Midweek Throwdown: Cards to Send Home to Children

My friend Sharon had this adorable girly-girl snail stamp. I stamped several of them on a new (less expensive) paper, hoping the Copics would work on the paper, but they "run." So I ran as well to my box of 20 for $5 AC Moore markers and voila! I'm not overly impressed with these markers by any means but they are okay for mass producing cards and some scrapbook borders etc...

Sketch Challenge 25: Scraps Time

Isn't this week's sketch perfect for using up scraps? Thanks, Darla!

Inspiration to cut a ton of squares for now (and later) and making some quick cards, most of which I tried to make relatively "gender neutral."

Mission Accomplished! I Resolve to Say "Hello" to the Trash Can More Often...

Okay, so I only got 56 cards done Friday night at the crop but thanks to a great weekly challenge sketch on Operation Write Home on Sunday that is perfect for using up scraps, got 12 cards using that sketch done yesterday and another 16 using still more scraps after which I packed up stickers and stuff I've been lugging around and lots of bigger scraps to send to my great-nieces Reagan and Logan. Little girls love stickers and it's so hot at Hilton Head that I'm sure their mom will love having something new to amuse them with in the house!

I hereby resolve not to keep every scrap that might be big enough to punch something.. it's time for Christmas cards, Copic coloring and "fun stuff"...... like Monday cleaning?
