Just a short post tonight because I realized it's been a few weeks.
I have finally got my cards organized; I have two big boxes worth. One box is full of cards I made that I can't sell for various reasons. The other is ones I am going to try to sell for the first time at a craft fair this year. It's held at my complex and I'm sharing a table with a friend. I have no idea how many people will attend or how it will go, but I want to try more seriously in the New Year to sell my cards, so I'm calling this event practice.
Anyway, the process of organizing my cards inspired me to look in my 'cards & layouts' folder and see if there are any cards I've not blogged that I have already sent out. It turns out that the cards in this post were completed and donated to the church. I found a few others I made during that card making stint I never posted. Like the originals, I photographed them before I coloured them or added sentiments so you'll just have to take my word for it that I finished them properly. ;)
These first two were definitely church cards. I just coloured them and added a simple sentiment. I recall in both cases I put the sentiment on the right hand side. On the left card, it was above the image, on the right card, it was on the side.
The Santa card wasn't for church, of course - I sent it to a friend of mine. The middle card had a sentiment added to the left of the image. With the other tree card, I ended up taking it apart and centering the image. I hated the balance issues of the original design.
I didn't have to do as much with the snowmen cards. Just a bit of Stickles for the bodies and the ground, a bit of colouring of scarves and birds, and sentiments. These actually both became birthday cards.
If you're wondering how I can remember all that - no, I my memory isn't that fabulous. I typed up some notes in preparation to posting the finished cards ages ago. I imagine I was waiting for my camera to charge and then by the time I remembered I needed to photograph the cards, I had already sent them out.
