I'm in the process of killing a bunch of kits right now and this was the last of a kit. The minimalist in me kicked in and 'just got the page done' using what was left.
The rest of the kit which consisted of 3 - 12 x12 sheets of paper and a pile of scraps were made into cards for OWH (Operation Write Home). I'm a horrible card maker. I do not work in that size so most of my cards are not even worthy of showing here. I do it for the soldiers and to use up product. I send decent cards - don't worry. Its just that *I* don't like them. They're very simple. A stamped sentiment with a piece of string, maybe an embellishment or two and then some patterned paper. Nothing special - but it gets the job done.
I'm also very bad about sending cards 'in season' for these poor people. The problem is, I never have enough to send them since I rarely craft these days. So when I do have a full box, there is usually a lot of Birthday and Love cards mixed in with some random holiday ones that are usually late. For example, the box I mailed last week had....... 4th of July cards in it. Whoops! Well, I'm early for next year right?
Anyway, here is the simple layout.
Just received some new colors of Burlap String to work with. I love this stuff!
