In keeping with my goal I decided to do a few more past challenges from Operation Write Home.
For this card I used Operation Write Home Sketch #154Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Spring Flowers from January 2, 2013.
All these papers were scraps from page layouts or cards so I'm not exactly sure of the names. I believe the flower print is Bella Boulevard and the pink background is the backside of a Webster's Pages. The sentiment is a Just Rite Stamp that I used pink ink and heat embossed with clear powder then used a circle punch. I put foam tape behind the sentiment for dimension.
My next card I used Operation Write Home Sketch #155.
ODBD January Challenge. ODBD (Our Daily Bread Designs) is a stamp company that supports Operation Write Home. They host a challenge once a month. Not only do they offer a prize to a winner picked randomly but two boxes of handmade cards made for our deployed troops to send to their loved ones are shipped for free!
Their challenge this month is to include dry embossing on your card. They suggested maybe making Easter cards. So I thought...why not! This card is pretty simple but I liked it once I was done. It's easy enough I may make some multiples and just might get a package sent in time for the Easter deadline which is Feb 7th.
Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown - Easter.
I've just got to share what Kennedy said to me last night. I am trying to write down the cute things she says so I will remember when she's all grown up! She spent the night with me last night. She had fallen asleep on the way back from feeding my horse. I let her sleep...too long and consequently we were up late.As we were laying in the bed she says to me "Tatah, my eyes are not sleepy". I had to laugh! I said "you're eyes might not be sleepy but Tatah's sure are!"
Have a good one!
