365 Cards - #78

It is Sunday today another week over. Over on 365 Cards it is Super Sketchy Sunday and this was the sketch we had to follow

This is what I came up with. 

 I didn't get to complete the challenge yesterday as it was Market Day today and I have to get stock ready on the Saturday.   So although I wanted to play I didn't get the time.  Therefore I am getting in early for today because the markets are over now for another fortnight.  It was an excellent market today. . . the sun was shining although a bit cold, there were heaps of people attending.  The people were really lovely today and there were a lot from out of town.  I mean I live in a country town with 12,000 people and it is Sapphire country so we get a lot of fossickers throughout the year.  The sales were really good too!!  All the cards I make for the challenges I sell on my stall hehe so at least I have plenty to sell working on a different one each day. My card was nice and simple today which I don't normally do I like technical stuff and plenty of layers but I had to go with the sketch. . . nice and clean.  Well I had better go and cook dinner for the fam.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Build A Brad. 1/2 inch circle punch. Not Quite Navy stamp pad and Versa Magic Cloud White stamp pad.  Birch stick on.  Sponge Dauber.

You were quick off the mark today Michelle, I love your and great sentiment. I am glad your Market day went well. What a bargain for you to be able to sell your cards as well. I wish I could sell some cards at a market, but I too shy to go and sell them. I will have to wait for my DD (2yrs) to grow up - I will be waiting for a long time yet.

Michelle beautiful card and I loved your story about the market. I have one question what is a "Fossicker" is that a tourist?

Hey Michelle, thank you for your lovely comments and encouraging words.
I live in Walloon, just outside Ipswich on 18 acres.

Michelle, thanks for explaining what a Fossick is that is some new trivia for me as I did not know that about your city. Have you ever went and found Sapphires or are they pretty much gone because of the tourist. I love the nestabilities and have quite a few. It helps that I work 2 times a month at a LSS and get a 30% discount on my products.

Michelle your card is lovely and the sentiment sweet. You may have kept it simple but I think you did a great job with this challenge.

Congrats on selling your cards quite clever of you I would say. Have a wonderful week.
