It's Goodie Time!!

Hi Stamping Friends!!

It's Goodie time!!  Goodies Cookies that is!  Yesterday I brought 70 unique, hand-crafted greeting cards to their adorable bakery to sell.  I had a variety of birthday, baby, wedding, and Valentine cards.  I've been stamping my little tail off during Christmas vacation and now my play days have come to an end.  But I have lots of pretty cards to show you because of it.  And I got to enjoy the yummiest cookie too!

FOUR FRAMES  #123442  $15.95

Stamps:  Four Frames, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Fine Flourish
Paper: Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Accessories:  Framed Tulips EF, Designer Frames EF, Decorative Label Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Basic Pearls, Crocheted Lace Trim, Pink Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Felt Flowers (retired)

This started out as a CASE of an amazing card by Carrie Gaskin and then morphed into something that hardly resembles the original.  But I'm so glad for the inspiration!!  This card uses all current stamp sets, just a few retired accessories.  You could easily change the pink grosgrain ribbon for the current satin ribbon.  And you could use the white crocheted Fleurettes and page 198 for the felt flowers.  I've been stashing those flowers away for quite awhile and finally decided they needed to be used.  Why do I collect all these fabulous products and not use them?  No one is going to find enjoyment from them if they are laying in a drawer somewhere?!!  Letting go is so hard!!  And these are just craft products after all.  It's not like I gave birth to them!!!  :)

Something new I'm starting with the proceeds from the sale of my cards.  I decided to donate 50 cents from each card to the Reformed Church in America Feed One hunger relief program.  Our family is on a quest to spend less in order to give away more.  I figure this is just one more way we can do that.  I'm hoping to get my cards in another local store.  I stopped by there today, but the folks "in charge" were not there.  So now I get to be nervous for a few more days.  :)
