Dollar find - alter cards

While digging through the dollar bin, I had a brain storm. There are always package of (8 to 10) thank you notes, or just note cards with simple designs. Well I brought 2 packages of ones that said "Thank You". Brought them home and decided to use them as bases for my own cards. I went into the garage and found some sandpaper and a sandpaper block and went to town on sanding the glossy finish off the front of the cards, and then I decorated them like if they were blank bases. So for $1.00 I was able to make 8 cards that had envelopes. Since I am challenging myself this year to make 30 cards for the soldiers and have sent out to some of my scrapping friends challenging them to make 4 cards each. The 1st of November we will be sending them to a dear friend's son that is stationed in Iraq, for himself and for him to share with the other men and women in his troop. I am also going to try and make at least 5 to 10 if I can each month of "all occasssion" cards for

National Scrapbook Day

Lately I have been into watercoloring images for my cards. What did you do for National Scrapbook day. Well I was invitied to Truman Middle School with some of scrapping friends. Julie, Debbie and Sandra work at the school. Julie is the librian and we were able to scrap in the school library from 11:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. It was Debbie, Julie, Sandra, Linda, Peggy, Donna, Pam and my self. Julie and Debbie were making the cutest little books. Debbie was making hers for her students that was going to 8th grade prom. Julie was making her for Christmas gifts I think. Linda was making a cute little scrapbook for the 4-H leader that was retiring, she was making a page for each of the students that was under the leadership of the leader. I was just coloring in some images.
