Aghhh …. What Have I Done?

While hopping yesterday I stumbled upon a blog that was using a covered button as an embellishment on a card.  Hmmmm, the cogs slowly turned round in my brain, as I remembered the box of badges I made using old embroidered table/tray clothes, when I first got my Bandai Super Badge-It Badge Maker from e-bay for 99p. I later acquired a smaller version for 10p, including badge blanks, from a local carboot sale because the lady couldn't face taking it back home again!

Well, to cut a long story short, I thought I had nothng to lose if I opened a little esty shop – starting with these four badges, to test the water. Selling and mailing in dollars has confused me greatly, I have probably made a right pigs ear of it, but nothing ventured ......

I also thought that if I have time this weekend I would have a go at adding one to a card, taking the pin off, to see what I can come up with .... perhaps, for once, I can be on trend!!!
