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.

 

Operation Write Home’s VCMP challenge

OWH    Operation Write Home’s VCMP‘s next  challenge is to make a card with a snowflake theme but not Christmas.  This theme was selected by Cindy’s Card Co blog.  I used my cricut and paper from my stash to make this card.  I hope you enjoy it!!  Fun thinking of snow when the air conditioning is on. LOL

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.

Creative time for me new stamp release
