I had a great day! I took a bunch of cards that I had made over the past months into work today and sold all but 12 of them! I even received a few orders for cards to make over the next few weeks. Woohoo! I think I am going to keep a bunch of that money aside (I sold them for pretty cheap – $2 ea., 3 for $5 or 8 for $10) and save it for my next trip to Buffalo to get some new goodies. This way, I won’t feel like I’m blowing as much household money (not that I have a specific weekly budget).

I started my Mojo Monday Week 157 card last night, but it just wasn’t coming along the way I wanted it to, so I left a big mess in my craft room and figured I’d try again today. Here is the Mojo sketch:

and here is what I came up with, which I wanted to keep pretty clean and simple:

Here is my card recipe:

Card Stock – 110 lb. White, Pear Pizzazz (SU)
Patterned Paper – Green at Heart (Basic Grey)
Ink – Momento Tuxedo Black
Stamp Set – Spiral Bouquet (Paper Trey)
Accessories – MS punch, black ric-rac, peachy-pink self-adhesive half-pearls, Prima flower, peach organza ribbon, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Fourteen

Thanks for having a look!

    Wahoo for you! I have a similar system ($2 per card or 3 for $5). It started as a card basket, and is now a card box. I still use the basket to rotate the seasonal/new cards I make. My coworkers love the system and I use the $$$ to take classes or buy new crafty supplies.

    I really love your card, the nesties set is LOVELY!
