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.

For the OWH Shippers!

I made this card thinking about the amazing shippers that work so VERY hard for OWH. I can imagine this is better than sugarplums dancing in their heads!

Hydrangea Love

I know this one isn't Christmas-y. I am working on more holiday cards, but this one is for the Valentine's Day collection for OWH. I have to have all these LOVE ones in the mail by the end of December so they can get to the Heroes in time for them to use for Valentines. This could be used for a LOVE in general, which is nice.

More Winter Love

I know this is not conventional colors. I was going for winter (could be snow on the ground in February!) LOVE!

More Love #2

I am still working on the Valentine cards for OWH. This has been fun to make them without any hearts. I think I will have to make some with hearts, but these seemed just fine without them.

Love Tulips!

I do love tulips! They are the most beautiful signs that Spring is here. The come up before all the other flowers in the garden almost daring it to snow and stay winter longer. This image I colored while I was waiting for my leg surgery. I need to make Valentine type cards for OWH's next box to go out so here is my next addition.

Joy, Peace, Love, Christmas!

I got a chance to visit my LSS about 3 weeks ago and use their Cricut machine. I made these mistletoe and frames. I am still learning how to use it so I am sticking with the simple shapes. I made the faux scallops by glueing dots to the back of the frame. The stamp is Inkadinkado Holiday Filigree and the punch is Emagination.

Happy Veteran's and Rememberance Day

Happy Veteran's Day to Americans and Rememberance Day to Canadians! I am running like a crazy woman getting things ready for my surgery tomorrow, but I just had to make a card for our Heroes. The sentiment came from Create with TLC, she posted it as a freebie some time back. Thank you, Paulette.

Does this look like a Valentine?

This week I am getting ready to go in for surgery on my leg. Those of you who know me know that I have struggled with this rod and bolts for a very long time and finally I am getting them out. It has been a tough emotional ride these past years and now hopefully there is light at the end of the tunnel. Anyway, I have been trying to make myself some "kits" to put together while laid up in bed and I figured the Valentine ones would be a good cheery theme to work on. Sandy sent me this wonderful image (in multiples) and I had this lovely red paper in my stash which I punched to look like lace. It just said "LOVE" to me. What do you think?
