stack 'o goodness...

Check this stack out...

It's something that I worked on last weekend...a total of 24 thank you cards...4 ended up being for my own personal use but the other 20 were for a custom order. I tried to keep "USPS friendly" in mind...

My girl is my marketing manager...don't tell her I said that, she'll want to be compensated for it..LOL. Anyways, my ex-husband's girlfriend was writing up a list for thank you's and my girl reminded her about the wonderful "Tsuruta Designs"...funny huh?!

So here's what I came up with:

First up is one that the boy helped me with...I stamped the sweet Poppy Stamps dog and SU sentiment and the boy colored in each pup differently:) I tell you, he is getting good with the copics!

Next is a clean & crisp thank you using metal from J's... which also satisfies today's 365 Cards Challenge...metal mania!

I know that the fabbie Lauren will love these Sassy Monsta's...it is my daughter's design...she did all the fussy cutting of the monsta's...I put it together...I had to highlight this particular monsta as my daughter is the black high top Converse wearing gal:)

One of my favorite A Muse images is that sweet bird...I 'filled in the bird bath' with my quickie glue pen and SU Dazzling Diamonds...

Who can resist the Hero Arts Frog??!!!

These ended up staying home with me...I meant for them to be the ex's gf's daughter but was told "she isn't a girlie girl"....but good grief, I used MM blooms, buttons and hello?! May Arts Ribbon {thanks elaine!!}. Everything works out for the best because I love these 'lil scraplings...

I'm thankful for my kidlets help...I do know something, I love to create to create, kwim? I'm not much of a custom order kind of gal...I was reminded of that as I was thinking of all the other stuff that I "should" be doing {DT work....Pub Calls....Laundry...LOL}. Oh well, I stamped and created...it is all good and therapeutic:)

Come on back tomorrow...it's my day on the 365 Cards blog and Pam 'almost' had me stumped...muwahahahaha....

  8. Oh girl I'm totally with you! I hate it too. Everyone always asks why I don't sell my cards more, and it's totally because I HATE mass producing. And I hate creating with the pressure to make a ton of something!

    These all look amazing! I need that dog stamp!

  9. oh WOW! what a crafty cornucopia of creativity! ♥

    yeah, i think the girl's gonna be needing a commission...'specially if she sells ya AND helps w/order fulfillment! (that is indeed one GORGEOUSLY cut out monsta...and the colored in puppies are rather fab, as well! clearly there IS an actual "craft gene"!)

    i don't find the felt flower scraplings too "girly"...but then...i LIKE girly...so maybe i wouldn't know. i do think puffy flowers, designer buttons and MA ribbon are slightly wasted on civillians tho...cool beans that YOU get to keep those!

    (ps: i do not recommend filling an ACTUAL birdbath with glitter glue...sure it *LOOKS* cool...but it realllllly ticks off the birds!) :)
