Hello everyone, today I am bringing you 10 cards that came out of my Odds and Ends drawer.
This is the drawer that I have put cutoffs of various sizes over the years. When I shifted my craft space to a bigger area I remembered this drawer and instead of dumping its contents I decided to start making cards out of its contents. Otherwise I was going to dump the contents in the bin.
To make things a little easier on myself I decided to use card sketches to make this set. Below I am going to share both the sketch and card together. I have worked out the sketches for metric measurements instead of imperial because that is the measurements that we use in Australia.
My Favorite Things Sketch #395 from July 2018

Both of these cards started with their smallest element. I thought the Dog and the Life parts of other pages were too cute not to make them a main element on a card.

Thanks for sticking with this post if you made it this far. It was so good to make some cards from stuff that I had just kept for some reason. And to make so many from the same sort of paper – had a lot of fun! And before you go I would love to leave you with this final thought:
This is definitely me! I seem to have been this way all of my life. I used to train in the rain when I was younger. I am so more active on days of rainy weather. But I do like to see the sun after a while – but hate the steamy weather that can follow rain!!
Have a Happy Crafty Rainy Kind of Day,
