Unloved Items Put To Good Use

Good Friday morning everyone.  I hope you are all experiencing a great day so far.  Last night  I went looking for one particular item and didn't find it but I found several other items that haven't seen any love for a while.   Feeling bad for these items, I decided to make a couple of cards for my next OWH box.
This first card was made with a Rub-On  I haven't used a rub-on in maybe 5 years so it was  time to try it again.
On this card I used this brown and black paper that I think I've had for maybe 8 or 9 years.  I ended up happy with the outcome of this masculine card, so I think you'll be seeing more of this paper from me in the future.
  This last card was made using a MS All Around Punch that I could not wait to buy and then used it maybe once or twice, so it was just time to bring it back out.

This may do it for me today, but hopefully I'll be back tomorrow.  I thank you for stopping by.  It is always nice to see company here.  Enjoy your upcoming weekend.


  1. Gorgeous cards, Donna! Don't you love when you find something in your stash you forgot you had? You definitely put your finds to good use! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Look at you crafting the night away! Nice job on all of these! I especially love the horse card with those great papers, but the MS punch card is awesome, and looks so unique and pretty the way you've used it! Great job, and I wish you a great weekend too :)

  3. Three fabulous cards Donna! Great way to use up the rub on and it's so pretty on this card. The gold just sets everything off!
    Love that horse image on the second one and those fantastic colors. The third one is just so WOW! Great design and the use of that punch and love the scoring!
    Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. Love all three of these, Donna! I, too, like that black and brown paper and it's fabulous with the horse image. I'm so glad you reminded me about rub-ons. I have a ton of them that haven't seen daylight in probably 5 years also. Time to dig them out. :-D

  5. GORGEOUS cards, Donna! You showed those items some love and then some!!! Way to recycle sweet friend :)

    Sending you tons of hugs!

  6. Donna, beautiful collection of cards, great inspiration to gleam from. Rub ons, have tons, but forget to use. Thanks for the reminder. Thanks for visiting and leaving the sweet luv.

  7. Sorry, I have been lost in space, I think! My get up and go has gotten up and went. Good for you, putting all these goodies to use! Great creations.
