Less is More - sketch and I sold 6 cards yesterday!

Hello lovely bloggers,

I have good news to share with you - I managed to sell 6 cards yesterday to a friend. That was my first sale of the year and it happened with such ease.
I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my latest follower - Andrea Hayes. Thanks so much for following my little world of cards. 

The lady who bought them charmingly remarked that she would be happy to see cards for boys and men next time. Yes, I know I need to make more effort to make masculine cards. So in response to her request  here is my quick card for Less is More - for a man! The button punch is from Martha Stewart and the ribbon is from my stash. Have scored the card on my scoring board for added interest.

It took me no time to make this card and I am happy with my CAS creation. I could have threaded yarn through the buttons but seemed to lack patience. My perpetual excuse being that I am always in need of numbers so I try and make as many as I can without spending too much time on one particular card.


I will also enter this card in:
http://pumpkinspiceblog.blogspot.co.uk/ - blue, white and something round


Down below is something that caught my eye on Face book and I had to share it.


Wish you a happy week ahead.

Love,
Monica

Congrats on the sale of your cards and I find it difficult to make male cards, so I tip my hat to you! Two in a row...lol!

Keti said...

I can agree it's so much easier to do feminine cards. But this one is very beautiful - for men or women.

I saw you at Make It Monday. Thanks for inspiration.

p.s. my projects is 202 if you would like to stop by my blog too.
