It’s true, I haven’t crafted hardly at all lately. What can I say? Working part time has been tough on my crafting time. Every January I go to prepare birthday cards for the rash of January/February birthdays in our family and realize I’m pretty much out. NOT this year. I took sketch 243 from Operation Write Home and killed a 6×6 (My Mind’s Eye Breeze). I loved the pretty yellow/gray/black/white of these; and the neutrals made it really easy to use coordinating neutral cardstock to tie them together. These sketch cards are the vertical ones with the ribbon accents.
As you can see, my daughters were also working on some cards. Those little reindeer are for holiday thank you notes – we are working ahead this year! 🙂 The scraps at the top are all that is left of the 6×6, and I think I started with a full pad. I made 27 cards, and yes, a lot of them are fairly similar. They are all birthday/best wishes except two love cards. I will chose a handful to send to OWH and keep the rest for my own personal stash.
The other sketch I used is Operation Write Home 236 – with a few liberties. Those are the cards on the left side of the pile (the horizontal ones). I also used some new to me sentiment stamps from Avery Elle via Blitsy, who was running a 50% off warehouse sale this week. if there is anything left… you should look! I found a few things, including some clay for my daughters for their stockings. 🙂
