Rainy Day Cards

This morning I made 5 'Hero Cards" for Operation Write Home.  The following, from their web site, explains a bit about OPW:


The 2 cards top and bottom on the right I posted earlier.  I used the same double sided paper pack for all the cards.  I didn't want to put away the scraps so you will notice that the pieces keep getting smaller.....
 and smaller.....

 and smaller.

  3. Wonderful cards. Thanks for sharing at Love To Scrap.

  4. What a fab bunch of cards. I love the dedication shown in using every last scrap of that paper, and the second one in particular is very effective with the scraps randomly put together, you must have nearly run out of glue. The last one is perfect for Father's Day.

    Thanks for sharing with us
