and then all the fees/costs involved I thought I'd try just selling them at our shop (we have a take away) even if it isn't really a place you would expect to sell them LOL.  So I just decorated a small box and put a selection in and plonked them on the counter and I'm happy to report they are selling  . . . whoo hoo :D  It's a great feeling.

I'm averaging about 7-8cards a week and it's been over a month now so I'm slowly eating into my stash of completed cards.  It always surprises me what cards sell as it's not always the ones I think are the nicest ones but that's good I suppose!  Think my pricing them at £2.50 each or 2 for £4 has been a good tactic as they seem to go for 2 each time :)   So after my first sale it got my mojo going again and I've been making a few more cards as I'll run out soon at this rate.  This was the first one (although it since hasn't sold LOL)
I used a cute CC Designs image I had in my coloured up pile and teamed her with some MME papers, Viva Decor pearl pen, MS border punch and a bit of seam binding to make the bow .  Decorated the inside to match.

I also had my first commission order for 2 60th birthday cards which I will post later to show you and then I've got a couple more cards but will spread them out and schedule them for the rest of this week.  So a bit more activity this week from me.  Until my next post,
