Scrap Wrangling

My sister-in-law asked if I could make her some thank you cards.  She is a golfer and has several sponsors that she'd like to thank.  I love any excuse to make cards, so I was all about that.  After I found a sketch, I examined my scrap box.  (All of my scraps are stored in a single-yes, SINGLE-shoebox.)  I've been trying to get the scraps contained for a while.  Going off of OWH's scrap-wrangling and 6x6 tutorials, I set out to use up the scraps.

Here's the thank you cards (I made 2-3 of each):

Then I went a bit overboard on the scraps...


I just mailed a box of cards to OWH 2 weeks ago, but it looks like I'm about ready to mail another one.

This one's my favorite.  Perfect for a guy (or maybe I'll give it to my sis-in-law as well).

This one's my hubby's favorite.  He insisted that I feature it on here.  The googly eyes and silly sentiment crack him up.

And lastly, because I loved this week's OWH sketch: 

She is colored with water-based markers and a blending pen.  That's my 1st try at the blender and I think it's alright.  I'd love any tips if you've used blending pens before.

Thanks for visiting today!

  4. Terrific use of the sketch to spark your creativity - and good for you for using up so many scraps! I love the masculine "thank you" card too! Thanks, and thanks for inspiring me to a goal of 2 cards a week for OWH. I'm on vacation this week so I may get a couple of weeks ahead!

  5. only a shoebox!!! Wow I bow to you. I am so impressed with your cards you are simply awesome. Thank you for sharing.

  6. These are great! I love your fav - but I have to agree with Hubby that googly eyes is way cute. I wouldn't have thought to put two different size eyes on the beasty. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. What a wonderful collection of cards, and especially the one chosen for this week's sketch inspiration! Congrats and keep up the great work for OWH!

  8. Wow, such a wonderful collection. I just love your sketch for this week's OWH challenge. Thanks for the inspiration!
