World Card Making Day!

Happy World Card Making Day!

Guess what I did for this special occasion? I made a card!


I know. I'm back to the paper crafting. I thought I was done, but God showed me that I was not done paper crafting, I was just done making it complicated.

Today's card is the first card I've made in a month. And I must confess, it wasn't easy! A lot of my supplies have gotten moved around in the process, and I'm arranging and rearranging and purging all unnecessaries.

I thought I'd make it simple. A 3 x 3 card, perfect gift size. I think this card reflects my new style. Simple. Uncluttered. A nice graphic image with a little punch. And yet still in the color palette and style that suits my country primitive tastes. A little kraft card stock, a cute image from PTI (Baby Button Bits), and finally I have achieved something clean and simple!

The Great Purge is doing very well! I am updating the list to reflect pending sales. There are still some nice rare sets to be found, and a lot of great every day sets and sentiments. Get them before they're gone! And like I said, make me an offer! I'll give a discount if you purchase multiple sets!

Once the purge is under way, I plan on replacing a lot of these old sets with some fresh new looks. I'm even thinking of adding a Big Shot die cutting machine to my supply list. What do you think? Do I need one? If you have one, do you love it? I think I'd probably use it with my needle art as well for cutting out felted wool and such. I'd love to hear your suggestions!

Thanks for visiting the cafe today!
