Cards for OWH

I am getting ready to mail over 100 cards to Operation Write Home today! My DD helped me get them all ready, packaged and counted.

There is plenty of time to enter the Sentimental Sundays challenge this week. We are asking you to make and send one or more Christmas cards to OWH. You can find the details on the Sentimental Sundays blog. Since it is OWH's birthday this week, there are also plenty of other challenges around the web that you can enter your cards in. You can find more information on the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog.

Wow! That is so awesome! I have a group of ladies coming to my house in Oct. for a OWH cardmaking event. I hope to have 100 too, but I will only design the samples and prep the supplies. They will do the making part :) Sorry, I forgot to mention before that the new blog look is great!

Give Thanks

With Thanksgiving coming up later this week, I thought I would make one last autumn themed card for the year using my favorite autumn image, Blessed Harvest (digital stamp) by Whimsy and Stars Studio.   I tried something a little different for me, I colored on kraft paper.  As often as I use kraft paper, I realized that I rarely color on it.   I also stepped outside my comfort zone again and left some white space.    Once I was finished with the card, I decided it looked a bit bare with out a sentiment so I created a rub on in order to add one on.  (You can see my tutorial on how to create a custom rub on here.)Thank you for stopping by!   Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!   Thank you for stopping by.Supplies:Stamps:   Blessed Harvest (digital stamp) by Whimsy and Stars Studio Inks:  Distress Ink Antique Linen Papers:  Papertrey Rustic Cream & Kraft CS, Simple Stories Harvest Lane paper pad Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities (circle),  Die-na…

March Followers Candy

March is here. I wanted to put together a St. Patrick’s Day themed candy but never got the chance to get to the craft store. Instead, for March I have two 6x6 My Mind’s Eye paper pads to give to random follower. They may not be be good for St. Patty's Day crafting but they would make some gorgeous spring projects.

The usual rules apply.1) Please be a follower2) Leave your name and info in the linky tool below3 ) I would love it if you would post about my blog candy on your blog or Facebook, but it is not necessary.4) Leave a comment. It can be anything but I would really love to hear how you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Do you have a favorite dish you serve? Favorite Irish songs? Any other traditions?Entries close at midnight on 3-30-12. I will use random.org to pick a winner and post the name to my blog with in a week. The winner has 10 days to contact me with their mailing address to claim their prize or I will pick a new winner.
In the spirit of gearing up for St. Patt…

Poppy Birthday

Hello!  I'm popping in to share the card I made for my sister in law's birthday.

I really enjoyed coloring this gorgeous poppy from the Beautiful Day digital bundle from Graciellie Design.  I didn't want to hide the flower with a bunch of patterned papers so I kept the design simple.  (CAS is so out of my comfort zone!)  I finished with a sentiment from Stampin' Up.  This stamp is from one of the very first stamp sets I ever bought.





Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe!
