Doily Dress Place Cards

After seeing my Doily Dress Card in a previous blog post, I was contacted and asked if I could be hired to do place cards for a bridal shower.  My initial reaction was to decline the request inasmuch as I'd never sold any of my paper crafts...I do them for fun.  But...I thought about it, and I had some extra time, so I said what the heck.  So, "Aunt Donna The Bomb" (inside joke) provided me with the bridal party colors and a basic description of what she wanted. 

The original sample I made was a normal-sized A2 card. 

She then asked if I could make the cards a little smaller, so I modified the dress (folded the doily tighter) and cut down the card.

 Long story short, everything turned out great, and I had my first (and only, so far) satisfied customer :)

Big Vanilla Fall Shoe Box Swap

What a fun day!  The Meade girls gathered at the "Big Vanilla" (I just love the name) in Pasadena, Maryland, for our Fall Shoe Box Swap (thank you Paula for setting it all up for us!).  So glad Mary could stop by then join us for a late lunch at Two Rivers.  Below are the terrific cards we all made:
