Loving Family Fun Time!!!!
Happy Saturday morning Stampers, Friends, 'Family, and Bloggers!!!
Today is going to be a good day I get to play with new images I am so excited about and I have a Big Announcement on my blog today too!!! I will post my Announcement at 8:30am I am so super excited about it!!!!
So today is Saturday with is Etsy Inspired Challenge Time!!! Wooo Hooo I missed playing along last week and getting out to my team mates blogs as well.
About our Craft Fair on Friday (I know some people are wondering how it went)
This week was crazy busy my next door nieghbor and I were getting ready for a Craft Fair at the Hospital I used to work at as an RN and we had so so much stuff ready for the show we went last year but we had about 36 hours from the time we found out about it to the time we were setting up our booth and we worked non stop for most of those 36 hours LOL!!! This week we started so much earlier and we got really creative with our packaging and our Booth Decoration and we had so much ready for it, but alas it did not go well and we actually made quite a bit less than we did last year!!! Last year we only made $66 and this year it was less than $50 we hardly sold anything!!!!! Uuuggghhh We had made 15 Dozen Chocolate Covered Cherries, and 9 dozen Orange Cream Patties, and a bunch of the Peppermint Bark you see in Catalogs for $20 for a 3rd pound and we did not sell any Orange Creams we did not sell our first Chocolate covered cherries until 2pm and then we only sold a dozen total the ones that were packaged in 3's These Cherries are the best things in the world they are so scrumptious and nothing like store bought Chocolate Covered Cherries!!! Our booth was in a bad spot so that probably had somthing to do with it but it was just disappointing because we worked very hard on it this week and I was up till 3 am several nights and 4 am 2 night working because I just can not do it during the day anymore just to busy with all the running around for Preschool, and a very busy 2 year old under toe too!!!! LOL oh well we are not going back next year, it is sad because it has been fun to see all the hospital employee's and such around, but it is not worth all the work we put into it to keep doing it for such little sales!!!
So on to another Postive note I hate to stay in the negative for very long at all At least now we have all of our Christmas Cards made since the did not sell, and we have all of our Christmas Gifts for people like Teacher, Bus Drivers, Sunday School Teachers and classmates, special friends, and lots more done they are all getting Chocolate Covered Cherries, Peppermint Bark, and Orange Cream Patties and all of the pretty packaging is already done too!!!! So Christmas Gifts for Teachers ect... DONE!!!! Christmas Cards to go out to our huge list of people we send Christmas Cards/Christmas Letter/Pictures to DONE!!!! Yea that feels good even if it is not how I planned to use all this stuff we made!!!!! LOL!!!!
So Onto the Etsy Challenge this week

Here are some pictures of things in the Etsy Inspiration Shop we are working frm this week.
Here are the items I took my inspiration from:
And Here is my card I love this snowman Joni over at Inktegrity designed the snowman was actually designed to go on the Platter Bizzy the Mouse is carring out to the next room, but I enlarged t and made my Snowman Family. I colored them all with my copics, and punched a Hand Written Sentiment with the Curley Label SU! Punch.
I used my Mega Nestie for this card but I had to add a piece onto the end to make it long enough for the family!!! The Card Stock is Baja Breeze from SU!'s in colors last year, and the swirls are all from the CB embossing folder D' vine Swirls folder.
I hand drew the Bows on the Girl Snowmen to give them some gender LOL!!!
Copics used for kids above:
C2, C3, C5, C7, B21, B24, B26, V00, V04, V12, V17, BG10, BG49, BG72
Copics used on the Mom and Dad Snowmen:
RV02, RV32, RV34, RV 10, C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, B100, YR68
Well here is the deminsion view so you can kind of see them popped up a little. The Ribbon is the most yummy Teal and silver ribbon and on one side it is all silver and on the other side it is all this swirly pattern I love this ribbon it is so super think and pretty!!!1
Well I am off to get a good nights sleep because I have not had one in ages!!! I hope you enjoy the Card and play along with us in the Etsy Challenge this week just have your creations linked up on the Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog, by Noon next Friday PST.
