We've had the usual busy few days and I did a fair last Sunday - which was very quiet! Although I do love the sunshine, it doesn't do much for business at craft fairs as I think people would rather be out and about lol! Hey ho. But chatted to some friendly stallholders, and it was suggested about trying selling some of my items on Etsy. Most of the cards or crochet items I make tend to be for orders from friends, etc., with the 'advertising' done via "word of mouth". I'd looked at Etsy before and so decided to give it a go! If you haven't heard of it, it's a great online sales site for all things handmade, with a huge variety of crafts and goodies. So I've added a few things to my 'shop' on there and the link is HERE. It would be great if you could have a look and let me know what you think - I'd really appreciate the feedback! It's quite a new thing for me - especially being something of a techno-phobe! - but anything is worth a try! As and when I make new things I'll be adding some to the Etsy shop - and keeping my fingers crossed!
The card I have to share with you today (that has just been added to the Etsy shop!) is one using a cute LOTV stamp
Definitely not a CAS one lol! But I thought this would be a lovely 'special birthday' card, sold as a boxed one, so I could add lots of lovely flowers.
The image has been coloured with copics and a touch of pencil.
The backing papers and sentiment stamp are from LOTV and the flowers are from WOC. The die cuts are the LaLaLand banner and Marianne hearts, and some added stitching to finish.
And the inside has been decorated to match!
I hope you like it! Do please have a look at the Etsy site - and don't forget to pop in at my 'shop' (Crafts By Tilly).
Let me know what you think! And if you also sell your crafty creations on Etsy please let me know - I'd love to have a browse.
Well, as the sun is out I'd better get some more laundry out to dry lol! I've been washing everything that isn't nailed down - it's so lovely to get everything refreshed for Spring!
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments - and support!
