Yes it is indeed! Glorious weather really can effect one's mood for the day. Here in Virginia is it sunny and in the 60's. A perfect Spring day. Even better, I can wear flip flops! Yeah! Today was also a creative day because I got a card kit from Kelly's Keep In Touch. She makes these amazing kits with lots of papers, ribbons, buttons, die cuts, stickers, rub-on's,embellies, and blank cards in unique shapes. This kit she made for me has Scribble Scrabble paper which I am now a huge fan of. Such bright and cheery patterns and in the color red! My favorite. :-) Thanks Kelly for hooking me up with this incredible kit! She will make a custom kit for you too. Check it out! Well worth it!
And of course, Monday's always mean there are new challenges so let's get to it!
First is my 2S4Y which is Kazan's #23. I missed Laura's sketch last week and was a little bummed because I have only missed once before while on vacation. I promised myself that I was going to do this week's right away to nip it in the bud so to speak. Everything I used on the card is from the kit I mentioned above except the cream card stock scallop, paint, and ink. I used the box the kit came in to make the circle.
Next is Card Patterns' #7 sketch. I looked at it on Saturday and thought, this is going to take some creativity from me because my traditional style is for paper strips to fit from side to side. After I made the first card, I had an idea that the bracket die cut and the transparency flower would look nice layered. The green and yellow polka dot paper is the cutest! I used the left over red polka dot paper to make the longest element and the rest just came together quickly. These are my favorite type of cards because once you complete them, you have the feeling of accomplishment and relief!
And if you are reading this, thank you! I was wondering if it's difficult to set up an ETSY store? I see people selling their work on ETSY but wondered about the process? My card stash is plentiful. I recently donated 50 of my cards to Pay It Forward to raise money for Autism. Yet, I still have many and yes I keep making them! So, I am curious if it is worth while to set up a store on ETSY and see if anyone is interested in buying my cards. If you have any advice, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you again for coming by and hope you have a wonderful day!
