Greetings...


Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I have to tell you that I have been trying to sell some of my cards on ebay. I really don't know why I haven't shared sooner, probably because I didn't think anyone would care. I still don't think that you will particularly care, unless you are interested in doing it too. I haven't had a ton of luck with it yet but, I have to admit that I just love the thrill of the auction and I love more that I am not the one bidding. It appeals to me for some reason. Plus if a card sells I get money in my PayPal account that I can use to buy even more stamps that I couldn't possibly use in my lifetime. There is my confession for the week and can I tell you I feel positively free:) Another reason I chose to share this is because it seems for a card to do well on ebay it has to be really done up...lots of layers and detail. I have been working on some other things for the MFT release that I can't share until tomorrow so for now I will share this hedgie.
I stamped him twice and colored him with a combination of ink pads and watercolor pencils, lots of blending and shading. I cut out the flowers and ladybug, popped them on dimensionals and added crystal effects. The layers are stitched and the cool panel at the bottom is done with some fun stuff from K&Co. called paper ribbon that I have been hoarding (I guess I have more confessions to make. The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
I should be back for the next three days with some fun sneak peeks from My Favorite Things. Have a fabulous day! Thanks for stamping by!
Laura
