I've taken the plunge and baby girl card

I've done it, I've taken the plunge. I opened up an etsy store. You can see it on the right hand column of my blog. If you get this post by email, you would have to click over to my blog, by clicking on the title of the post. It took me 6 long years to finally decide that my cards where good enough to sell. So please go take a peek at the store, there are only a few things in it right now, but I'll add more as I go. If you know anybody who likes to buy handmade cards or anybody at all who you think would enjoy them, please feel free to send them over to the store. I would greatly appreciate it.

The other night, I stamped, stamped, stamped. It was great! This is one of the cards that I made. I think it's super cute and I love the scallop trim frame all the way around the elephant. It's a pretty tricky technique to figure out, but once you do it a couple times, it get's easier. If you're one of my customers and you purchase the boarder and corner punch from me, please see me for some training.

Angela's helpful hints:
-color combination: melon mambo, pretty in pink, whisper white, chocolate chip
-Need just a little something on you're card to give it that finished look try some brads!
-adding a strip of designer paper is a great way to add some "pop" to you're card.
-Stampin Up's melon mambo polka dot grosgrain ribbon is double sided. Use both sides when tying your not to get a great look.

Starting today I'm taking in a newborn 5 days a week so we will see how this all fairs with my blogging and crafting time. Really it's all about time mangement and that's one of my goals for the year, to get better at it so we'll see. Wish me luck.
Have a great day, happy stampin!
