Nope, I haven’t run out of cardstock…

I have been doing some tidying up this summer and decide to bite the bullet with our stationary box that was full of writing paper and cards. Well, if I’m sending a letter these days, I tend to make my own cards – and some of the materials in this box were so old they were bought from John Menzies !! – so I put a lot in a packet and gave them to my mum ( who wasn’t that grateful !!!) One thing I did keep was some airmail envelopes, because I was inspired to make a set of these…

This was super simple – stamp, colour and emboss. Rattled the lot out in half an hour, and I am going to enter them into the A Passion for Papertrey challenge. Yeah, I seem to be churning cards out just now, and there’s a very good reason for that… school starts on Monday and I know my crafting time will become quite limited to printing and laminating – be still my heart !

    Like both the simplicity and the recycling aspect of this. Have looked through the stash you left and will find it useful but I prefer your cards for those dear to me.
