These are couple of cards I made on Friday, based on sketches at Got Sketch 101. Cards are not my thing and they usually take me longer to make than a LO.

By the time I am done, I just do not want to give them away. Seems that it would not be appreciated enough.

But, since now I have a few made up and stored away, when I FINALLY do give them away, I will forget about all that and just let the person enjoy it. Do you ever feel that way???

Very cute cards! I especially love the second one - what a great use of the Sass strips.

I completely understand...I tend to not give handmade cards to people who aren't scrappers or card makers because I wonder if they'll like them or appreciate them. I guess we're the same in that regard, lol.

I would have a hard time giving cards away, if they were as beautiful as yours. :o)

The ones I do make I tend to be like Greta and only give them to people, who are into scrapbooking or other crafts. They tend to appeciate them more.

Okay, so do you need me to send you my address??!! JK!
Cards do take me a long time, but mine never turn out as pretty as yours! I wouldn't want to give those away either, but I hope the recipients are appreciative of them!

Okay I’m gonna come clean about the real reason why I don’t like and don’t make cards. Because scrapping product is too expensive and too much of my thought, time, effort and love would go into making a card and then to have the recipient just have an “okay” attitude and throw it out, would send me into a frenzy to dive into the waste can and retrieve my stuff. Ha. There you have it, I’m a loser baby, why don’t cha kill me. Ha, ha, ha.

But I will say that these cards are little slices of heaven and that I still have each and every card you have made for me. I appreciate, I appreciate, I really, really do.

OMG those are beautiful! I think people like getting handmade cards, but I know that they don't realize how much work that we put into them!

GREAT cards- I have been a slacker on GS101...went on a retreat this weekend and left all my sketches from the class- OOPS! I have a lot of catching up to do!
