Sold!

Over the past few weeks, I have been making a stack of cards that I was hoping to sell at a little boutique shop in a neighboring town. Last week before I left for Chicago, I finished them up and delivered them. I found out today that the owner loved them, and she paid me for the whole stack! Now I have to get busy making more! I'm excited about making a little money to help fund this addiction of mine and now I have a place for all the cards I make for challenges and such!

This is one of the cards that was in the stack I brought to the store.
Thanks for stopping by!

Anika, this is a beautiful card. I can see why the shop owner would want to buy them and receive more. It is nice to make a little extra for what you do.
