Wow, was I surprised and excited to be nominated as a Featured Cardmaker on the OWH Stars and Stamp blog! I've been making cards for Operation Write Home since last summer. OWH is a non-profit organization that collects hand made greeting cards and distributes them to deployed servicemembers to send to loved ones. Even though our troops have left Iraq, there is still a large demand for cards in Afghanistan and many other parts of the world. If you're a card maker, I challenge you to get involved! There are a few simple rules and lots of information to help you get started on their website. If you're not a cardmaker, you can get involved by making a financial donation to help with shipping costs, or write some Any Hero letters, which are sent with each shipment of cards.
Today I'd like to share some cards I have finished in the last couple of weeks. There's been been lots of puttering around in the craft room but few completed cards! My friend Deb and I recently got together for a "crafternoon" and made the some Cricut cards:
This whimsical pup is from the Doodlecharm cartrtidge. We used various neutral card stock from Stampin' Up! and a polka dot print from the Flea Market pad from Colorbok. We ran the blue scarf through the Cuttlebut, distressed and inked some edges, and added a bit of twine to finish it off! The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms (a website you should definitely check out if you're into making "punny" cards).
That's about it for now! Hope you are having a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
