First show of the season!

I've been MIA due to teaching and prepping for my first show of the season.  The show was small and local, but I'm was so nervous yet excited. Plus, the weather was not helping. The event was suppose to be outdoors, but it was raining and pouring at the beginning. I didn't know what to expect, especially it's so early in the season. Here's my set up:

My booth was against the wall (not ideal, but oh well). One side was all card stuff and the other are various paper crafts. 

The event turned out well. Better than I had hoped! Can't wait for the next show in a few weeks! I'm intending to post more of my crafts and shows in the near future.

Spotlight Surprise!

Happy World Card Making Day! And what a super pleasant surprise; I'm featured in the recent Simon Says Stamp's Spotlight for my previous blog post!

As for this week, the set of notecards I made below is entered into their Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes and their main blog: World Card Making Day.

I stamped, die cut, and colored all these little cute foxes a while ago. It's time for me to put them to good use. I decided to make sets of notecards. They turned out so cute! I can't wait to use them and send them to people.

The weather is kinda gloomy here in Michigan, so my room is very dark. My apologies for the dark photos. Here's a closer look:

The fox is from Lawn Fawn: Into the Woods. I used Tim Holtz Stencil: Dot Fade for the background. Then I used some Heidi Swapp Shine Ink (navy, white, & gold) for the random droplets. You can't see the white droplets on the photo, but it really brings a shimmer in the light. 

I have the deer and chipmunk cut and colored as well. I think I might use them just like this fox. Happy crafting!
