A Fabulous Day!!!

Evening all, back from a very busy day. The coffee afternoon was a total success. I had a fabulous day and sold so many cards it's frightening. I was getting lovely comments from people telling me how lovely my cards were. To let you into a wee secret I never think they are very good and my family are always tell me to stop putting myself down that they are fabulous. I just couldn't believe the compliments I was getting today. When I came home I was in tears...daft old bat that I am. Anyway here is a few piccis of my tables. Yes I had 2 this year (last year I only had the one)

Wasn't really happy with the way it looked but hey with people standing around it you didn't really see the rest lol.

Just before we opened the doors.

I forgot to make signs for the Bookmarks, Notebooks and Snowman Soup doh but hey  everyone liked them and they went down a storm.

Some of the cards you won't have seen before as I didn't blog them all.....I forgot to take piccis of them all too.

I got quite a few orders too so guess who is going to be very busy lol.

I made over £100 pounds OMG however  I owed hubby £88 :( thought he might have forgot about that but he didn't.

I won a bottle of wine in the raffle so tonight I will having a wee rest and a nice glass of vino.

Hope I've not bored you lol. Have a super Saturday evening whatever your are up to.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today!

Hi Ali your tables look fantastic. I know what you mean about putting yourself down I do it all the time in fact I am always embarrassed when I hand any cards over when I have made one I have had commissioned, not that happens too often! Well done on making so much profit, at least there was still a profit after hubby got his share back :)
