Elzybells Bethlehem card

Well . . . my first experience selling my creations wasn't a total bust, but I probably will not do this particular one again. I don't think it was the right venue . . . . either that or my stuff sucks. Picture tons of elementary school age children running amok, hyped to see Santa and visit the "Holiday Boutique" where they can purchase gifts for family members for about $1 - $3. Then, outside the "boutique" area, 12 vendors (of which I was 1) were allowed to set up tables with items geared more toward the parents. Problem was the children weren't too keen on allowing the parents much time to peruse the tables. I lost count of the number of moms who said "I'll be back . . . " Anyway, I'm so glad I didn't stress too much over it, and I'm relieved it is over. Now I can make my own Christmas cards.

This card uses the Elzybells "Bethlehem" stamp. Since I made this card, I ordered more Elzybells and got the "Little Town of Bethlehem" that I will use for future "Bethlehem" cards. Prismacolor pencils and Copics were used for coloring. Bashful Blue and Shimmery White cardstock from Stampin' UP! was used and some beautiful shimmery brown for the base. I wish you could see this irl.

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. Just another beautiful card!
    You KNOW the craft fair was just not the right venue. You KNOW your stuff doesn't's all absolutely gorgeous!


Thank you for taking time to comment . . . it feeds my mojo!
