Long Time No See...

Hi Everyone, can't believe i haven't posted in more than 2 weeks!!! It's not that i'm not making cards it's just i've had so many orders i've forgot to take photos!!!
I'd like to say thankyou to all the wonderful people who commented on my Crafty Calander DT card- i really appreciate all your kind words xx

I've got an easel card to show you today. I bourght a few new copics and pro-markers are was searching everywhere for some tutorials on how to mix them and improve my colouring. This picture definatly doesn't do it justise- it looks really wishy washy when in real life it's not!

The gorgeous papers are K+c0, ( avaliable to buy from Lora Crafts! ) and the gorgeous flowers are Prima with PM pearl brads. You can buy most of the things i have used on my card from Lyndsey at Lora Crafts in Ashmore Park... she has agreat selection of stamps, paper and embellishments including Sugar Nellie!!! And she has just ordered the new stampavir range and ladybug ink co from the NEC trade show!! :O)

Here's a side view but it's slightly blury.. i wanted to get a decent pic at 7:30 in the morning before dad sent it to the customer.

A few challenges too:

Creative Inspirations: Sepia
Simon Says Stamp: A recipie
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge: Mothers Day
Totally Gorgeous: Flowers
Every-Body Art: Easel Card
Quixotic Challenges: Something for mum

I think i fit into all of those! xx

I'm charging £2 for this card.... i'd really love to know if you think it's worth it or whether it's enough... I'm struggling slightly in decided the prices! :O)

Thanks for visting me today please leave a comment if you have time! xx

  1. Fern this is utterly beautiful, and I think £2 is just not enough, I would say more £3.50, that is my opinion, I love your work as always and so glad you are getting a wee business going...good for you, Love Avril xxx

  2. Fern what a stunning card!
    I really love this shade of pink gorgeous and your image is fabulous!
    I too think that £2 is not enough £3.50-4.00 more reasonable!

  24. Hey Fern! I'm another Fern! How fun to meet you... we share the same name, we're pretty close in age (closer than all the others I bet), we love papercrafting, and we sell cards! so fun! I will be coming back to your site often to see your cards and offer encouragement. Oh, a word about the copics you were asking about. The BEST place to go to read more is www.jennifermcguireink.com where she talks about how she uses her copics. Her cards are the best, too! Once again, lovely cards you have, and keep up the good work! from one Fern to another Fern :)
