Making, Making Cards

A HUGE thank you to all my Market Customers.  2012 was an awesome year for selling my Cards.  As I look into the future, I am thinking of making things even bigger and better and opening an 'Online Store' of some kind with my Cards - it's very exciting.  I so often get asked if I sell Online, so I thought it is high time I joined the 21st Century and did so.  Stay tuned for news.

Of course, having done so many Markets in November and December has resulted in my stock of Cards being dwindled to not very many at all.  I had only 1 Christmas Card left and 1 Baby Girl Card, not to mention Female Birthday Cards and Wedding Cards that always sell well, being very low on stock as well.  So, the rest of December (as well as celebrating Christmas of course LOL) and January is going to have to be making, making Cards!  I love the creative process though, looking through all my goodies and putting together ideas.

This Thank You Card is one of the first I've done since the mad rush and it has come up a treat - I have used lots of retired products, but as with anything craft, I simply do not part with anything!

Cardstock:  Blushing Bride (retired), Whisper White
Inks:  Blushing Bride (retired), Basic Gray
Stamps:  A Word for You (retired), Mixed Bunch, Petite Pairs (retired), Fresh Vintage (retired)
Punches:  Circle, Blossom
Dies:  NA
Patterned Paper:  NA
Other:  Ribbon and Bling from stash

I am taking a break from Markets in January while I replenish my stock and get my Online Store happening, so stay tuned for more details!

Happy crafting!  Kelly

Busy, Busy

Where has all the time gone?  I would like to officially complain to the 'time thief'!  I feel like I have lost a couple of weeks somewhere along the way.  How about you?

I am frantically making Cards for the upcoming three Markets I have.  I have to say it has been sensationally busy at all my Markets, which is fantastic, but of course it means making Cards, Cards Cards.

I also have a Scrapbooking Class I need to do a Layout for, but I have the papers and photos all picked out, so I just need to get to it!  Stay tuned for photos!

I hope the 'time thief' is being kind to you, but I suspect you are all feeling the same.  But oh what fun, Christmas; I just LOVE IT!  

Happy Crafting, Kelly!
