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.

Fall-ish Thanks

I know it isn't fall yet, but, Operation Write Home has deadlines that are always a season or two ahead of what season we are actually in. 

That way the cards can get sorted, shipped and to our Heroes in time for them to be able to use them in the proper season. 

I made these fall-ish cards with just the sentiment Thanks so that they could be used without having to be a Thanksgiving specific card. 

I made several of each of the different styles.

Stars & Stamps MWT - Masculine

The Midweek Throwdown at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog is to make masculine cards.  The embellishment was made with the Cricut.

More Love for the Leftovers

I'm really making an effort to love the leftovers and here is the next parade after the one from last week.  The parade began with the previous post and I'm trying to keep the momentum going.  This first one has an embellishment made on the Cricut. 

The fish and lure are rub-ons and will qualify for the ODBD Challenge for July.
Thanks for looking, have a great week and let's keep showing love to our Heroes!

Lovin' the Leftovers!

Today I'm going to show some love to the "Leftovers"!  These are all cards made with scraps, leftovers, whatever you want to call them.  Lately, I have found myself filling up a box with card fronts made with the leftovers. 

They don't all make whole cards instantly because I don't necessarily have the mo-jo to complete them.  But it keeps the scrap pile down and still gets future cards started.

Here is my parade of cards for today.  The above card is made with a free digi from Paula.  It is a favorite of mine!  Thanks Paula.

Since I still have more 12x12 paper than the smaller 6x6 pads I often end up with a large piece leftover.  This last one I had enough of the DP to make 4!  Happy Sunday everyone!
