A quick survey to help me decide how to post some of my older cards

I have 24 "older" cards from before I started posting everything that I have scanned and started image processing (straightening the scan, color correction, resizing) them. My idea was was to post them on my web site like all the other cards I've posted here with a full supply list and directions and sizes but reality is setting in that between work, buying new craft stuff, making new cards, etc it may be quite a while before I get them documented well enough to post them that way. It's much easier to do when all the supplies are still on the table.

Instead of waiting until they are completely documented, I have been thinking about just posting them in a new sort of as-is section were you can see them but the supply and directions will just say "TBD" until I get to them or someone specifically asks, which may be never.

So my question is this:

How many people find benefit in having all the directions? Are you mainly just looking at the pictures on the blog or the website? Does anyone benefit from the size measurements? How about the supply list? Is that helpful? More or less so than the directions?

Please post your thoughts as comments on this post and help me decide how much effort I should put into getting these older cards online.

More butterflies, A Bandaid and a Blingaid and a Father's Day Card

Just a quick post that there are 7 more cards on my website. The first three use the same butterfly stamp I talked about last time and the same mat stack. They are basically the same pattern, just different papers and sayings.

The next two bandaid cards I actually did a long time ago but am just publishing for the time. They are using done using the Cricut Expression and the Wild Cards cartridge.

Finally, there is my take one and take two of some of the Father's Day card cutouts on the cartridge. As always, click on any of the cards to go to the website and get better pictures and full directions.

Butterflies and Dragonflies

My new favorite stamp is the same one you needed to find for the Mother's day contest - this one. These are half the cards I have made so far with the set and my favorite little patterned stack and my favorite cardstock stack for the summer. It's not a complete list of what you need but these cards rely heavily on those three items if you are inspired to try to make something similar.

Hopefully it won't take so long to get the rest of the designs online and you'll be seeing them in a few days.

Click on any of the card to get full directions.

These two are new as well but use different stamp sets. Click on any of the cards to get full directions. Here are the ink and markers you need for butterfly one if you want to get into coloring with markers without spending a lot of money.

Hopefully more butterflies in a few days...
