Frida Kahlo Cards and Some Crafty Links!

It won't be long until the Dia De Los Muertos Craft Fair - October 23. Every week I make at least one set of Frida Kahlo themed cards. This week her image is jeweled and she is placed on a layer of gauzy fabric sewn to paper.

Those are absolutely gorgeous! Will you be selling any of those cards on Etsy?

Nevermind: I didn't realize you were based in Toronto (where I live) and that this Day of the Dead arts & crafts sale took place here. (Awesome!)

Hello Andree...I gave up selling my cards online. By the time I pack them up and protect them in cardboard...the shipping is so costly that it becomes a $20 card. So I only sell them "in person" at the Toronto One of A Kind show and now this new special event.
