Fed up & Frustrated

With Saturday's Craft Fair cancelled, due to the arctic conditions here in Scotland, I'm so frustrated that all the crafty items I've spent weeks working on are going to be staying in boxes and not earning me any money to buy Christmas presents,  so if anybody out there has got any bright and practical ideas on how I can sell some of them over the next couple of weeks I'd be delighted to hear them!


Today's card uses on of my Christmas digi stamps Pogo - half price at the moment over at Cardmadfairy's Creations,  I coloured the image with Promarkers and added glitter on his earmuffs, the papers are from PaperArtsy and the snowflake stamp, which I heat embossed with holographic embossing powder, is from Stampin Up.

I'm entering this for the challenges over at:
Artful Inkables - Die cuts or punches
Digital Tuesday - Digi stamp and animals at Christmas (hope my penguin counts?)
Karber Weekly - Digi stamp & sparkle
Stamps R Us - Holiday cards
Crafty Pad - Snowflakes
Scrappy Frogs - Christmas
Woodware USA - Anything goes
Crafty Little Place - Anything goes
Scrap-Creations - Anything goes

Oh I just love this little penguin! I hate it when you prepare so much for a craft fair and it falls through! I've been through that before. Good luck with everything! On the bright side...I wish I were there to play in the snow. I LOVE it!!!

I'm sorry your craft fair was a bust and got canceled. I hope you are able to sell your items. I did one this weekend and there weren't any sales so I'm using mine for teacher's gifts. Thanks for joining us at Going Grey with Scrap-creations.
