A funny thing happened while making cards.. used up 2 6 x 6 paper pads!! Yeah!!

Yesterday while shopping in Springfield, I stopped by a local scrapbook store that I had a $5.00 rewards for, so I bought a new set of "hello" dies by Memory Box.    Last night I got started on some cards and I made a handful of cards after cutting up an entire paper pad. I figured I'd finish up the cards today.

This morning my husband and I took the kids to Hardee's for some biscuits & gravy.. ohhh yummy!  and when I got home I went about finishing up the cards.    I had nearly all the pieces I cut from the paper pad used up when I realized I had a few of the 2" x 5 1/4" pieces left.  I dug through my paper pads to find another of the same pads and grabbed what I thought was the same...  same color scheme, but a totally different pad.. oops!    so I went ahead and cut it all up and spent most of the day and night finishing up all these cards.

I made an assortment of Hello, Thank You and Miss You cards.   These were a lot of fun to make.  I ended up with 42 cards in all.


card stock:  Kraft, SU Midnight Muse, White
pattern paper: MME Nutmeg and MME Blue Floral
stamps:  Hero Arts You're So Kind (Thank You), Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler (Miss You)
ink:  MFT Black Hybrid and SU Midnight Muse
accessories:  Scor-Pal, Memory Box Oh Hello Again dies, SU/EK Success Circle Punches, Hole Punch/Paper Piercer, SU Blue Brads, HL Mini Brads, SU Dog Tag Punch and Foam Tape

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

Great output! Will you send these all in at once? Do you consider them multiples of the same? Reason I'm asking is that I thought we had to reduce the amount of multiples of the same card we send to OWH. I like to make multiples, so it's been hard for me to reduce the amount I make. Thanks for sharing your cards. I always enjoy seeing what you create. From Laura P
