Trying to get a few greeting cards finished that I started a year ago or so.  Here is one of the cards I stitched back then and is now completed.

Several weeks ago, I started playing with Circle Flip-It die-cuts to create new greeting cards.  Wow!  Am I having fun!

Whew!  These are fun!  However, I have a problem with them.  Regular card stock is too weak for the folds of the cards. They separate in no time.  I have tried several varieties of heavier card stock, but not much better.  After visiting Urban Scrapbooker, I picked up a couple of sheets of heavy card stock that may work.  I need to work with it a little bit more to be sure.  Stay tuned on this.  In the meantime, here are some more greeting cards created for our Holiday Craft Show stock:

Love this two-layered Seattle skyline design!

Since we live in the Puget Sound area of Washington state (Seattle area), there are a lot of Seahawks and Sounders fans.  I almost sold out of Seattle greeting cards at a show in September, so I had to restock for our November and December shows.

And now for some non-sports greeting cards....

Have you checked out our new website yet?  Greeting cards, etched glassware and handmade chocolates are up for sale.  Currently, the choice of stock is small. It is difficult to keep a website well stocked when caring for a loved one and attending all their medical appointments; and still create for shows and/or upload website stock.  Thank you for your patience as we continually work on this.  Of course, if you see anything on our blog you want to buy, just let us know and we'll email you an invoice.

Our new website also lists craft shows the next few weeks.  I'll list them here for your convenience:

St. Pious X Holiday Bazaar
22105 - 58th Avenue West
Mountlake Terrace, WA 
November 14 - 15
Saturday 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
Sunday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Many of the items you see on our blog will be at the craft shows; what is on our website will not.  Hope to see you at the Bazaar!
