Refilling my card stash

I haven't made a card for ages and I had none left in my 'whoops-it's-her-birthday-TODAY' stash of cards. I'm not sure why. I've been scrapping and Project Lifing but haven't had the inspiration for cards.  Maybe because I don't know many people with birthdays in the first quarter of the year.
On Saturday, however, along with many other crafters in the UK I expect, I sat down to create a couple of Mothers Day cards. One I can show here, the other I can't. 
I also needed an anniversary card for Thursday, but I haven't finished that yet and I live in hope that he might actually visit this blog one day so I won't show it yet either.

Anyway, the point is that I found these Simple Stories Polaroid cards which have been sitting in my scrap box for about a year. I grabbed a handful of other embellishments which were lurking around and came up with half a dozen cards to replenish my stash. In all it took me about an hour and cost me next to nothing. I don't why I hadn't considered them as card toppers before.

I remember now - that's why I enjoy card making.

I know - the price of cards is crazy. You have saves quite a bit with this lovely little lot

You've got a lovely selection now....the poloroid cards work brilliantly.

I don't think I have ever made 6 cards in one sitting! That is quite an accomplishment and a great way to work on your stash ;)
