A Few New Cards....

Hi everyone...hope your week has started out well. Weather has been beautiful and in the high 70's which has been so very comfortable. I guess if you do not like this weather and want it warmer, you might want to blame me, because I have been asking God to "keep it cool" and He has. I don't do well in hot weather, humidity makes my ankles swell up.

Been finding some time to make cards. Thought I would share a few with you. I have all four of these cards ready to go into my Etsy store. Each card will be $3.50 + postage of $2.00. Each card will come with an envelope and be enclosed in a plastic sleeve for protection. I usually send an extra card as a bonus for shopping at my Etsy store. 
So this is my new set of Happy Birthday Cards. Each card will have a monkey dangling from the number. I can make the cards from 1 years to 100 years. I will probably put a few more into my Etsy store over the next few weeks.
I colored this card last night with copic turned out really nice and thought I would add it to my store. Not sure where it came from, as I don't personally own this stamp. I am thinking one of my stamping friends must have stamped and embossed this and gave it to me.
This cute squirrel stamp came from Good Will, thought it would make a cute card. I have a blogging friend named Biz she has squirrel friends that visit her and husband Tony. So when I saw this stamp, I thought of her. Actually sent a card like this to them, because Tony has not been feeling well.
This last card was kind of an experiment. Kind of like an Iris Fold with the snowman being the center. I think it still needs something more, like maybe a few snowflakes....maybe the next card will have snow flakes on it...we'll see.

Well time to close this blog. Have to get dinner cooked for JP. Have a great week. For me, tomorrow will be a shopping day, Wednesday, home and Thursday, I am planning to make some cards at Betty's place. Missed last month because I was not feeling too well. Hopefully things will be better this time. I need a little inspiration and I usually get that when I go to Betty's.
Cheers - Louise

You know I love both the squirrel card AND the snowman card!

Hugs Louise!

p.s. I am loving this cooler weather too, but poor Tony has yet to take our down comforter off our bed!

Louise, I think that Gert of gert, tom and rusty would love your squirrel card. She usually post a picture of one every week or so. They get on her bird feeders. Hope you and yours are doing well. xoxo,Susie

Having a few special days planned with friends is one of those feel good things that I consider necessary. I love my Thursdays, as that's the day I go to Seniors to have lunch with friends and then a group of us stay afterwards to play Mexican train. I value those Thursdays and try not to schedule appointments or anything on those days. Most weeks, that's the only time I have to talk with someone besides Rick and other family members. Take care, and I hope you do get to go card crafting this week.

Hi Louise, I have been getting Anonymous comments from someone claiming to be you . . . is it you? If so what happen that your comments are coming up this way? I appreciate you so much, my friend and want to publish these if they are for a fact you. A girl just has to be careful when there are so many scams and virus out there. Please reply on this comment and I will check back tomorrow and read your reply. If it is not you, then I do not want to have anything to do with it . . . I’m sure you understand. I had to have my computer de-bugged once and it cost me $300.
I really like the 3 year old birthday card . . . so cute:)
Have a nice day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Thanks for getting back to me. I'm returning to my blog and publishing your comment. Just be sure and sign your name and I will watch for it, because I do delete anonymous comments, and i don't want to delete yours. I have had problems with Blogger, that did just fix themselves, so let's hope that will happen for you, my friend.
Have a great day!!!
Love you, sister.
Connie :)

Your cards are cute and I like the birthday card for kids the best. My computer won't let me comment on blogs sometimes either. If I go back later I can. But I have to remember to do that.
