Friday Sketchers #120

Morning everyone. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I am hoping that I have still sleeping in my hotel room when you read this. Crossing my fingers that I had an awesome night out with the girls. Anyway.........I made this card with the sketch from Friday Sketchers. It has been a while since I have created a card with a Sweet Pea Stamp so here she is.

Got a question for you all. What do you all do with your cards that you don't specifically make for someone....???? I have a bucket load of cards sitting here collecting dust and I have also tried to sell via a Facebook page but noone seems to be interested. Everyone says what lovely, beautiful, stunning cards they are but not willing to buy them for $3 each - What the.....!!!!!!! Come on $3 for a handmade card - one of a kind. Hmmmm let me know please. TIA.

Ya I know ahat you mean I have a heap of cards too, took some in to work but only sold 6 or 7 and couple went missing so gave u on that idea, no luck on facebook or e-bay either! Have thought about taking them to the markets, might look in to that, It is a shame to see them sitting in a cupboard!

Ohhh Love those colors together tracey!

I use what I can for birthdays and kids friends birthdays and then I sell what is left to friends @ $5 a card. There are always some left but I tend to make a little bit of money on them!

I'm short on time and resources for being creative at the moment but always keep an eye out for handmade cards at the markets. If you don't have time to sell them yourself, you may be able to combine them with another stallholder's items. Love your work!
