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.

Winter Missing You

Needing a rest from this time of stress I DECIDED to make a card this morning.  Our deployed Heroes still need me to remember them.  So here is my snowy card for today.  The dry embossed background was given some extra color with distressing and dots with a metallic pen. The top layer of the snowflake is all glossed over with Dimensional Magic.  I did the sentiment with Word.

SS Challenge - Music Theme

I am so shocked and happy that I made another card today.  This one is for a challenge that was posted on Seongsook's Stampers FB page.  This was the only piece of music paper I could find in all this packing.  The embellishment is layered thin cardboard and slightly popped.

ODBD Challenge - Snowflakes Non-Christmas

This month the ODBD Challenge is to make a snowflake card that is not Christmas.  I have packed up a lot of my supplies already but had these lovely snowflake stickers still out.  The 3 panels were leftovers from some previous cards so this worked out well since the Christmas/Winter paper has already been packed.  The snowflake border is a sticker border and the sentiment is slightly popped.

SS (Seongsook's Stampers) Challenge - Dry Embossing

I know I am not posting much lately but all this packing towards the unknown departure date is very hard.  And I'm trying to sell off a bunch of stuff from the farm as well.  (Ever tried to pack up a farm?) This whole horrible ordeal just really needs to have a light start to show up at the end of that tunnel.

I am glad to have made a least one card recently.  I found the flower makings in a box of "forgotten" pre-cut items and the embossing is for the most recent SS dry embossing challenge.

I think I need a real long paper vacation!  :)
