Playing at Making Greeting Cards

Today I played around in my studio and made a few greeting cards. Two each for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Thought I'd share with you all.

I cut a scallop circle out of nice white paper and glued it inside the black card at right so there would be a place to write!  I also used some "glossy accents" around the orange scallop for this card. I am not sure I like how that came out. For the other three I cut out the card base from 8.5"x 11" off white paper (to get two cards out of a sheet).

That is about all, since I am still off work, I will be going to the day meeting of my Foothills EGA. Hubby, who retired on Oct. 1, (not the best timing considering, but it was of the mandatory type retirement) has zero plans for tomorrow will "hold down the fort" while I am gone. Miss Maddie is going to love, love that! Then I may run some errands, not sure.

This furlough stuff is giving me an idea what retirement might be like and I LIKE it!!!! Not counting the lack of money part. Well, my retirement day will come, I will just have to hang in there.

Happy Stitching All!!!

Too Busy to Post Much

It has been one of those months (or two or three), just not much in the mood to blog. I will try and get back to it and be better for my followers.

I was hoping to sell some of my crafts at a church craft show, so I have been busy making stuff, but the show was cancelled! I have been scrambling to find a new venue, but all are full or deadlines have passed.

So.... not sure what to do. Could put them on my Etsy shop, but not sure how well they would sell there. I have a bunch of altered comp books, mini note books, some sewing kits, gift card holders, greeting cards. Mostly paper crafting stuff. Lots of work to post on Etsy if they "might" sell.

I have not been stitching much, but since I have been furloughed, I guess I will make lemonade from the lemons and STITCH!!

That is about all for now. Take care all.
