Topiaries Swap Card


It has been a busy weekend here with lots of sports.  Glad to have Monday roll around and getting back to work in a nice quiet house.  If you missed my Birthday Blog Candy post, you can see it here for a chance to win some goodies.  Thanks to everyone who sent off birthday wishes to me, I appreciate them.  Enjoyed most of the day with family, a good sushi lunch with my SIL and a great present from the family of a digital picture frame for my office.  I uploaded over 600 photos to it already and it's got so much more room left to add more.

This card was created using the Stamp of the Month at Clear & Simple Stamps called Topiaries.  I've seen some great work with this set and being that I love flower stamps, the Topiaries is growing on me.  I sent this out to the girls who participated in a swap I recently hosted.  I've been doing a few more swaps on a group that I'm on, not because I need more cards, I actually need to get rid of a lot, but because I am enjoying seeing what others are creating.


I did send off 4 cards in the mail today, so was impressed with myself for that!  Have you sent any of your cards out lately or are you like me and hoard them?  I'm doing a Holiday craft fair in November and so I'm going to be packaging up a lot of my cards to sell.  Anyone have any other great suggestions for top selling items at a holiday fair?

Hope everyone has a great week! 

Card details:
Cardstock: Rose Red, Garden Green
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Copics
Accessories: Button, twine, Cuttlebug flower die

Fabulous card. I am SO SORRY I missed your birthday - sounds like it was a great one. Happy Birthday Blessings late to you! When I've done Christmas craft fairs, here's a few things that sold out: Packages of Christmas cards (I put them in a plastic PTI box with a pretty "belly band"); these Santa holders always sell out http://www.starlightstamper.com/2007/11/poppin-santa-tutorial.html

or these: http://www.starlightstamper.com/2009/12/santa-theme-candy-bar-holder.html

Bookmarks. ANYTHING that can hold a treat (any of the templates I made would be good).
