More Winterey Thank-Yous

I don't know if you remember these cards I made a couple of weeks ago for my sis; I only made four of them because I was in a hurry.

I made 30 more over the past couple of weeks.  These were particularly challenging, because the paper for them came from a packet I got at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago, and every single sheet in the packet was a different pattern.  Some went together really nicely, I felt, but others.....eh.....  I'm extremely picky about things matching, so it was tough for me to layer patterns together.  I would sit and cut out a piece and hold it against another piece and say, "Do these go together?  I don't know...."  It was probably two hours of me dithering on which colors and patterns to put together.

Anyways, I really love light blue and brown together, so these are really delightful to me.
There are only maybe three of each of the options shown here, since it was just 8 1/2" X 11" paper I was working with.
I prooooomise to put them on my etsy soon.  I desperately need to update my etsy; I just need a certain two-year-old to be taking his nap before I dare work on it.  :)  I think it may have expired while I was recovering on my couch for two months...  Gotta check on it.  But really, I've had one sale on my etsy since I started it.  The rest is just local friends and family that buy them.  So I'm not sure what to do about my etsy...  Things to ponder.
Which one is your fave?  I'd say the one with all blue (the first one) is my fave.  It just...calls my name.

I absolutely love these!! The ones I bought from you are my faves, definietly! I LOVE the brown and blue together! Good luck with your etsy shop! You really do need more time to spend working up a clientele. I understand what you mean. I've had about 4 sales in the last year and a half and half of the sales are from family:)
