CARDZ TV Challenge #35 Celebrate The Harvest

Hi all,,

Today I made a card for the CARDZ Challenge#35 Celebrate the Harvest.  I used an image from KaDoodle Bug Designs, my silhouette  cameo print and cut feature and the Martha Stewart fence punch.  The paper is from my stash. I also used the pinking embossing folder and my cuttlebug.  I am  adding this A2 size card to my box of cards for Operation Write Home.2013-09-16 16.40.59

Operation Write Home VCMP Cards For Kids Challenge

2013-09-0413.24.56The challenge on this stop is to make a kiddie card using the tic-tac-toe board
shown below. I choose to go down the center row for my card.  This was a lot of fun to make.  The sheep is from the silhouette store.  The fence is a Martha Stewart punch. It originally had little bats on the posts but I clipped them off so it wouldn’t be just for Halloween. Thank you Scrapping with Purpose for a great challenge.

Operation Write Home VCMP Final Challenge

Hi, The final challenge is to use a negative of a die or punch.

2013-08-13 07.58.13I used the negative cut of my shape on the butterfly paper and stamped my sentiment in the space created when I taped it onto my card. I used a Martha Stewart stamp for the butterfly, colored it with Tombow Dual Brush pens and hand cut it out.

Hi,

I made this fall card for Operation Write Home VCMP challenge #7.  We were to make a card with a fall theme with an I Love You, Miss You or Thinking About You sentiment.  I actually made two versions with different papers.  The papers were from a pad I bought last year at Michaels.  I used the  cut and print feature on my silhouette for the cute little bear from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I embossed using the pinking folder from Cuttlebug.  I plan on making a few of these to add to my box of cards for OWH.

Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown X 3

Hi all,

I know I have been away from this blog for a while but I have had a lot happen. I had another grandchild born which was such a blessing. I spent a lot of time with my daughter after the birth.  I also had surgery to remove my gall bladder.  I am feeling so much better now. Needless to say I have been itching to get back into my craft room.

Operation Write Home put up another challenge this week. They are challenging us to use something on our card three times, an embellishment, stamped image  etc.  for our heroes to send home to their family and friends!

I made this thank you card using my silhouette.  The flower-pot and sentiment were from their on-line store.  I used paper from my stash and flowers from Michael’s. I love the colors.

Please keep the people in Oklahoma in your thoughts.  They need all the prayers and help we can give.20130522_152808

I hope you all have a great week and enjoy this Memorial Day Weekend.

Thinking of You Card for Operation Write Home

20130313_143521Hi,

I know it has been awhile since my last post.  I have a new grandson and have been helping my daughter.  I have been fortunate to have two new grandbabies born. One in December and one end of February.  The joy they bring is beyond measure.

I made this card for Operation Write Home and Dynamic Duo and their color challenge for this week. We were challenged to make a card using blue and green. The card is 4.25 by 5.5. I used my cameo and the print and cut feature. The little bird is from the silhouette on line store. The blue background paper is from DCWV.

Silhouette Birthday Swing Card for Operation Write Home

Hi,

I have been busy making cards for Operation Write Home.  This week’s challenge was to make a card with a fun fold.  I chose a swing birthday cake card that I  got from the 2013-02-21 13.54.42 on-line store.  I decorated the front of the card with Tim Holtz distress inks.  I used the cut outs for the cake as masks for the front.   The icing layer on the front of the card was a  Martha Stewart stamp I purchased during Halloween. I love using my stash for things other than what they were intended for.  I used Recollections paper for the base and2013-02-21 13.53.36 insi2013-02-21 13.54.26de of the card.  I added a little stickles to the candles on the front.

I had a lot of fun making this card.
