Sharing is Caring

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

A lot of friends and family have told me that I should make cards and other items so I can sell them, I really want too, but I have a couple problems.
  1.  I don't have enough time to make a whole stock of things to sell
  2.  Every time I make something give it away right away!
I guess for now I'll just have to take orders or something. I made a bunch of cards over the last couple weeks, here are some of them that I wanted to share. Enjoy!!
I love this monkey from Sugar and Spice. I embossed the background using the Swiss Dots folder and the ribbon is from Martha Stewart :)

I got the dolphin from Life's a Beach, I didn't have two shades of gray so to make one a little darker, I brushed my watermark ink pad over some of it. I used the same ink pad to stamp on the swirls in the background. I got the candy machine from the Sweethearts cartridge and embellished the card with some shimmery paper and buttons.

For the monkey I used the the Sweethearts cartridge and for the turtle I used the Life's a Beach cartridge. I didn't like that you couldn't really see the eyes and ears on the monkey so I outlined it with a white gel pen. I also didn't like that the turtle shell was so plain so I added some stickles to it.

I didn't have anything "golf" so I just used a circle from the Sweet Treats cartridge and used the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and turned over the image. I also used a cupcake topper from the Cricut Lite Cupcake Wrappers cartridge. I got the giraffe from the Sugar and Spice cartridge and embellished the card a little with some buttons, ribbon, and stickles.
