It has been such a lovely 4 days off from work.
Day one: Sleep…. nothing but sleep!
Day two: The weather has been just right to have all of the windows open to let the fresh air in. I have been listening to a book on audio and making cards till my heart was content.
Day three: Was not so fun. I woke up with my seasonal allergies letting me know that a day with the windows open was a bad idea. No worries a little allergy medicine and a box of tissues and I was back to card making.
Day 4: Went to lunch to see my kiddo at her first job. She has been begging for us to go up to the restaurant but I needed to give her some time to get the hang of things before her parents came in. She loved having us there and her trainer told us she is doing a great job. Then it was back home for some more crafting time.
I think I have to be finished with the card making because I do not have anymore room in my box to carry them. I have made 200 cards just for the craft fair this year and that does not count the cards that are already in the card racks.
Pinterest has been a HUGE inspiration for me this year. When I am making cards I normally make them in batches. I figure if I am going to make the cuts for one card let’s do enough for 10 cards.
Then I set everything up assembly style. When I am making cards I love to listen to books so I like to do one job (like inking) all at once so if I get lost in the book it is ok.
Here are the cards that I have finished during the last 3 days.
This card come right from the CTMH Consultant side. The original is a 3x3 card that we use at gatherings. Just something small to showcase our products. I wanted to upsize it!
This card was found on Pinterest. The original artist is Kim Richardson and the card is a baby card. I loved the “bones” of the design so a change of papers and sentiment and you have a card that will work for Anniversary's, Wedding, Couples… The pattern paper is a retired sheet of “Bliss”.
Pinterest again: The Original artist is Lynn ( http://themangoboysandme.blogspot.com)
Her birthday card is a more lively fun card but this card is a challenge for me. I needed to work on my “flag skills” and I needed a more elegant birthday card in the card racks. I am thinking of doing this card again using the “Dotty for You” papers for some personal birthday cards.
All of the cards that I having been making will be on sale
