Cards and Promoting Craft Business

These past few days have been great, I have been busy creating and feeling inspired.  It always helps when the weather cools off a little or we have a little rain, I am the opposite of most people I know and these types of days become my most productive.  Perhaps it is because I live in a fairly warm climate all year round and never have to deal with the extreme cold temperatures or constant rainy days - but we do get humidity and a lot of it and that is the worst thing for depleting energy levels.  So I do find myself loving days when the humidity is minimal, the weather is a tad cooler and my creative juices start flowing!
Here are a few of the cards I have been making in the last few days:

This is a cute patchwork style with a little owl

This was just a fun design which I really enjoyed making

This card was interesting to do, attempting to do the inking of the words in different colours

This was made using a new set of stamps called Dreamer and was a favourite with all the girls in our family.
If you are looking for a great set of stamps to make cards, particularly for the pre-teen/teen age group, I highly recommend this set.   

The big news in my last few days of being productive is that I have finally taken the time to set up a Facebook Page to promote my business:  Karen's Facebook Page
Facebook is a great way to connect with people and I know I should have done this a long time ago.  I will be posting things I make on my Facebook page too, so please be sure to take a look and Like my page so that you don't miss out on any updates in my little crafty world.  Between my Blog and Facebook page I will hopefully keep things updated regularly.
