I had been telling friends in work that I had started making cards and they ask me to bring some in so that they could have a look.  I was a bit shy but thought 'sure why not'!!  So I brought in a selection and was pleasantly surprised when one of the girls ordered 5 cards!!!! 5, I couldn't believe it.....I was sooooooo chuffed, especially as 2 of the 5 she wanted were my more unusual cards, that I thought no one but me would like.

One of the cards she asked for was a baby congradulations card for a friend that was due to give birth.  As she didn't know what her friend was having she asked for neutral but cute!!!  I had just got another Penny Black hedgehog stamp (how cute is this little guy) from Crafty Angels so I decided to make a card using him and went for a colour theme of Lemon and Green.

I decided to use the card as my entry to this weeks challenge over at The Crafty Angels Blog.  The challenge this week is 'Buttons and Bling', two things I LOVE LOVE using on any project!!!  So I added some glitter card stock which I matted hedgie on and some gems as my bling, as well as some little yellow buttons.

My friend Ann was delighted with the card and I was thrilled to make my first sale!!!!

thanks for looking


  1. Congratulations on your first sale and wow what a cute little card!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Char, and now there'll be no stopping those orders coming in - I am not surprised they wanted to buy, because your cards are clean and neat and I think you will do very well.
    thanks for helping yesterday - it was great to meet you and I am sure there will be lots more crafting and nattering going on over the next few months
