I made some progress last night and actually was able to get out of bed and create a card for my brother's birthday. The card posted below is not it, however. LOL The card I have posted today is a Thank You card I created and sold to a friend. That reminds me, I need to get my Etsy shop really up and running. I do have a few things on there, but not enough to really call it a "store". You can look me up under Amy'sWay in the sellers search section. There is no space between Amy's and Way.
My sweet sister-in-law placed a wonderful order with me for Christmas cards. She wants 22! I am stoked and can't wait to feel better so I can get to work on them. I have so many ideas, I only wish I had the new Jolly Holidays Cricut Lite cartridge. :( Can't find one anywhere for a decent price. Ebay has 'em, but they keep going for around $40.00!
I have another dilemma and I'm hoping for your help! I need a box in the shape of a book, made out of either MDF or chipboard, but not really wood, even though I'd take wood if that's all I can find. I hear you can find them at Michael's, however, I can't get out of the house to get there, so I was hoping to find one online! I've looked EVERYWHERE!!! I can't think of what to search for other than "box shaped like book" or "book shaped box". I've been searching for the past few days and it's driving me nuts so if anyone has any thoughts please let me know! Also, if anyone happens to go to Michael's and spot one, please note the price for me! If it's reasonable, maybe I can get myself out of bed and down there to pick one up. I'd appreciate any help on this! :o)
Has anyone noticed how many awesome scrapbooking blog hops are going on right now? I just LOVE those! I hope to be picked someday to participate in one. That is my goal! For now, I will give you a little info on the card below and how I created it...
Yellow card stock cut to 4"x5 1/2"
The pretty blue part is actually a really sturdy kind of poster board thick sticker from TPC Studio. I attached it with two yellow brads from Bo Bunny, then used a vellum sticker from a stack of vellum sticker quotes from DCWV and stuck it to the same yellow card stock, then pop dotted it. I Cricuted the word "thanks" (not sure which cart I used) in black card stock and used black card stock behind the main sticker as well. Easy peasy!!!
Hope you all have a great morning and I'll be back soon!
