Here are some cards that I have been making with my friend Sandy.  We are going to be selling these at a flea market or craft show, with many more to come.

 This card is the outside of a retirement card.  (I will show you close ups of the cards later.
 This guy is fishing for a retirement and enjoying himself.
 We labeled this card "Uncle Louie" because he reminds of resting and relaxing during his retirement.

 This is a thinking of you card. 

 And here is a thank you card.

Starting to get busy

Ok....I am now starting to get busy and I am ready to start posting some cards and items I am creating.   I really enjoy making cards, but  I also like to create scrapbook pages.  I will start with some cards. 

This first card is a wedding card I made for a previous student.  I had him when he was in 8th grade, and his sister and I are now very friendly.  It is hard to believe that this young man has graduated and is now getting married!  Where does the time go? 

I made 3 fan fold flowers and put a contrasting color of paper as the center dot.  I then used dew drops as the center of the flower.  I used a Fiskars lace punch on the edges of the flower, before I did the fan folds.  The card looked a lot better in person.  It was made with rich, shiny paper, and looked luscious.

October is here

The air is finally starting to get a chill in it during the evening hours.  Evenings are getting dark much earlier.  The leaves are losing their bright green color turning into a bright rainbow of colors.  I have been working on cards to make for the sale at the end of the month.  I am hoping that at the sale, my friend Sandy and I can recoup some of our expenditures.  Creating different styles of cards are a creative, yet challenging to do.  If I get a chance to take some pictures, I will upload them here.
