I started cleaning today...

...and had to use up some scraps, so I made some cards too!

This paper was another cheap back at Tuesday Morning with 25 identical sheets for $1.99. You can see that the blue lines are glossy. I knew I needed a car stamp to go with it but I actually don't have one. I think I must have well over 2000 stamps now (perhaps I'll count soon), so I'm surprised by this hole in my collection. My new scooter was a decent substitute. A little texting lingo let me use up some stickers on a sheet with no more of the letters e, t, a, and a few other crucial ones. I used more of the grosgrain ribbon from the towels I bought at Target. Scrappy indeed!

I've really gotten into the quilted background idea recently. I made my mom's Mother's Day card with this technique as well as a love card for OWH. This birthday one would have been great last month for the funny card theme on the OWH FB page. The inside says "mine is unlisted." I love the trim on this little guy.

Another patchwork background. My new staple design. Sandy gave me the idea for cutting the sentiment as a flag on the last episode of OWHtv. I really like it.

The OWH Father's Day deadline is approaching quickly...May 21st. That's just two weeks from today. I want to have my box full by then. It might happen, but I might have to bump down to a medium flat rate box instead of the large that I wanted to send. I thought this was a perfect sentiment for OWH Father's Day cards. Since our heroes are sending them home, it'll be nice for them to tell their dads how much they look up to them. I made tons of these shirts a few weeks back, so there might be a few dozen of these cards in my box.
