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.

Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge

I know I do these so out of order!  When I can't get right to them I do remember them when I find a particular paper or embellishment.  Most of my stuff is still in boxes so selection is limited and I DO get excited when I have the right combination for a challenge.  This challenge calls for a card made of black and white with a pop of color.  The black and white paper was from 2 glossy sheets of 12x12 that made 8 cards and used up the red ribbon (May Arts) that came in a prize pack from Sandy.

ODBD October Challenge

I know I haven't posted for over a month.  Life just gets crazy.  Well, I'm trying to get back in the swing of things so I started with the ODBD October Challenge.  The challenge is to use circles on the card.  This card has circles using the free digi from Paula.  This is also my Oldie Moldie Monday Challenge card.  It is using Brenda Walton Cabbage Roses and the accent paper is from Ever After.  I found those papers in the bottom of a box, sheesh!  I got a dozen (roses) cards from using it all up!  No leftover ribbon even.
