This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

The three S's......

One for Samples, one for Selling, and one for Sending. Oh yeah, one more this time. It's my prototype. Not the best of the bunch but still okay to send. I really dislike making more than one of each card, but I am trying to make myself do it for practical purposes. I am happiest when I am creating without a plan, not keeping track of supplies and not thinking about making more of the same. Do you always make more than one of a card design?



Supplies:
Card stock: Stampin' Up! Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and 4 of the 5 new '10-'11 In Colors- Pear  Pizzazz, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, and Poppy Parade. Twill ribbon, button from my button stash and SU Linen thread. Stamp- Flight of the Butterfly inked with the In Color markers.

These are cute, love the different color butterflies and love how you did the ribbon.

These are just great! I find when it is time to make multiple cards it is easier when I set up an assembly line and do each card in pieces. :)

These are such cute cards, just love the butterflies and the ribbon, everything just stands out.

Since I mostly make cards to sell, I tend to make 2-4 of each. I get too bored making any more, and I don't feel creative doing it. It's all about being happy, right?! :)

I really really really like these ones!! Simple and stunning!

Well, I saw these on SC and left you a message there, but must say again that I LOVE them! And, no, I like you, like to make one of a card. I have never cared for mass production. Sometimes when in a hurry or I need to stock up on cards, I will pull out two color schemes, and make the exact same card just in different colors. But, if I plan to stay ahead, I am going to have to start making multiples! And, they are great to sell that way!

Those are very cute. I rarely make duplicate cards-mainly at Christmas or for post-Christmas thank you cards.

Very pretty with the different colors in combo with the kraft.

I rarely make duplicates of cards. When I finish with one I especially like, I say that I should make more like that - especially since I have all the design elements figured out - but I rarely do. There are just too many more layouts and color combos to try.

What great cards! I love the color combo of the tan & black with small pops of color.
