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.

Midweek Throwdown - Tic Tac Toe

Here is the link to this week's MWT at OWH Stars and Stamps blog.  My card for the tic-tac-toe includes embossing, blue and ribbon.  I made these during the week while waiting.  I apologize if they are not the best I have done but,

it has been a tough 2 weeks as it was decided by my baby sister that she was too worn out to continue any further treatments in her 5 year long battle against breast cancer.  Yesterday afternoon she went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  She was the person I learned scrapbooking with which eventually lead to my cardmaking.  She was a contributor to OWH as she believed strongly in what we are doing.  She was always upbeat and cheerful right to the end.  I love her dearly!

Beautiful card! I love the Mother's Day sentiment. Is it a stamp, digi or computer generated?
