A natural extension of scrapbooking is cardmaking. I've recently been making more and more of my cards rather than buying them. The bonus of cards is that they make up so quickly, its a form of immediate gratification! And a hint I read in one of my scrapbook magazines, is to make cards from your scraps as you create your scrapbooking pages. I've tried it and it really helps to use up those scraps you keep meaning to go back to but never do!
Here's a sampling of cards I've made recently. Some from scraps and some from a kit. I've also included three cards that my Mom hand-painted.
