Body in September Mind in November

It seems ridiculous that on one of the hottest September's on record I am making cards with Christmas in mind for the November craft fair!  The thought of snow is cooling me down but we rarely get snow in the South East of England. 

I am making some cards with wintry messages but they are not overtly 'Christmas'.  I love my wooden block hare stamp and have stamped it with black paint and used iridescent glitter over the top.  The card is only small; about 4 x 4 inches, and I am hoping to offer a wide range of tiny cards!

The fabric behind the card is cream velour.  It is beautifully soft and I am hoping it will add a decadent touch to my table. 

Thank you for all the suggestions of what I could sell at the fair.  I have heard that Downton Abbey inspired jewellery is popular as are chokers and tiaras!

Dear Simone, I'm so excited for you as you prepare to do this fair! I love this hare pattern and what you are doing with it! I'm preparing for a fair also and am nervous too - we will have to encourage each other!! Lovely work! xx

Oooh, the sparkles look great. What a fun idea for your cards! I can never get really excited about doing holiday themed art. Not sure why.
