So excited!

SO! I'm back! It's been a few days, but I'm getting back into the swing of things! I had a great time visiting with my sister Ashley this weekend! We even had a girl day in Wilmington- it was a really nice break for me. We toured the One Tree Hill set and fantasized about stealing things.. lol.. then we went and walked around the riverfront and window shopped. Had a great crab cake dinner at a restaurant called George. Very nice day!

I had a group of cards that I was sending home with my sis to sell from her desk at work. I didn't really think I'd get too big of a response, maybe sell a card here and there. Well, Ashley called me at noon yesterday (she had been at work for only 2 hours) and told me that she had already sold 6 cards! YAY! Then, she called me on her way home and said that she had sold 14 cards total! So I got to work making some more cards- people were actually requesting different cards! That is so exciting! And it's nice to have a little extra papertrey money in my pocket! I've got quite a wish list!

So here are a couple of the cards I made to send off to her!

The first one is an anniversary card. It's a super simple layout with some patterned paper and butterflies punched out with my ms butterfly punch. I love the sentiments in PTI's wishing you set and I can't stop using them! Not that that's a bad thing!

The next one is a card I made using PTI's life set- I just got this set and I've been itching to use it for a couple of weeks! I love the new bitty box patterned paper, too! So cute! The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages. I stamped the background with polka dot basics and then went back and filled in some of the open polka dots with the small flower center from floral frenzy!

Hope you like the cards! Gonna be spending a lot of time crafting over the next couple of days- I'm sure I'll have more to show you!
