Craft Fair Recovery

I had a table at a local craft fair yesterday for the first time in a long time.  Here are some of my favorite cards that I had for sale:
I made this card using watercolor paper, watercolor pencils and an embossing folder.  I learned a trick awhile back about putting on brads.  If you use a tiny hole punch first before inserting the brad it saves the paper from getting crumpled when inserting the brad.
 For this Get Well card I used the Cricut Wild Card cartridge to cut out the band aids and a small punch for the heart.  The white background is a diamond design made with an embossing folder.
 This Father's Day card was inspired from a card online.  I had to look up some ideas online to figure out how to make the bow tie but it was pretty simple.  I love how the patterned paper really looks like a fabric that a men's shirt would be made from.

 The daisy stamp on this card was stamped onto watercolor paper with black archival ink so that I was able to use watercolor pencils and a wet paintbrush to color in the daisy.
 The party hat on this card is from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge.  It ended up being a happy accident.  I was originally going to have 4 hats like the card that inspired this one but they ended up being too big so I just made these with one hat each and completed the look with the embossed number paper.
Please contact me at my Facebook page if you are interested in purchasing any of these cards and to see some of my other designs.
