Shameless Plug

I will admit it, this is a shameless plug for myself. You see, I am trying to start a business creating hand-stamped cards, invitations, announcement, etc. I recently made a couple of cards that I'm particularly proud of and want to share here with my loyal reading audience (LOL).

This is a card that I made for my good friend Daniella to thank her for inviting us over for dinner and for all the things that she does for us and our boys. She loves giraffes, so when I got this set, I just knew I had to create a card with it for her.

This card was made for a neighbor's 40th birthday party. It is a gate-fold card (the center opens up to reveal the inside).

Finally we have a "punny" card that I made for my dad, the King of the Pun, for his retirement. It's kind of corny, but I got really inspired one night and just had to create this card. The pieces on the front of the card are woven together, and then stamped with a watermark ink to give the illusion of fish swimming in the background. I think I managed to use all of the stamps in this set on this one card!

I hope you enjoyed your little tour of my creative mind. I'll occassionally put in other shameless plugs for myself - hope you don't mind.

These are wonderful cards, Cindy. I'm a stamper, too, though don't seem to be actually finding the time much these days. Looks like you are - hope your business does well. It's a great idea.
