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.

Stars and Stamps Blog Color Challenge X2

This week's Midweek Throwdown is a color challenge.  The colors to use are green and yellow.  Digging through my paper I found that yellow is not a major patterned paper color I have.  eeek!  And will all the paper I have you would think I might have more.  But, no!  LOL!  The first card might look like a familiar design.  That is because it is S&S Sketch #85. 
The second card is made with handmade paper and the rick-rac is velvet.

Beautiful cards! The label instead of ribbon for Sketch 85 looks terrific. Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

Two great cards. The papers on the first card are perfect for that sketch. Very elegant card. The rick-rac on your second card is just the perfect touch.
