Operation Write Home Blog Hop

I made these cards for Operation Write Home’s blog hop. We were to use a winter theme to make cards that our heroes could use to send home to their love ones.  The first one is made using  Close to My Heart winter sentiment and snowflakes from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used liquid pearls to decorate the snowflakes and the ink was one of Megan’s little juicy stamp pads from Above Rubbies Studio.  I love the way the colors match. I added a little stickles to the bottom snowflake and popped up the sentiment and center snowflake to add demension.

The second card was made using the same cartridge and stamp set.  Only this time I used the OWH sketch 139 as my inspiration.  The pattern paper is from Recollections.  I used the liquid pearls again to add demension and sparkle and popped up the center snowflake.

I hope you are enjoying the card hop. Please consider joining us in making cards for our heroes. It is our way of saying thankyou and letting them know we care.  Feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them.

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.
