Easter card FB challenge for OWH
Sandy posted a challenge today for us to make Easter cards. I had already made some today, but they're scheduled to post later this week. (Yes, I've been so productive of late that I've been pre-scheduling some posts for the work week.) I decided to dig in my stash and do something undeniably spring/Easter themed.
Due to the call for more cards for OWH, I have decided to go back to making multiples. I had completely cut them out following the call for slightly less cards. I figured if the shippers were going to be sending less boxes, they wouldn't want to have to work harder to split designs up. Now that OWH actually has more contacts than before, we can go back to our normal levels of making cards. For me, that means making some multiples when I have the time and the supplies.
I started with this ribbon. I've had it three years or more and I used the entire length of it tonight. I made six identical cards, which also means I used up the entire sheet of patterned paper. Doesn't that make you feel good, when you can use something up? I know it makes me super happy! The stamps are from a very old SU set "Miracle of Spring" that I picked up on ebay a few months ago. It has a row of tulips, "Happy Easter," "Thinking of You," and some butterflies in addition to the two stamps shown.
This card used Sketch #92, so that's one more I can cross off my list.
Cards shipped to OWH in 2012: none thus far, but my box is filling up nicely!
