Operation Write Home

I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

Cards from the prize box!

During the Operation Write Home Birthday Bash, my name was drawn at random for a prize. It was a wonderful collection of items and images and here are the first 4 cards made with a mix of things from the box and my stash. It is has been fun so far and the items in the box will be making the return trip to WA as whole made cards. How cool is that??

OWH Midweek Throwdown - Love Theme

I recently purchased a flower making stencil and have been cutting up that pile of patterned paper scraps. I'm loving how easy it is to make these. This card was made from more scraps and RAK's.

Midweek Throwdown - Christmas Cards

First I have to say, wow, is it ever hard to photograph shiny silver paper! This stuff makes great ornaments for the cards, but the shine can be a bit tough to get a good picture of. This card is for 2 challenges that happen to be on at the same time. The first one is for a WCMD celebration over at Simply Rae blog. It is for her sketch challenge. And as I was making it yesterday I saw that it was also good for the OWH Midweek Throwdown. That sort of timing rarely happens to me.

Love You

This was made by using 2 stencils, one is the flower in 3 sizes and the other is the swirl on the side. The sentiment stamps is an old dime store stamp that just matched perfectly!

Raspberry Butterfly

I made this butterfly with an unknown brand of stamp bought off e-bay, added the glitter glue around the edges and sealed the whole thing in Dimensional Magic. I made it a few days ago. I know that it is Autumn and most of our card making is geared towards the holidays....... she, however, was crying out to be a card.

WCMD More Yellow/Orange Thank You Challenge

I know this one has a lot of pink but, it has yellow and orange in the circles and background. It is just happy paper!

WCMD Yellow/Orange Thank You Challenge

This one I went with more on the orange side of things. Fall is here and that wonderful color is everywhere!

WCMD Yellow Thank You Challenge

This is the 3rd one I made for the Paper Crafts Magazine yellow Thank You Challenge. I decided to stick with this challenge a bit since I rarely make yellow cards.

Paper Crafts Magazine FB Challenge

This is another one for the yellow or orange Thank You card challenge.

Happy World Card Making Day!

Like we need a holiday to make cards! LOL!!! But it is nice to have a day that celebrates card MAKERS! To start my day I made 2 cards for Paper Crafts Magazine's FB challenge to make yellow or orange Thank You cards. Since yellow and orange are not my go-to colors, I made these simple ones.
