Sunday ... belated challenge day!

Morning all
Good weekend so far? Me too, yesterday morning I was at the Solevita Craft Fayre which was really pretty cool. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't what I got! There were over 200 stalls with handmade goodies of every kind from Jalapeno jam to outdoor showers made to look like flowers! There were all sorts of dog treats, lots of knitted and crochet items, jewellery galore - oh, just lots of SCHTUFF. What did I buy? Well, not so much, mindful of space but I could NOT resist some dichroic glass earrings and a pendant in my favourite colour!!! Churlish not to really.
And now, since I missed my challenge day yesterday I have a little crafting to share with you ...
My non traditionally coloured card

And co-ordinating insert and envelope

Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Recollections three tree image stamped using Hero Arts Neon orange ink
  • Kaisercraft (NBUS) Christmas sentiment stamped using Memento grape jelly ink
  • Stardust stickles to highlight the stars
Plainly, I was still in Halloween mode with  my purple and orange!!! I will be entering this for the CAS challenge over at Simply Less Is More where their current challenge is: A Christmas card using non traditional colours (i.e. no red or green) - think this qualifies, don't you? I'll also be entering this at CraftyHazelnuts Christmas challenge - their challenge is: "SPARKLE" and for the "ALL ABOUT CHRISTMAS" challenge at the Crafty Calendar blog.
Oh, forgot to mention too, when I got home from the Craft Fayre, this little chap was waiting to greet me!

And - would you  believe it? Not only did I get to wear long trousers I also wore a long sleeved top, cardigan and a jacket!!! Yes, it was a bit cold, made way colder by the wind! And here is what I bought too ...
Happy Sunday folks

Love the card Kathy, though I don't think I could do it in orange. Loved your little visitor too.

And why not treat yourself to some new earrings etc, you can wear those home, so far, they still don't weigh the passengers, though the boss of Ryanair had that idea a good while back and decided not to, considering the uproar it caused.

Fantastic card Kathy and great non-traditional colours. Always such attention to the inside of the card too.
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
