Mother's Day Greetings

Hi everyone,
   I hope all is well.  Just a few words about some new cards I made.  With Mother's Day fast approaching, yes...May 10th is almost here; I thought I better take this opportunity to get started (while I got my mojo).   Here are a couple of cards that were inspired by a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  Unfortunately, I got her name from my Lesia and I can't remember what it is. I think this card can be found on Split Coast Stampers. The link will take you to Split Coast Stampers, not the actual cards. I did alter the card and created my own measurements for each piece of the card and made a coordinating lined envelope for each card.  Being a former Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I still have a lot of the old stuff around.  It might be old but it still makes a beautiful card. The supplies I used were: Stampin' Up retired DSP, smooth card stock ( retired colours Sage Shadow and Rich Razzleberry), retired Crumb CakeTaffeta ribbon, retired stamp set Well Scripted (one of my favs), Recollections white cardstock, Paper Studios pearls. And what even better...I sold the burgundy one already in my on-line store My Enchanted Paper Creations.  Well once again, thank you for stopping by.

My Enchanted Paper Creations Store Open!

Hey everyone! 
Good news (I think)!  My scrappin' BFF Lesia of Mema's Crafts and our newest paper crafting convert Lady Kre of Fun KREations have encouraged me to sell some of my handmade paper crafts.  It took them a little nudging but eBay surly pushed me over the edge with their jacked-up fees!!  So, I am open for business! As tedious and detailed as paper crafting can be, I think opening the store was work!  And you know me...if I think it's going to turn into a 9-5 type situation...that's a wrap!! I already have a full-time job.  However, if I thought it would pay off my student loans, I'd be working like a blessed Hebrew.  Ok, so a little bit about the store; the name...wait for it...MY ENCHANTED PAPER CREATIONS!!!  I know, imagine that, very creative wouldn't you say?   And of course no store opening goes without issues. For the most part I think I worked them out.  We (meaning me) are still in the probationary period with the running of the store thing, so there are a limited number of cards in there currently.  Next month I will decide if I want to take it to the next step and pump up the volume of cards to sell.  Below is the newest card with the matching lined envelope available in the store now. 

Supplies: Creative Imagination patterned paper, Michaels Vanilla CS, Spellbinder die templates-Basic Banners 3, Nested Lacey Pennants, Labels 11, and Grand Labels 11, Stampin Up stamp set Bring On the Cake, Cherry Cobble Stampin' Write marker, Studio g Alphabet Stamp Set, WOC rose buds, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Other supplies: clear Velcro dot, Hemp, corded ribbon, hot glue,
