Thanks for your kindness

Hi there!  Just wanted to show you all this set of cards I made for the counselors and me to give to everyone who celebrated counselors' week with us- we got a lot of yummy goodies! :)  Lately I've really been trying to use what I have, instead of leaning towards my hoarding tendencies!  I've had this lone piece of light blue Colorbok cardstock just hanging out in the package, practically begging to fulfill its card-making destiny, so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to use it up! :)  I wanted to keep the cards from being too feminine, as three of the cards were going to male co-workers, so I went through some old K&Co papers and thought the brown paper would work well.  The layout didn't turn out as planned, so the other K&Co paper isn't as visible as it was supposed to be, but it ties in the wide olive green ribbon, which I picked up on after-Christmas clearance at Target.  I used some of my new Colorbox inks (creamy brown and dark brown) with Melissa Frances stamps on Colorbok tags, and added a white eyelet to make sure the ribbon didn't tear the tag.  I really miss mass-producing cards, but I'm not sure if I'm going to do craft shows this year.  It's something I really have to think about, because it takes up so much of my time and because I didn't make too much of a profit from it, but I really enjoyed doing it.  I guess I'll just have to wait and see how I feel when I start seeing vendor applications again! :)  I'm off to spend the day with my boyfriend; I hope you're all having a great weekend!

Awesome cards Suzanne, perfect for girl or boy! I hope things work out for you with the craft shows. Maybe it was just the bad economy this past year but I bet things will be better this year, your cards are so cute! I haven't done any craft shows yet, maybe I'll do a small local one but probably not until next year as I know how time consuming it will be and I won't have time to do much this year because of the house, moving and way too much to do.
