Sew many challenges- vellum

This week the challenge at sew many challenges is to make a project using vellum. I hardly use it myself and it is a shame as you can get some great effects with it and you can get so many different pattens.
This challenge has now put me in the mood to do lots more Christmas cards with vellum.
Here is mine.

100 days to Christmas!

100 days to Christmas !
Yes that's right 100 days until Christmas, where's the very thought of  this brings dread to many, i for one LOVE Christmas and us crafter's have to start early so here are my first 2 Christmas cards. I already have some orders in so i need to get going and get them done before i can make my some for my own friends and family.

I believe this is called a joy fold card. I have seen it done both vertical and horizontally. The black snow flake to the left of the card holds the card closed when needed but it can easily be opened. 
This is the card opened, it is still blank but the sentiment will be on the dotted paper.

can i enter this card into the following challenges
papercraftstar anything-goes.
frosted designs fabulous -friday-challenge-punches

Bardon flower festival and craft fair

Wow what a great weekend I've had. I always have a little feeling of why am i doing a craft fair on the morning as I'm rushing around and packing the car but once I'm there i never regret it and have so much fun not only talking to customers and selling my goods but us crafty stall holders have so much fun. I did really well today as the sun was shinning it brought the people out too.
There are some real characters who are made for craft fairs and it's nice because you can really make some good friends. A big thank you to Mrs Pugh from Mrs Pugh's Preserves and john from Waywood-creations for the chats and laughs, it was great to see you all again and look forward to next time.
