Good morning blogger friends!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and start to a new week. We had a lovely weekend and good Monday, although, yesterday seemed the day for announcements:
1. Pope Benedict XVI - announced his resignation.
2. My boss announced she is leaving for new position in another state.
3. a co-worker and friend announced her retirement for later this year.
4. my Daddy announced that he is retiring in June of this year.
So far, 2013 seems to be the year of changes.
Saturday a friend of a friend contacted me to make her a card to give to her child. Of course I said yes! She continued on and asked what the cost would be.
Me: What? What cost?
Her: You know the cost of your cards, so I know can pay you?
Me (to myself): get paid to make a card...
Me (to her): ummm, I'll get back to you....
I know others charge and get paid in this business, to do something they love but to be honest, I never that what others would be interested in paying money for the stuff I make. Sure I know they like and appreciate the items I make and give, but to pay.
So, yes - I finally had a commissioned card and here is the result.
The letters are Graphic 45 Antique Typewriter Wood Stamp Set and the hearts are from My Creative Time's 100% Sweetness Stamp Set and Stitched Heart Layering Die.
The pattern paper is an American Crafts 6x6 paper pad found at Target.
Ribbon and twine are from my stash and the pennant is from Elle's Studio You and Me collection. To glue it all together, I used Glue Dot's Mini Glue Dots and Scotch Tape Glider.
I was so excited about this one but I believe it had more to do with the fact that someone (other than my friends/family) liked what I do enough to be willing to pay me for it.
Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
