More cards for Operation Write Home. This time, I'm skipping Valentine's Day, and just making love cards, which is what they are suggesting. This way, the cards can be used all year long, instead of just for one day.
Sketch #240 - I love this little gnome. I stamped him and masked him and stamped the birch trees on top.
The background is just white paper with ink brushed over top.
Pigs! Who doesn't love pigs! I'm getting used to limiting my cards to five of a kind now. OWH is only accepting multiples of five with the draw down of troops and a less need for cards.
I learned a little lesson about not putting my initials on the backs of my cards and have finally started to be
diligent about it.
Thank goodness there are plenty of Seinfeld reruns, or else a lot of the troops out there would be too young to even know what Yada, yada, yada was all about......
Finally getting back to the all time consuming activity of real stamping. I love getting all inky. I'm also using these as part of the September Challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs - make your own background.
Operation Write Home held a really super virtual card making party this weekend! I'm still not done with all the challenges, but I like to think I'm over half way through.
MidWeek Throwdown was to use a flag on your card.
For the His & Hers challenge, I used Sketch #205. I'm also including the truck card in the masculine with a vintage image card. That helps me feel like I'm further along.......or is it farther?
Here's my thank you card, also covering Our Daily Bread challenge of "things with wings" and a thick
Any Hero card. I guess it could also cover the travel challenge, although I had some other stamp in my mind for that one. There's time....
Red, white & blue birthday -
Colorful background - I used up some scraps -
And paper piecing with a miss you for kids - looks like I forgot to put the "miss you" on these....
Winter image using red, white and blue -
This doubles as more flag cards and the thin any hero which can also be used to write home.
And finishing up with Sketch #232. I think this will end up being one of my favorite cards for 2014.
My glossy accents isn't quite dry on the dots.....
Where did June go? I'm still on a blog roll. I managed to squeek out the MidWeek Throwdown for missing you cards for kids, the sketch card for today and I just got the Mama Elephant stamp set and dies that are benefiting Operation Write Home this month. They're quite fun to play with, but I'm still trying to get a handle on using the dies. Yes, I've tried templates with post its. It's a work in progress.....
