Makin' cards with a Sailor

I  really enjoyed making cards with my niece today.  She'll be leaving for the Navy before I know it, and it was so nice to get to spend an afternoon with her, being creative.  We loosely followed the Operation Write Home challenges posted on their Facebook page today.  Here's what we accomplished...  ~Nancy F.

S&S Sketch #60

I've had this little tub of All Night Media/Dena Designs birthday stamps for probably 8 years.  I know I haven't touched them in at least 5.....poor, neglected tub of stamps.....  Anyway, as soon as I saw the sketch this morning, they popped into my head.  They are a bit difficult to color, but I'm happy with how the card turned out.   I tried to resist the bling in the corner, because I know it takes away from my focal point, but I failed.....  I'm pretty sure I'm not the only bling resisting failure out   ~Nancy F.

Going Dotty

I've really been neglecting my duties here and when I saw the challenge for OWH's Mid WeekThrowdown was to use 'dotty' paper I knew it was time to get busy.  I love circles and dots
on my cards and use them all the time. I decided to make a card for Mothers Day since apparently Operation Write Home needs GOBS of them..... guess I'll have to do a bit more work to get anywhere near GOBS status but for the moment at least I've got one.   I tend to collect cat stamps and when I saw this one on ebay I had to have it -- and it's purrfect for Mothers Day isn't it ?? The dotty paper is
from DCWV's new Dots and Plaids stack and the rest is Stampin Up. The 'doily die' is from My Favorite Things   --  Joanne M
