Sheep

While making sheep cards for my niece, I was inspired to make some new styles of sheep for the Etsy shop. These little guys have a primitive look to them.
 He comes in a tree ornament form and a pin/brooch form.
 
These guys are less primitive but equally adorable.
You can also get them in ornament or pin form.
 
Oh, then I thought I would post a pic to show my table isn't always as cluttered as my mind.

Card Buffet

I had my first ever card buffet last week and it was a hit so I think there will be another in the future.  I have a better feel for what the people want and can offer more options without a lot of extra work.
Here are the projects.
These were the tags I offered and they sold out.

The gift card holder sold out as well.  I even sold the sample one.
I used a bunch of different designer paper for these and the music one sold out immediately.
I made extra of these 'cause it seems I'm always out of sympathy cards, so I figured it they didn't sell I could use them.
I had a lot of these left over and I guess it's just to limited as to who it would be used for, as I took a couple of the left overs and stamped trees on the other side, now it's more versatile.  Clever, aren't I?
I did the same thing for this one.
These are kind of  wintery generic cards.
These two are my favorites.  I can't get enough of the window frame cards and I love the vintage fawn designer paper.

Sheep Cards

My niece special ordered some sheep cards from me. She has a flock of all sorts of sheep that she raises for the wool.  She has them sheared, the wool cleaned, then she spins it into wool, dyes it and knits with it.  These are the cards I made for her.

They inspired me to design a couple more sheep items for my Etsy shop.

My mind is as cluttered as my table

This is what my dining room table looks like when I'm designing cards.

All I have to say for myself is uff dah! It's no wonder I can't sleep at night. My next event is going to be a card buffet where I have all the cutting and stamping done so they can drop by and choose as many cards as they want, then take them home and put them together at their leisure.  So far I have a guy card, a sympathy card and a baby/toddler card cut stamped and ready to roll.  Now I need to clear off my table so I can think straight, then I'll be working on a couple of winter themed cards.

Cards for my customers

I tried really really hard to make them all the same, but I just couldn't do it. In fact, there are no two the same.

 This one I put vellum in the center.

I stamped the inside with versa mark.
