Character greeting cards

Lots of people asked at various craft fairs for more manly cards. So in my quest for finding something suitable, I found these AMAZING Marvel papers. Oh my word, how much did I enjoy making these cards!! I also found some Bagpuss decoupage papers, so I've got some 3D cards which are suitable for men or for women. Along with my Mr Men and Little Miss cards, I think I've got something to suit men and women without them being soppy, too girly, or boring. Perfect for retro-tastic greetings, or for that special geek in your life.

I'm not putting them on TSUK or eBay or anything, but I wondered whether to bother photographing them - I'm taking them to a Pesky Party in a week or two, so if you're interested in them, let me know.

Other than that, I've been passing out with a migraine every couple of hours. I've had 2 triptans and it's not going. I missed the museum and I missed CBT this morning. Here's hoping it goes away soon.

finish this as the little pearl buttons you sent were perfect for her

Fashion feature

This might be a sign of the apocalypse, but I've been featured in a fashion blog. Yes, me. It's a really nice article, because it's an interview, but Melissa has also been soooo nice about me.

Claire, the cupcake dress is featured again if you're interested, and also Tarah, the fascinator you made me is there too! Melissa, don't know if you want to mention those two? Miss Needles made the fascinator, and Eternal Magpie made the dress.
