Craft Show!

I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday last weekend. It took me ten minutes.
Then I thought, "that was easy. I'll make another for the craft show!" So I made a variation of the same card:

And here is your announcement folks! The craft show will be:
In case you can't read the wrinkly flyer I took a picture of, the craft festival will be at Mandarin United Methodist Church on San Jose Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida!! Please, please come out and say hello!!

Happy crafting!

I decided after making the doily card in the previous post, that I wanted to used that stamp set (Merci) to make a set of cards. I used the same color theme of Stampin' Up! paper: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.

These came together so quickly and I am really getting excited for the craft show!
Happy crafting!

The Latest

All the following projects are for the craft show coming up in less than a month!!
This frame was just a plain black frame. Nothing exciting about it. I thought about adding color, then I changed my mind because I had the idea to use white and make it elegant. I used some Stampin' Up! rub-ons. It would be great for a wedding photo.
This is a quick card I put together. I loved how feminine these little doilies make a card look!
Christmas in the country!
Simple with silver:

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

I know, I know. That's so original. It's true, though! But before we get to that, here are a couple of projects I've worked on for the craft show. (Which, by the way, I found out is October 17. More details on that soon.)

First, here's a card I created using "A Tree For All Seasons" stamp set. I love, LOVE the stamp set! It is just so cute and I love using it.

For this simple and quick project, I used a Stampin' Up! rub-on. I love rub-ons. :) This is just a cute little jar that you can use to put little candies in and give as a gift, or you can store small craft items like brads or buttons. It sure looks cuter than a plain, naked glass jar!

I love notebooks. Always have. But spend a little time with one and give it some tender loving care and voila! They go from drab to fab!

Now for the Christmas stuff. :) It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! I decided (with the help of my mom) I need to have a good selection of Christmas cards/crafts available at the craft show seeing as how it's so close to December.

This first card I created around the bow. I was just playing around with ribbon and decided to make a bow and here's what I ended up with:
I love this next one. I love it so much I decided to make 4 identical cards to sell as a set. It just makes me want to go make a mug of hot chocolate and curl up on the couch with my sweetie to admire the twinkling lights on the Christmas tree. :)
Here's the "Tree For All Seasons" again:
Such a romantic wreath, right?! I got the idea for the wreath from Splitcoast, but the card design is mine.
There you have it! That's what I've been working on for the past few weeks in between all the birthday celebrations. :)

Happy crafting!
