November's card class

These are the cards that we made at today's card class. I had a couple errors which have now been corrected, just didn't have a chance to retake the pics. Trim ribbon and fix the embossing - thank goodness for versa mark pens!!!!

October card class - yes October

October we didn't have a card class as our consultant - Cara - her son broke his arm. So Cara made these cards for each of us. So kind of her to do. I think she is pretty much one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She is very sincere, honest and loves to make cards. She is fantastic!!!!!

swap cards

I had card club yesterday and our consultant has totes upon totes of swaps and decided to sell some of them. These are a couple that I picked up....

What am I thinking????

WHAT AM I THINKING? One thing I have to admit that is when I create, I do it for me. I know that I like most of what I do - but what about others? Through some of the stuff I have done people have said that I should look at selling it - cards, making scrapbooks, altered items, etc etc etc......Our small city has a new market that runs on weekends. I am going to set up a space there and sell my stuff starting next Sat. I TRULY need some honest feedback on what people think......would you buy it, what would you change, any other ideas????? This is just a very small start on what I am going to be doing. I will be doing cards mostly Christmas but a few birthday and other celebrations, the magnets, Christmas balls, glass blocks, teacher gifts, perhaps suckers with little covers, water bottles with the hangers......I am excited and scared at the same time - however.....Nothing Ventured.... Nothing Gained.

This is an angel that I bought which was just plain. I added a vinyl saying to her and I must say I am inlove with this product. Just curious - what would you pay for her?

She even has a light - although hard to see in the picture.
These are slate tiles that I made into coasters. Personally, I think they turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so proud of them.
Here are 2 different pictures of the magnets (same magnets) that I created using SU paper. They are approximately 1 1/4" by 1 1/4". A super simple project.

Female birthday card

This was a fun little card I made yesterday. I sometimes struggle to know how to use this buttons stamp set, but I am cool with how it turned out. Nothing fancy, just plain and simple. The lady that I am giving it to is the a very down to earth, straight forward and simple person (simple being a compliment). Hope she likes it.

Masculine birthday card

I have been so focused on Christmas in the past few weeks I forgot I have a bunch of birthdays in the next little bit. I have 7 birthdays, 1 anniversary and a party to make invitations for in the next couple weeks. AWWWWW!!!!!! I started off making this for one of the birthdays but it turned out to masculine so I can't give it to who it was intended. All the birthday's are for children or women. I also have a Christmas card workshop on Monday that I am finishing preparing for, 2 calendars to make and one more advent calendar. Good thing my kids are off school for fall break next week.... I just may need the help. I sound like I am complaining, but I actually love this!!! Creating is what makes me tick.
