Another Craft Fair

So I participated in a craft fair this past weekend. This was not the first time that I've done something like this - as my sister so nicely reminded me. My first craft fair was at National Public Radio in the summer of 2005 when I was working there w/a group of interns. That was nice and fun - both the craft fair and the interns.

I had my cards and some altered mailboxes. There was a low turnout, but I met some wonderful folks. I have another craft fair in two weeks.

Traditional Green and Red Holiday Cards

I've been making lots of holiday cards using Basic Grey patterned papers. I love their papers. I like the color schemes because they are so diverse in terms of matching embellishments to the paper.

But they don't have a lot of the plain ole green and red. And since I am selling some of my cards, I thought that someone just might want the basics.

So here it is:

patterned paper: KI Memories and Creative Imaginations
card base: Halcraft
cardstock: craft supply
circle punch: EK Success
stickers: American Traditional Designs
ribbon: American Crafts, Joanns and unknown
