you should have come from my talented friend, GAYLE.

due to the busy-ness of the season, i'll keep this real short.  i made one project and one card.
first, my projejct i made, actually i 're-made' an advertisment topper for my card racks i use for my shows.  i have two racks, therefore i made 2 toppers.
using: LACEY LABELS for the mats
SONGBIRD for the font
GEORGE for the rectangle welded on the bottom to hold in place.

i used DCWV-the black currant stack for the pink and black chipboard.  the petals are from my stash and a brad in the center from MICHAELS-recollections.
here is what it looks like on (one of my racks).


here, you can see the rectangle from GEORGE needed to hold it in place.

next:  the card i made for my sister in law who is from argentina and speaks both spanish and broken english.  (i had to ask her to slow down and repeat)...i've only met her once. 'it's funny, she thinks i speak spanish on facebook because i talk to her using a translater i found on google...'  tee hee, she writes me back in spanish and i can translate it back into english....bawahahahaha.  'i'm so sneaky!  shhhhh don't tell her!

using: PHRASES for feliz cumpleano (happy birthday)
and FEELING GROOVY for the star. and a TIM HOLZ die for the scalloped edge.
this is what i came up with.  i think she'll like it.

that's it for today folks.  i hope you enjoyed your visit and if you would like, please leave me a comment.  i love hearing from ya'll.

here's the line up:

please visit my friend PAT.  she always has something nice to share!

Love your sign for your cards! I am so envious of those who do the craft shows. It looks like such fun!

Connie Layman said...

I thought the same as Tracy...really jealous of being able to do what you love to do and make money too! The sign is great! How clever of you to come up with a way to communicate with your sister-in-law and so sweet of you to adapt the beautiful card for her! Awesome work as always Kat!
