A Challenge Card and Some Shop News...

First off today - I have a card to share that I created 
for the challenge over at 

It is a super CAS (clean and simple) card
thrown together with some MME paper, a button, and some twine.
The sketch is show below...

Second bit it news...
I have been working on moving my handmade items from my 
Etsy Shop 
my second Etsy Shop....

I felt that it was time to separate the two and try it this way.
My first shop is for crafting supplies and most of the traffic there is from shoppers
looking for the items that they can use in their own creations. 

My second shop (I'm hoping) - will carry all of my own handmade items and will
draw the shoppers simply looking to purchase something handmade!

Of course, the shops will "cross reference" each other so 
it will easy to find them both!

I truly appreciate all of the business I receive from all the wonderful crafty 
people shopping on Etsy!
Thank you!!

Paper Cord and a Card

Sharing a quick birthday card today.
Simple CAS layout.
The bow was made from the paper cord that I now carry in the shop.
What I love about this cord is that you can almost "mold" it a little and
give your bows a little extra.
I curled the tails of the bow around a pencil to curl them a little.

This cord is available in my shop in 
8 different colors!!

You can find them

Another quick CAS holiday card.
I love that there is no red or green.  Nothing against those colors, but
sometimes it nice to step away from them for a Christmas card.  
I used one of the papers from the October Afternoon - Woodland Park line.
Added a show flake die cut (PTI),
button, and
Very similar to the last card a posted...
A CAS card like this could be easily mass produced 
to send to family and friends for the holidays.
