Spooky coincidence Summery Special Birthday card!

Wow my title for this post is a mouth full isn't it!!
Ok get this for spooky - A lady that works with my sister has asked me to do a birthday card for her sister who is 30 on 20th September. 
The spooky part - its my 30th birthday on September 20th!! I hope her sister doesn't make cards too & my sister asks her to make a card for me because that will be just blooming weird!!!
....anyways back to my card. I have made half a never ending card using a sheet of yellow glitter 12x12 paper from the 'Citrus' DCWV papers which I have some of in my SHOP HERE
I have also used 'Fantasy' Dovecraft papers which I also stock HERE
The stickers & embossed transfers are D&D

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Papertake weekly - in the garden - I have used D&D stickers of dragonflies
Creative Craft Challenge -  Summer lovin' - don't think my card could get more summery?!

Creative Inspirations - 'use the oldest thing in your stash' for me that is the pink Happy Birthday ribbon I've had it yonks!! One of the first things I bought from The Range.
By The Cute & Girly - 'Warm summer days'

This card also fits our 2nd challenge over at Ellephantastic Challenges which is 'Birthday' I can't enter but you can so pop over & join in!!!

How I price my toys ....

.....I thought I would share with you today how I price my knitted Monsters.
I spent a long time researching how to price them and looking at how much other people charge for their toys (which are often not CE tested which they should be!)
Pricing ingredients: Cost of the products: wool, stuffing Use of equipment & other: Knitting needles, scissors, electricity for lights  My time: Designing the toy, knitting the toy, testing the toy CE Test: Making sure my toy is to CE standards
Now you have to decided how much you want to pay yourself an hour and any extra profit
How much do you get paid an hour? Shall we say minimum wage £7.50 per hour
The largest toy I make is Pookiechu (the pink one) she takes me 16 hours to make 16 x 7.50 = 120
so that makes Pookiechu £120 before I've even added on the cost of any wool etc!
I therefore decided to pay myself a lot less and she became £65 However even though I know you are paying for a quality toy made with quality products and to the CE stand…

Buttons Picture Gift

This week Murphy's friend's little sister turned one and I decided I would have a go at a buttons picture as a present for her. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Very pretty for a very pretty little girly. She's my little smiley buddy when I do the school run. No matter how I feel she makes me smile.
If you would like to order a picture gift please contact me for more details
