I sat down the last two nights and made a few cards. It felt good! I also found some paper to give away. I think I'll do that again once or twice this summer. It's nice to share the wealth and make some room. It also makes me feel like I can justify a paper purchase or two, like the great Graphic 45 I picked up recently. It was very masculine prints, something I needed!
The cards I'm going to share are made from a bunch of scraps that were on my desk. The scrap wrangler would have a fit upon viewing the calamity that is my craft room, so last night I set to work cutting any papers on my desk into A2 sizes. Scraps were sent out to pasture! That work last night led to a few extra cards. There's still a lot of work to be done on getting everything just so, but I'm up for the challenge.
The last card is my MWT (yellow and blue) card. The yellow is very pale, but it's there on the houndstooth cloud!
|General, Masculine card|
|Finally used the horse stamp I've had for ages!|
|I like this one better now that I've seen it photographed!|
|The barcode strips on papers sometimes have great designs to use. Except the red, this is all from the same sheet of paper.|
|I think I CASEd myself on this one, or pretty close to it.|
|All scraps but the layers, from three different collections! Also for the MWT - yellow and blue.|
The next challenge is due on July 4th. Have you sent your box? I only have a few days before I need to ship my box and it might not be full. I might have to sit this challenge out. We'll see- sometimes I surprise myself!
