Happy Monday everyone!

We had a very good weekend in our household.  Saturday, I worked up some greeting cards; then Sunday, my husband and I went with a couple of friends to the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Seattle, Washington.  It was a great event with yummy samplings, informative meetings and workshops, and great information and contacts to help my husband in crafting his chocolates.

Ok, off to the cards...I wanted to work up some quick, simple and inexpensive greeting cards.  Here is what I came up with:

Base paper Garden Party (pretty paper bloc - Marianne). Blue ribbon is Ghirardelli reverse side. Silver, Copper & Gold studs (made by me).

Base paper Butterfly Glade (wild rose studios). Basic Green ribbon and White paper doily.

Base paper Blackberry Lane (wild rose studios). Green lace. Dogs piece is edged in French Blue (cats eyes).

Base paper Butterfly Garden (wild rose studios). Basic Blue matt. Petite Stitch White ribbon (sweet petites). Green Pearl (kaiser scrapbook) in middle of Pink and White Flower pieces.

Base paper Dog Bones.  Maroon sheer ribbon. Dalmations piece is edged in Lipstick Red (cats eyes).

Base paper basic Orange-Brown plaid, Dog Bone ribbon with Dog Paw brad.

Base paper Antique Library (wild rose studio), basic Red cardstock matt. Sheer Red ribbon, and 2 Flower pieces with Green rhinestone (kaiser scrapbook).

Base paper Peach Blossom (wild rose studio), Purple matt and sheer Pink ribbon.

Base paper Music and Gold stock ribbon.  Gold, Silver & Copper star studs (made by me).

These Dog pieces are from Pampered Pups collage pack (tj designs).  I've had this awhile and just didn't know what to do with it.  Perfect for these simple basic greeting cards.

All these cards are size 5½ X 4¼ inches, blank inside and come with matching envelopes.

When I set out to do these cards Saturday, I was planning to do Portrait style.  Did I get any?  So, I decided to try again...

Base and matt paper Bluebell paper pack (wild rose studio). Silver ribbon and 3 Green blings.

Base paper Letters from Paris (wild rose studio), dark Blue matt and braided Purple ribbon.

Flight of Fancy base paper (wild rose studio) and sheer Lavender ribbon.

Butterfly Garden (wild rose studio) base and matt papers. Gold sheer ribbon and 3 pearls (kaiser scrapbook).

Finally!  Some nice portrait style cards.  Again, all are blank inside for personal messages, come with matching envelopes and are size 4¼ X 5½ inches.  These collage pieces come from Curious Kitties collage pack (tj designs).

All these cards are priced between $2.50 and $3.00 and will be available at our holiday craft shows.  Be sure to come out and pick out your favorites.  Keith will have his etched glassware and handmade chocolates, so start thinking Gifts!
