2017 looks like it will be a great year. I’m feeling good and getting motivated making bunches of new cards. Back in October I was able to help crew the 2016 Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and my husband Larry walked it. This year we will both do it again. It’s a great organization and an amazing experience. Read about my husband’s experience here.
This year I am focused on box sets of the most popular card types. Thank Yous, Friendship, Christmas and maybe a few Valentines. I’ll also be making plenty of Birthday Cards, Thanksgiving and my favorite, Halloween.
Looking for a custom card? Drop me a note here on the contact page.
For all of 2017, all box sets sold directly will benefit the Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and our team, Save the Peaches. We will donate 1/2 of the sale price to the team for every set sold. A special order page will be setup shortly. This donation applies to direct sales of box set cards only. Any sales through third party sellers are not part of this special offer.
It’s official, I’m entered in the Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer and man do I need your help. My major fundraising project is of course my cards. If you want to help this amazing organization think about ordering a few of my cards. Any cards ordered now through Oct 15th I’ll donate 1/2 the price to the Atlanta 2 Day Walk for Breast Cancer.
Look trough the site, almost everything is available for sale (except a few of the one off special order cards pictured here). Below are several special cards made just to help supporrt my fundraisisng efforts for this amazing organization and cause. Check out their web site linked above for all the info on them.
I need to raise at least $1000 for my team so lets get hopping and order those cards today.
Almost all the cards you see are $5.00 each. You can order here and I’ll deliver them at the monthly training walks or if you’re out of the Atlanta area we can mail them for a small postage fee.
If you’d like to just donate to help me reach my goal go here to my donation page and be generous.
Thanks you all for your support.
PS: My husband talked me into participating. he’s also walking and so is Scarlett
Busy week ahead and no rest for this card making queen! I’m getting some last minute cards made for the Cumming First Baptist Church Fall Festival and Craft Fair this Saturday. I’m putting together a few Christmas Cards with my new “Reason for the Season” Stamp set from Stampin Up. The Poinsettia punch makes the flower making super easy.
I did finish a few general cards yesterday as well.
Here are some Christmas Cards I’ll have at the Craft Fair.Stop by and pick up some for all your extra special friends and family.
I didn’t get into the work room this week so the work bench is empty. I did get my pain infusion therapy this week. They increased my dosage and I do feel a whole lot better. I did get to go to a card making class Thursday night it was fun I think. Here’s a picture of the card I made.
I don’t even remember making this card but it sure is pretty. Thanks to my best friend Rita for taking me and taking care of me while we were there. BTW: Rita, you’re going to have to show me how to make this card again. Thursday night is real foggy.
I got all my little boo bags filled up for all the little ghosts and goblins for Halloween here’s some pictures.
That’s all for this week. I am feeling a lot better now that I got the infusion so look for great things this coming week from the Card Doc’s workbench.
One more trip to the doctor before the big July 4th show. I don’t talk (or type) much about it but pain is a bitch! I’ve had so much the past few years that this new therapy has been a huge turn around for me. I still have pain but it’s not a constant gnawing 8-10 level pain like it was just last year. Since the fibromyalgia therapy started the middle of last year I’ve actually enjoyed many days with a level 3 pain. This coming week I’m going in for a simple epidural to target the actual physical pain in my hips and lower back. These treatments have also been a big help and were only possible because of the fibromyalgia therapy which got rid of all the never pain long enough for the doctors (and me) to find the physical pain underneath it all.
We got our space assignment letter Wednesday. We will be in space 45-A (whatever that means) The craft show runs all day right up till dark. Please stop by and say hi. Let me know you saw this on CardDoc.net and I’ll give you a free card with every 4 you buy. (everybody else has to buy 5 to get the freebie)
Enough of my rambling, the bottom line is hopefully I’ll be able to handle the long long day in Marietta for the Fourth of July show. Here are all the cards and gift card holders, lots of gift card holders, I’ve made this past week. I’m so worried, anxious and excited about this first show. I’ve made so many cards and I hope it’s enough.
See you in Marietta!!
I love cupcakes!!
Just for the Marietta July 4th Crafts fair I’ll have a very limited number of the step-accordion cards pictured below. There are just a very few of each, Birthday, Thank You and Get Well. These cards are so unique and special, they are sure to please the lucky recipient.
Each card is different. They are bright fun cards perfect for summer time giving and brightening up anyone’s day.
It’s been a busy week here at the Card Doc. We’re getting ready for the Marietta Craft Fair the 4th of July in Marietta Ga. and I’ve been making cards like a mad woman this Memorial Day weekend. My studio photographer dug out the 4th of July decorations and had fun with the newest batch of cards. They are all bright and festive cards with a definite summer flair to them. If you’d like to purchase any of our hand made cards contact us directly, leave a message or comment or visit our face book page. Better yet stop by and see us at the Marietta Craft Fair at the Square in Marietta on the 4th of July.
This card goes great with the gift bag below.
Something for that special friend you’ve known all your life.
It’s a tag and a card in one extra heavy Kraft envelope with a tie-on string. Great for those hard to wrap gifts for mom or dad.
Nothing says fun in the sun quite like flying a kite. Great card for that special summer time birthday.
That’s it for now. These increase the inventory about 50 cards. I can’t, won’t and don’t, just make one. :-). there are 5-10 of each available. See you in Marietta July 4th.
