Christmas & Mother's Day

I have been in a little card making mood this week.  But I need to slow down in that department because I am running out of room to display all of the cards.  After my last craft fair I bought two more card display stands so now I am up to four display's.

And all four are FULL!  I have been having so much fun making the cards I forgot that I need to sell them too.  (hee hee) 

Anyhoo - here are two more that I made yesterday.


I found this card design in an old CTMH catalog the patter is from Originals: Clean and Classy.  I have a really hard time letting go of my christmas stamps so the stamp image on the card is retired.  
The colors used are
Bitty sparkles just add that small touch of stars

Mother's Day

A tale of two cards

Last month I posted a 6 x 6 Mother's day card that I was making for my personal use with the mother's in my life. 

I thought it turned out absolutely fantastic and it should since I scrap lifted it directly from the current CTMH catalog.  But the 6 x 6 size means that postage was more than normal. The original card is using the Ballon Ride papers.

So I set out to make a smaller, normal card size to sell.
The smaller card is using the retired Babycakes papers.

I was going to distress the Sunset cardstock just a bit but forgot to do it on the first card then decided that I really liked it not distressed.

Colors used:
Colonial White DMC Thread
Babycakes B&T paper
Bitty Pearls for a added touch 
(Awe Man - I did not think of it at the time but I could have used Bitty Pearls and made her a pearl necklace. Oh Well.)

Now I just need to clean up my cardmaking mess in my scraproom.
