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.

Girly Birthday, Manly Birthday and some Love in between!

Shopping only in my own stuff I made these 3.  The first was made with left over paper and some not quite all used up K&Co. borders and embellishments.

This one being a little more arsty with the DP insert cut with the Cricut.
And the masculine card used some fabulous deep embossed sports paper that someone sent to me a few years back.  The swiss dots were embossed into this slick charcoal colored leftover.

Lovin' those Leftovers! Thank you!

These cards made from leftovers (aka scraps) went together really quickly.  The photo doesn't show it but at least one of the color panels on each card is chalkboard paper so it has a nice texture and not just so plain.

It was easy peasy so I made 3 more!

Hello Handsome!

I'm starting off this Saturday morning with some cards showing some love to the men.  I made 8 of these.  The stag head is a digi from Free Vintage Digital Stamps and is one of my fav go-to digis.

OWH Sketch Challenge #210

The OWH Sketch Challenge for today is the 3rd in the Super Cardbowl Weekend celebration.  The Cardbowl challenge is to use the sketch for today to make a masculine card.  I'm going to make 6 cards with this paper and sketch and that should fill up that last space in my OWH box to be sent out.  Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone!

ODBD February 2014 Challenge

This is the 2nd challenge for the Superbowl weekend "Cardbowl" and is in combination with Our Daily Bread Designs monthly challenge.  The challenge is to make a masculine card using primarily brown as the color.  I've got more than a 12x12 sheet of the argyle so I will make a pile of these for the Operation Write Home box.

OWH Cardbowl 2014 Challenge #1

Sandy came up with the idea for celebrating the Superbowl weekend with a "Cardbowl."  There are 3 challenges over 3 days starting yesterday.  The cards are all to be masculine themed and each has a twist.  This first one is to make a card using the colors of one of the teams in the Superbowl.  I chose the orange and blue of the Denver Broncos and surprised myself by using a football and green striped paper for the field as well.  I am please to see the Seahawks in the Superbowl and hope for an exciting game.
