B.U.S.Y....Can't I get a little vaca?

A vacation anywhere would be nice!  Or at least I am hoping for a big ole' dose of Calgon-Take-Me-Away! But so far it's a no go! I won't even start to tell you the list of things I have to do until next Thursday! Friday will be my first FREE day though! Can't wait till Friday! Yes I know it is Friday today but I am hanging on for NEXT Friday!

I really shouldn't even be posting here today but I had to stop in with some Craft Fair cards! Super simple Craft Fair cards! I got my assembly-line-card-making on today in a big way! :)

One of my sweet blog friends, Andrea told me the other day that she "mists" her cardstock with water before using the impression plates! LOOK at this huge difference! (Thanks for the tip Andrea!) Well, I can see it IRL but I hope the pictures do it justice....

These are just 2 of several sets I have for sale! I am going tonight to set up and then tomorrow is the big day!  These sets here are in the plastic boxes from PTI!  I have 5 cards and envelopes in one box!  I ATG'd my business card to the back!  I just have to add price tags! 

And another big thanks to Jamie for some great Craft Fair tips!  I have the notebooks I shared on my last post and some post-it note holders!  I will try to post some pics after tomorrow!
