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.

Today I have one of each. I think I kind of like it that way. Then the more manly cards don't get forgotten (to be made). The fishing card was made with a sticker and scraps and the Happy Birthday card is a flower from my magazine stash.

I'm trying to keep a balance in making masculine and feminine cards. Here are two simple ones. The Frilly one has those Stickles on it, (my first time using it) since I had read that this glitter glue is safe to use. After it dried I rubbed and rubbed with my finger to see if I could get it to flake and it didn't. But I think I will put a dot of Dimensional Magic on top just to be even more sure.

This was my 2nd attempt at the Starburst card. I started this one last night and finished it this morning. It has been raining since early this morning so I have had to wait until a break in the clouds to get some sunlight.

I had some stickers that my daughter gave to me a long time ago that were Mickey and Minnie Mouse. I was inspired to use them after the OWH mini hop where cards were made using stickers. These stickers have a red background so I mounted them on red paper, framed in black and then mounted them on white cardstock. Then, took 2 (yes only 2) 12x12 sheets of that red and black Mickey paper and made 19 cards! Go Mickey! All that was left of the 12x12 sheets were 2 2"x1" bits that I didn't feel guilty about going into the trash.
Here are some of them close up. The hearts on some of them were stickers too that I mounted and added dots to to make the white scallops.

I hadn't done one of the sketch challenges at Operation Write Home in a long time and today this one just jumped out at me. I thought this one could go "sentiment-less" and be used for used about any reason.
