I've moved on from halloween themed cards to fall/autumn cards. It's always been hard for me to make multiples of the same card. As a compromise, I stamped one image a bunch of times and just started doing whatever came to mind. Since I'm trying to use up scraps, I can't really list products used, other than to say that the main image is from Stampin' Up.

Last week I finally got motivated to make some cards, after not being near my craft room for ages.  Halloween is one of my favorite card-making holidays, and realizing that the OWH (Operation Write Home) deadline for halloween cards is August 31st, I got busy.  I challenged myself to see how many cards I could make to get in the mail to OWH.  I've always worked best with a deadline looming!  Here are some of the ones I made:

Cardstock: Dark Gray scrap (for bat); white card base

Stamps: Bat from Inkadinkadoo "Mindscape Halloween" collection; Sentiment from Prickley Pear "Scary Cat" set

Stamps: Jar and frog from "All Wrapped Up" set by Stampin' Up; Arsenic Label by Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Collection
Sentiment Sticker: "All My Rowdy Friends" collection by Reminisce
Other: Twine (source unknown); googlie eye; stickles

I've been making cards for years, and had quite an accumulation, so I decided to donate them to a worthy cause.  After doing some research, I chose Operation Write Home, which provides handmade cards to members of our military forces so that they can stay in touch with their loved ones back home.  The first box I sent contained about 250 cards!  I'm going to try to continue to send them cards, but I'm a very slow stamper, so we'll see how that goes!
