A OWH Card Making Marathon for SMT

With MM back in AZ, it was questionable what I was going to do for my SMT post for Sassy Cheryls Show Me Thursday Challenge. All you have to do is submit a photo of what you've got going on in your life and enter it from the Sassy Cheryls Store.

For the past two months, my SMT posts have centered around MM and his activities, but this week I went on a tear making cards for Operation Write Home. I had decided I was going to do something to use up some of my stash of scraps and I started at the back with the scrap Halloween Paper.  So yesterday I headed out to TM and got started my card making marathon. These are the cards that I made with the Halloween Scraps.

I also had these 6 cards finished except for the small butterflies, so yesterday I used my Memory Box Butterfly die and finished them up.

When I went looking for some embellishments for Halloween, I found some gold stars, so I used them with an extra card base that I had left over from my Sassy Cheryl challenge cards for this card.

Today I got rained out on my early morning walk, so headed out to TM earlier than usual. This Halloween card was made using  my Silhouette Cameo and it's print and cut features to create this Halloween card. The papers are from the Halloween Kit from Shery K Designs.

Once I had worked through the Halloween scrap stash, I headed into the birthday paper scraps. These cards are what I put together using them.

This is a picture of all the cards I've finished in the last two days, and the final picture is my table and work space when I left this afternoon. Cheryl, you should be impressed as I've cleaned up after myself the last two days.

Thanks for stopping by. Tomorrow I'm headed out to help my niece whose moving into their new home today.
