Gearing up for a CQ show and sale!

 My small CQ group here is having a show and sale at the bookstore where I work! We'll be showing some items that we've made and can't part with, and making a few goodies to sell, including greeting cards, ornaments, and wall hangings.
These gold ones are some of the Christmas cards I've done. I was given this box of photo-insert Hallmark Christmas cards by Leslie E. Thank you, Leslie! They are "vintage", I would say, as they had a price on the box of $5.25 for 25 cards and envelopes. The worked just perfectly with little 2" square blocks inserted instead of a photo


 The next ones are either counted cross stitch kit cards or some that I ordered from the internet (wish I could remember where!).

 And some more of the Christmas card ones. The gold foil is really lovely in person! It makes any little bit of gold I used in the block just sparkle.

This show will be happening on November 23rd, here in Grand Junction! Join us if you can!

Your cards are lovely and I am sure they will sell well.

I make cards too, but I am having trouble sourcing the cards with the cutouts. From your comment, I am unsure whether you can't remember where you got the cards or the cross-stitch inserts! If you know where I can get some cards, please let me know. I live in Australia so I am not going to be in competition with you, LOL.
