Scrap Wrangler - Part 1

Wow, when I first saw THIS VLOG by Sandy Allnock, president of Operation Write Home, I was inspired and ready to organize my scraps of patterned paper.  If you click HERE, you can find the tutorial with ideas on how to use your scraps on cards.  I even bought a cool box to store them in once they were wrangled.  That was back in April 2012, but alas, I didn't get around to it until December 2012!  Why in December?  Well, I finally got another kick in the pants when Sandy made some cards using her already wrangled scraps and showed them on THIS EPISODE of OWHtv.  So, I finally did it - WOOHOO for me!

Thanks to Sandy (and that final kick in the pants I needed) today and Wednesday, I will share 13 cards I made in one evening (I don't know about you, but I can't usually make that many cards in one evening if I start from scratch on each one!) using scraps from a 6x6 pad, some SU! Tangerine Tango and Close to Cocoa cardstock, and a few stamps. punches and bling.

Here are the first six cards.  You'll have to come back on Wednesday to see the rest and to find out which was my favorite!
