    aww thank you! i know what you mean, i started off with a few bits and pieces but it gets a bit addictive - i have to be very strict with myself or i'd just end up spending a fortune.....i already spend more than DH realises, but we won't tell him that!

    I have managed to get a few pounds back from them being sold in one of my local shops, but it's nowhere near a profit!

    Lots of shops sell less expensive products I've found, and if you are careful with what you buy it doesn't have to be really expensive.

    The cards are lovely :hug2: I wish I could do things like that :shrug:

    Card making and scrapbooking are things I have never really done, I did think about it as a way of having a hobby/job from home but I just wouldn't know what to charge.

    Now if it was a cake that would be different :lol: but then I never used to know what to charge for the cakes either :lol: :lol:

    Wow, your cards are beautiful, I know you said you sell them in a shop, have you tried Ebay - I make and sell card toppers and have sold hundreds on it and achieved some really good prices too! I did have to laugh at you spending more than DH realises - I have tons of stuff that he thinks arrived with the fairies :sorry:

    Mandy, it doesn't have to be expensive, I love to make toppers for my cards out of tiny seed beads and they cost just peanuts to make and are really easy to do, it's very therapeutic too :wave:

    thanks Wendy! I'd love to be able to make really good cakes....I'm a bit hit and miss with those!


    Thank you! I've often looked at toppers on ebay - wonder if I've seen any of yours!

    Trouble is I've bought a few bits off Create and Craft recently - he's seen the credit card bill - whoops!



    Mandy, really - give it a try. You can get card making/craft magazines that come with bits and pieces to get you started. :yes:

    Could you post a picture of your "toppers"? I'm trying to envision what they could be, but I'm not sure I know what you are talking about.

    Oh, I love the card!!! How gorgeous! The sparkly paper really sets it off.

    And the toppers are great! With my eyes, I probably wouldn't make it past the threading the needle part, tho... LOL
