For Jans's Tickle a Teapotter challenge today, I am setting out my market stall with some fresh-baked pies; apple, cherry, blackberry and apple. Special orders taken for your choice!
Actually, way, way, way back I did used to bake for a Saturday market, I made wholewheat cookies, croissants (plain and filled with ham) and little savoury tomato tarts. Once I subbed for someone else whose speciality was eclairs, but there was a big discrepancy in our pricing which caused problems. And no wonder, my idea of a decent eclair was about four times the size of hers ;-), and the pricing was calculated from the cost of supplies.
No such worries here. I stamped the cloth for my stand, adding a measuring jug and rolling-pin design to it. The pie was stamped on white card and on the kraft doily centre, and pieced. The solid base layer of the doily was embossed and swiped with Vintage Photo. The card base and the gingham layer are both edged with stitching lines. Sorry it's not a very exciting card, I'm a bit low on inspiration and energy this week.

The stamped fabric is so cute and I think the doily is the right thing to add for that country look. I would be first on line to buy food at your booth....do you have enough to feed my family for a week?

After baking your Irish Soda Bread, I would sure line up any pay serious money for all your baked treats. Everything about this is terrific Sabrina. I thought it was real gingham fabric until I read the item description, I thought it was real stitching too! I love it all and it's perfect for our Teaparty. Thank you for all that you do my friend.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Your checkered bg looks like a linen tablecloth!! I thought that was really cool and then you stamped those utensils on it - really awesome, then the dolly - really really really awesome; then the pie - AMAZING! Great card Sabrina!!

So much to like in this card. In the first place, you did perfect with the gingham stamp -- I assumed it was printed you inked it so well. The rolling pins and measuring cups add some fun to the background, and the doily looks lovely.
