I {heart} You, Mom…

Good morning!  Well, it was a busy, sunny, super fun Sunday at our Community Garage Sale.  Sold ALL of the storage units I had in the old studio and a TON of paper/embellishments and about 22 cards (not to mention the 44 I sold at work last week).  So this stamper is happy!  I loved talking to the stampers that came by.  The sign on my sister’s driveway directing them to the new house worked well!  Today’s card was one of the Mother’s Day cards sold.  A young girl bought it for her mother along with 2 other cards (she has very good taste!).  LOL  I used this week’s My Favourite Things sketch and some washi tape for the 2 banners on the left.  Kind of a “loud” card, but the important message comes through :)  Before I leave you, I took a couple of pictures of my tables at the garage sale…
I put 4 paper pads together and bagged embellishments so no one could “pick and choose” and leave lots behind.  Buy a bag!  And it worked.  Only had 4 bags left at the end of the day and NO paper.  I also had stacks of 12 x 12 paper that sold in a minute to the same woman :)
Here are the boxes I sell my cards in.  Picked them up on clearance at Michaels a few years ago.  LOVE them! They fit the A2 cards perfectly :)  Hope your weekend went well too :)  Hugs!
