Cards out the WAZOO! LOL!

Wazoo caught your attention didn't it? LOL!

I have not sold but a card or two on eBay for a couple of months.I took a little Summer break.
I thought I would pull the cards out of my boxes, lay them out on the pool table and pick a couple to list this week. WoW...was I surprised at how many I had in my collection! My Design Teams have really kept my mojo going! I had to blur the 8 on the bottom because they are "Sneak Peeks" for "Clear Dollar Stamps". No one can see them until this weekend! Check back Friday through Monday and I will share 2 a day. You are going to LOVE the new releases!

I listed one card tonight and will add another tomorrow night. I plan on keeping some on eBay at all times again like I used to. I think I have enough to keep 'em on for awhile! LOL!
BTW...I have made many more that have gone to friends and family!
It takes me about 4-5 hours per card and I have been doing about 4 or 5 a week.
I would love to hear what you all do with your cards, how much time you spend on each and how many you average a week.
Leave a comment below and tell us about it!

Hi, True.
Oh, for a novice crafter like me it seems to take forever to make a card but when it's done, oh, the feeling of accomplishment is really over the top. It takes me anywhere from one hour to a few days to make a card. With the cards I make I usually use them to give to friends and family once I have uploaded them on my blog. Some I keep as a reference especially the simpler ones.

Mahalo (thanks) for sharing your beautiful work.

Hi True, wow, my heart went into overdrive looking at allll those beautiful cards side by side.They are all so beautiful!! I make approximately 10-20 cards a week; I sell my cards at our local craft consignment shop as well I provide the cards for my church for sending out to those who have had surgery, a baby, a death in the family, etc. I have also made a lot of cards for our local Animal shelter and I try to keep some for my personal stash!

What a sight! All those yummy cards all lined up! You are just soooooooo creative. I spend anywhere from 2-4 hours making a card. Most of them I use for personal use but I do sell some to friends and I supply my husbands office. Can't wait to see what you have been doing for Clear Dollar Stamps ! :o) Tracy

Oh, what a tease, True, just putting one of them on eBay :)

Hi True!

What beautiful cards (my fav is that fishbowl card...way cute!!)

How long it takes to make a card...depends on who I am making it for and whether or not they will keep it or (sadly) toss it away.

Hey True, these cards are so beautifully done! Wow girl. I esp love the frog (with his reflection) and the fish bowl. Just love your creations. TFS I also spend around 5 hours avg per card and make about 3-5 cards per week. I have lupus, so my energy usually runs out before my creativity does. hee. Enjoy your day.

Thank you for letting us view your stash of cards.

Most of my cards are given away as gifts. I should mail more cards out to people.
It takes me hours to make a card. Sometimes, I stamp and color images and they sit for days until I decide how to use them for a card.

One day,I used all the scrap DP and CS and made different cards that only needed an image, ribbon and bling.

Wow what a huge stash! I am so glad to see how long it takes people to make their cards. I've been wondering that for some time. It also takes me anywhere from 2-5 hrs to make a card, depending on how much detail I put into it. I worked on 1 last night for close to 3 hrs and it's still not quite finished.
