Sold another six cards to two ladies and have met my target

Hello sweet bloggers,

I have sold enough cards to provide for educating five children for one year... Yaaaay!!! :-) Much credit goes to my blog buddies for all love and encouragement that kept me motivated. And of course I cannot forget the support of kind friends, neighbours, acquaintances who bought the cards.
This morning, I went to a Christmas bazaar and guess what I got from there - Fiskars clear stamps and pretty ribbons. So are two quick cards supposedly (supposedly masculine) that I made with one of the stamps. Stuck buttons, ribbon and did some scoring and that's it.

Next time I will try and colour in the stamps to make the card look more alive.

Fabulous stamping on both your cards, Monica. And fabulous news that you reached your target to sponsor those children, too. You are amazing! xx

Happy crafting.

This card is lovely! You could ease yourself into the coloring bit... use a sparkle marker to color in a few areas, maybe just a few dots of color... :) I love how the bows and buttons pop.

Hi Monica - this is a great card - the monochrome is really effective and matching the ribbons and buttons is fab.
