Mojo 217–SIC 117, my FIRST craft fair and a FREEBIE for YOU!

Where has the time gone?  Seems like yesterday I posted last but it has been a week or so.

In between then and now I took part in a local craft fair for the first time in my life.  It was a very positive experience for me, on the whole. The only glitch was arriving to find the spot I’d paid for and reserved was taken!  The merchant had set up the entire table with their wares – jams, jellies and whatnot.  It was FULL.

I mean, how could I be ok with Mr and Mrs Santa if I’d been a grinchy grouch?

The confusion was not on the part of the organizers and as I had only needed the electric for a set of mini lights on my display, and being it was Sunday morning I decided to make things as easy as possible for everyone.  I said I’d go “wherever” – which in the end wound up being the perfect place to be. 
I’m “doing” another fair this weekend beside my lil buddy Mel O – her very first ever sale too.  She’s going to sell her beautiful beeswax candles (mmmm, can smell them now) and also some crocheted “Travel Angels” her Mom made too.  I’ll post about that later. 

On to my card for this week which is covering for two card challenges. 
Mojo Monday 217


Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenge 1:17 Matthew 6:25-34

Scripture: Matthew 6:25-34 ".... Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?...."


ChallengeMake a card/project that features a bird, such as in the patterned paper, a stamped image, a charm, etc.


Here is my take on these two challenges (combined) which I am doing along with my Sister in Law Judy.

Mojo-217---SIC-117---Barb-Derksen

I did some recycling with this card – the two sweet birds came from a used greeting card (a woman at our local thrift saves them for me) I matched it with coordinating paper in colors which complemented the graphic.  The stamp is a little Studio G. 

The square button – well, thats my very own design, and I’m going to leave you a link here to download either the png files or the .studio files so you can cut your own 2 layered square edged buttons!

Just click on the graphic to download the files – these files will also be added into both the “Tabs” at the top of my blog under “free PNG carding templates” and also “free Silhouette .studio files” – always FREE, always available.  Please use these for your personal use (unless you consult with me – I’m pretty easy going) and don’t share my links but have your friends come pick them up for themselves. 

Happy creating!
