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.

OWH Sketch #78

Here is a sketch I had not done yet.  (I have a list.... ok..... I do... sheesh!)  The paper is Flavia I found in an old paper drawer.  The gold stars have a nice shine to them so they stand out better than the picture shows.  I am trying to do at least one of each of the OWH sketches.... it is kind of a stretch but, keeps me thinking.

Happy Easter!

Today I celebrate the victory of my Lord, Jesus over sin and death!
  Here are some of the cards I made for OWH box. 
I made a few of each of these designs.
Even one a little masculine!
I hope you all had a blessed Easter!

More Masculine

Yay!  Internet for today!  So, I'm going to post a bunch..... please bear with me.

The first one for today is another masculine card.  I love these deer heads in part because they are an awesome image but also because they require NO coloring.  I only color a few times a year...... I'm afraid I might get hooked on Copics and that would just be another addiction.  (good excuse?)  I don't have enough time (or cash really) to get hooked on something else.  I need to use what I have to try to bring down the hoarding piles. Got 4 of these made for the OWH box.

Masculine Just For You

Men need "Just for You" cards too!  Made 8 for the OWH box.  I really like this deer head digi that I received from Free Vintage Digital Stamps...... it works well for any season.

ODBD April 2014 Challenge - Insects

Wow, it is hard to believe that I have not posted anything in over a month!  But, stressful life challenges took over and I lost my internet and I'm in the middle of packing and moving.  Whew!  Today I do have a card to post as I took seriously an article on crafting and how it effects the brain and emotions.  I needed to tinker in paper even if all the boxing isn't done and all the challenges are still there.  I am realizing how tired I feel when I can't take some time to putter in paper.

So, not to drag it all out here is a card scrap wrangled with tiny butterflies.  This one is for the ODBD April Challenge over at OWH Starts and Stamps blog.  I can feel the stress starting to melt away..............  I'll be posting more today and hopefully tomorrow as well.  Happy weekend everyone!
