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.

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 Challenge Celebrate Friendship

Hi,
I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe October is almost over.

This week OWH has challenged us to make friendship cards for our troops to send home.

I made this card using the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I cut the little pig and hen at 4 inches. I added liquid pearls to the pig , hen and sun for dimension.  I also used glossy accents. The paper for the background is from the cricut celebrations paper pack. The ticket stamp is a Close to My Heart stamp and the little tag and sentiment is from teeny tag sentiments by  My Creative Time. The finished card measures 5.50 by 4.25.

I love to get feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Hi all,

I am loving this wonderful weather here in NJ.  I was inspired to create this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge when I watched some neighbor children skateboarding today.  We were to create a card using a form of transportation.  I did not want to do the usual modes of travel so I thought skateboarding would be a great alternative.  Hope you enjoy it.  I used the cricut cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls and CTMH stamp It’s Your Day for the sentiment.

VCMP for OWH, ODBD challenge #1

ODBD challenge #1 for OWHI made this card for Operation Write Home’s Labor Day hop.  ODBD is sponsoring our first challenge.  We were to make a card with an encouraging sentiment.  I love making cards for OWH and encourage you to join us in this very rewarding endeavor.  Helping our troops stay in touch with their  love ones is one way of saying thankyou for all they do.

For this card I used the Martha Stwewart butterfly stamp. The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp.  I love this sentiment.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  Enjoy the three days off.  I know I am.

Patriotic Thinking of You card for Operation Write Home

I used the cricut Stand and Salute cartridge to make Patriotic Thinking  of You cards for Operation Write Home.  I also made several with a female soldier. They requested cards with Patriotic themes and general sentiments that can be used for love, thinking of you, congratulations, miss you etc.  These cards can be used for all of those.

Back to Reality

Hi All,

Just got back from a wonderful vacation with my children and grandchildren.  We all had a blast.  I especially enjoyed watching my two granddaughters, aged 2 and 2 1/2, swimming everyday, dancing at night, and just having a grand old time with each other.  There is nothing better than family.

Now I have to get back to creating some cards for OWH, I know they need some general theme cards and fall holiday cards are due by end of August.  I also need to finish the  scrapbook pages of my granddaughters’ second year before they get any older. LOL
