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.

MWT - Things With Wings

The MidWeek Throwdown at OWH is Things With Wings.  I had made these cards before I knew the challenge.  (How the heck did that happen?)  I thought this DCWV paper was simply summery and with Sandy's inspirational card last week using just pretty paper and a sentiment, well, this one seemed like a no-brainer.  The only thing I added was the punched butterfly, the heart gem, the sentiments and the bee.  Ok, a little ruffles and stitching as well but basically, this is just the pretty paper. 
The bee is a K&Co. 3-D sticker that I covered in Dimensional Glaze to give him some special love.

OWH Sketch #125

This week's sketch is great for using up some of my sticker alphabet that doesn't seem to get much love.  The "O" is an epoxy sticker from EK Success.  I made this one in the evening and the lighting was less than desirable so the shiny red paper I used is more like pink in the daylight.  Oh, well, this would work for one of our female Heroes!  I've got more stickers left on this sheet so more Hero cards are in the making!  :)

2 More! Nice and Bright!

I seem to be making them in 2's right now.  Both of these were made from the same paper, oops, can't remember who's and the chipboard embellishments are K&Co.

K&Co Thinking of You 2

Here are some more that I made with the same bunch of supplies.  Not to worry, all the glittery spots are sealed.  And the patterned paper is definitely an Oldie Moldie qualifier as I think it must be 10 years old!  Looks new to me today!  LOL!

K&Co Thinking of You

These are made with K&Co cardstock border stickers and floral die cuts.  I just added the little extra bling to the flowers.  The yellow borders are a lovely matte/shiny paper I picked up at M's on clearance.  Oh, the die cuts and borders were also on clearance.  Got to love clearance!

OWH Sketch #98

This is from Stars and Stamps blog sketch #98 AND wrangling some scraps.  The black scroll work is a velvet sticker on a roll from the dollar store and the embellishment is a chipboard sticker from Basic Grey Ambrosia collection.

Hero Cards

It is odd how I can be just stumped over making a card and then Poof!  It's a card!  I know this one isn't fancy but, my toys and supplies are all packed up for moving and I had to dig into a few things just to get this stuff.  The gold and blue stars were punched from shiny paper.  I made 6 and if I can find more of the stars paper I will make another set.  This will give me some to write in while on the road.
