happy cards

Hello!  I was kind of wondering what to do today.  Lots on the list, just wondering what should be first.  I organized most of my 6x6 papers and I was in the middle of cutting down all of my 12x12 papers when I realized that is just way too time consuming and kind of unproductive.  I plan to sell the rest of what doesn't sell on my blog at a little craft fair I plan to attend at the end of July.  So if there is anything you've been on the fence about, now's the time to get it.  Hopefully I can sell the rest of my supplies at the fair.  There is still so much!  I'll let you know once I am confirmed for the craft fair.  Hope some of you local people visit me!

I worked on a lot of cards the past few days.  Got this cute Mama Elephant stamp set and thought I'd make a set of cheerful cards.  The background is watercolored with distress inks.  I stamped, colored with Copics and fussy cut the images out.  I like the idea of dies for the images but they are so expensive especially if you aren't going to use the dies much.  I know I only use a stamp set once or twice before it gets set aside to make room for the next cute set.  So for me, the dies are not too economical.

So tell me, what is this animal?  Haha.  I thought he is a raccoon but then my daughter questioned my assumption. 

Obviously a bunny.

Lastly, the monkey.

My son liked the monkey a lot so I made him a corner bookmark for his birthday coming up soon.  Birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.

Okay, still haven't decided what to do next.  Oh, maybe photograph my papers and list them soon.  Or craft. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card set! I know what you mean by the expense if dies especially if you don't use the stamp set often. You are so proficient at fussy cutting that you don't need dies...I am practicing but perhaps my hands are not as steady as yours. Anyway, I enjoyed seeing your cards and I'm inspired to improve my fussy cutting.

Got me, haven't a clue what kind of animal that is. Hmmm, maybe a hybrid raccoon. LOL. Really like your set of cards. So happy and colorful.
