Something Fun for Friday

For Sock Summit, we've bandied about the idea of getting Moo cards to hand out to folks. I checked on it, but for whatever reason, making my photos work on them just doesn't happen, and I don't know how to fix it. Plus at $19.99 plus shipping for 100 it seemed a bit pricey.

So a couple of weeks ago, someone mentioned the free business cards (for the first 250) from Vista Print. All you pay is shipping, which is really pretty reasonable if you're not in a mad rush. Sock Summit being in August, I chose the slowest option. I felt like a complete idiot for not thinking of it myself, as that's where I get my business cards for Nana Sadie Rose!

Anyway, I went off to see what I could come up with for Knitnana, and this is what I found:


So...of course, I decided that the "best deal" was to add 250 to my cart. I really like the ivy shadows in the background on the purple...They arrived today, and I really love them!

Whatcha think?

I also finished two more of the mini-socks for Sock Summit:

The one on the sock blocker key chain is STR Scottish Highlands.

Hmm...I can't wear green, but the green and purple theme here is pretty evident, huh?

Ooh, I'm loving those business cards! I wondered whether I should get some for myself, or if I should do the environmentally (and research-ly) responsible thing and hand out my Uni cards...

Your cards are really lovely.

I do have Moo cards (10 of them, actually) that I got as a freebie when I upgraded to a paid Flickr account. Of course, they are pictures of my Meezers.

Nice job with the cards. I might have to go check that out as I just priced the paper at the local office supply store - ouch!(and that doesn't even factor the cost of ink!)

I love your cards..I also tried MOO..it was a huge moo..none of my pix would work and I hated the look..so I went your route also..mine have been shipped and I just took one of their designs..
It's a great deal..except there's been warnings of watching your credit card for double dipping..seems there was an option on check out..and some have received monthly billing for this..I used Paypal..hopefully that won't happen...
