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.

Easter/Spring Challenge

When I see the birds returning I think Spring must be right around the corner.  I made the bird and green leafy thing with my new Cricut.

MWT- Fantasy Floral

The Midweek Throwdown at OWH Stars and Stamps was to make cards with flowers.

Flowers were fun!  They are a mix of silk and paper and I used a really cool gold mesh on the paper that I got on a nice sale at Michael's.

This month's challenge at Stars and Stamps blog sponsored by ODBD is for us to make cards using at least 3 patterned papers on each card.  I think swirly background paper qualifies, don't you?

New DCWV paper

My husband got me this nice DCWV paper pad called The Four Seasons and this paper was the first page on top!  Sooooo pretty!  I made 3 of these, 3 of the following and there are 3 more cards in the making.  All from ONE sheet of 12x12 paper!  On the next card is a pinecone stamp that he got me as well.  The green satin ribbon matched the birds perfectly.
