I needed to make these cards to express our sympathy for the loss of an elderly gentleman who happened to be a local newspaper publisher. I chose this image because it reminded me of a young man venturing out into the world with his newspaper tucked under his arm. I also used the op ed piece about him from the local paper for my script background mat and tab.

I know several card makers who tell me when they cut their 8-1/2" x 11" paper in half to make a card, they go ahead and use the other half, always making two cards at a time. Do you make just one card at a time, or while your supplies are out, do you make multiples? I know I often will stamp the image more than once and file away the reserves. And I've been reading that several of you will make several backgrounds at once, especially when it involves a new technique. This is the first time I made three cards-- with the same image-- in one sitting.
