Tomorrow is Memorial Day and I plan on remembering all the heroes by making cards for Operation Write Home. Today I think I found a new recruit - my sister! And Lord knows, I've got enough "stuff" for fifty new recruits!!! Here's the samples of this evening's post picnic work. ~Nancy F.

I also made some ruffled cards this weekend. The first two went into the trash, I don't know why I was having so much trouble with them, it was mostly my poor taste in papers, because I was more concerned about trying to use up scraps. When I finally decided to find some nice paper that I liked and wanted to use, things progressed a lot better. So, the scraps are back in the scrap bin. ~ Nancy F.

I like this sketch - it's helping me use up some of those larger sized scraps that are piling up in a drawer. I also have a lot of cake stickers, which don't really get much use, so maybe it's about time! ~ Nancy F.
This sketch really got me crackin' and so here's the rest of my contribution to Sketch 68, once my mojo really got in gear.
A special thanks to the person who drew up today's sketch! ~N.

April has been pretty crappy in my area, rain, rain, some more rain, a little more rain...... And finally! May first has brought a beautiful day! Yeah! Today's sketch inspired me to use some really cute papers that I've been hoarding for a couple of years. My niece leaves for the Navy in 2 weeks, and I was thinking of her the whole time I worked on this card. The dog tag says 'passport to adventure' and I popped the ship and one of the suitcases. At first I thought it needed the brown bling at the top right, but once I had it on, I thought it was better without it, except that I couldn't peel the blasted things off, so there they will stay..... ~ Nancy F.
I had lost my mojo and was looking through the cards posted on Operation Write Home's Facebook page. These were inspired by Jan Hunnicutt. She used a lot of vibrant colors, with a lot of black layering. I'm really happy with the way these turned out! And I got a little mojo back in the process! ~ Nancy F.
