One more for sale

Hello lovely bloggers,

I hope you are all happy, healthy and enjoying crafting in all it's glory.
It is 9.30 pm as I write this post and I have to say that I had a pretty good day even though the morning started with the telly talking about Steve Jobs. I was a big fan of his and I did have a tear in my eye. 
Anyway on a positive note, started with my Christmas cards - happy about that because I want to make enough to sell at the Bazaar.
I have some good news - met one of my sweet friends in the playground and she said that she would be happy to put up posters for me at the Spanish Embassy. I was almost dancing with delight... how nice is that!

This is a pretty quick and simple card I made a few days ago while I was experimenting with this background stamp. It is a great stamp and I could have done more justice with it. Never mind!

Supplies:

Base cardstock - purple
Back ground stamp - All night media
Butterflies - K and Co
Border punch - MS with purple ribbon underneath
Insert - Turquoise card stock

I am going to enter this for:
http://flutterbywednesdays.blogspot.com/ - butterfly and anything goes
http://mymumscraftshopchallenges.blogspot.com/ - all creatures big and small

Catch you soon.

Hugs,

Monica

That's great about meeting the lady that's going to put up a poster for you! You will probably have more business than you know what to do with - which is great.
LOVE this Monica! The colors are just gorgeous and it's wonderful. So bright and beautiful!

Just lovely - I have some of that mesh for years now and don't know what to do with it, you have inspired me!
It is sad about Steve Jobs, I met someone who had met him and he said he was a very nice man and down to earth.
