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.

More LOVE-ing Pinwheels

It seems I got on a roll one night while watching a DVD and just started putting pinwheels together. Little did I realize as I was relaxing and pasting, that they were a bit harder to make into cards. That part wasn't so easy. But here are the 2 that came from the movie night.

OWH Facebook Party

I know it looks like I am just slow, but, I had to go make a roast, fry some potatoes and do some touch-up painting on a wooden Christmas yard art. Now back to my regularly scheduled play time! I ran out of sunlight so I had to resort to the scanner which doesn't show highly shiny stuff like the dots on the flower centers, they are actually silver.

First ever Pinwheels!

I have seen this technique done so many times and think it looks so cool, so today I decided to try it. These are my first 2. The one with the flower almost ended up in the trash after I stuck something where it didn't belong and then tore it trying to remove it. Yikes! OWH is having a Virtual Cardmaking Party on Facebook today and these will be the first of my creations for the Heroes today.

Rustic Snowflake

I decided to use "Friends" patterned paper since not all cards go to family. Friends are so very important in our lives. Here is my rustic version. The snowflakes were scrubbed with a sand and a bronze colored ink, the ribbon double layered to look snowy and penstitching to help make it look rustic.
