Lots of cards little time!

Well I've had several people ask me how I make so many cards so quick?  The following four cards I made in minutes and I usually make about 6 of each to send to 'OWH'.   Yesterday I put 105 cards in the mail to OWH, I've been working on them for a month.  This first one is so simple I used my Scor-pal to score my card at half inch increments then I added the red SU Lattice die cut gold dots and the salutation.
My second card is SU white card stock, scored at half inch increments then I used scraps from the SU Lattice.  I always said not to throw scraps away well I made the flower and squares and the salutation from those scraps.
Yep you guessed it scraps in 3/4 in circles and I scored the white SU card stock at one inch circles.  My salutation is 'Just Checkin In!'  I truly believe you don't have to have much to make cards.  Some people think its so expensive and it is if your like me and you have to have it all
Last card and its made with SU Rose Red card stock and scraps of paper from my scrap bin.  I got these chipboard pieces from Michael's and slapped them on.  Within an hour I made five cards of each for a total of twenty cards for 'Operation Write Home'.  Now onto the Blog Candy.

I'm amazed that these cards only took you minutes! I love that you used your scor-pal to add texture to your background. Great work =)

I think that once you get into a rhythm it's not so hard to do them quickly

I love the paper that looks like denim. That card is great with all the primary colors.
