Thank goodness for Anna Griffin supplies

Yesterday and today I needed to make 35 cards for John to send to members of his bowls club, so I resorted to using supplies - papers, sentiments, die cuts (some of which were originally 3D, but I separated them to keep the cards flat to save on postage - from Anna Griffin, some of which I've had for quite some time, to make batches of cards. Here are some of them (more to follow). I'm linking these for Pixie's crafty snippets week 50 and Hiding in my craftroom 75: super scraps Saturday because I've used offcuts from some of these to use on others.

These are also for:
