Recycled Cards and OWH

I packaged up my 'Any Time' cards for OWH and got them off in the mail on Tuesday, which was pretty much the last day to get them there before the contest closes on the tenth! I thought I'd made tons but when I started counting them there were only 36... It's not worth sending a priority envelope unless there are at least 50 cards in there, so I sat down and whipped up a dozen quick notecards using recycled images to fill up the envelope. The photo ones came from a Florida tourist brochure that had full-page colour photos on one side of the pages, and the art ones are made from a 'friendship' gift book I bought to use for card-making. The sentiments were all pre-stamped because John was building my new computer and I couldn't use the desk OR the dining room table - I sat on the bed surrounded by supplies and glued up the cards there!

Yea! Recycling is such a fun way to create cards and challenging too. Way to go!
