October makes

I am rather frustrated as I have typed quite a bit of this post already and then lost it!!

It’s been a long and hectic month and right now my head feels full of cotton wool and I wonder if I should really be writing at all, but I need something to distract me so here goes take 2!

If you follow my blog you will know we spent a lot of the summer hunting elephants in Sheffield.  October marked the end of the Herd of Sheffield and an auction to sell them off.  I decided to do my bit and make some cards to mark the occasion, but whatever I might make will be small fry compared to the £410,600 made at the auction.  Not sure that my cards are that good, but they are unique and I think they are cute.  They are available to buy in my webshop with information about which elephant inspired them.

Yay just sold 3 as I type this!!  Plus a donation so £15 winging it’s way to charity.

All the elephants cards are made with cards from Dee Craft and a variety of papers including ones printed from Paper printables and craftville.  They were great fun to make.
