Good morning people, happy sunday to you all and it's another challenge over at OSAAT this wk which is celebrating the birthday of Operation write home. There are regulations for the cards made for this which you can read about here. Here is a little info on them...
Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong! Our challenge to you is to make cards to send to them for our nation’s heroes.
Here is my first card for this challenge and I have used an image from Cardmad fairy available at the stitchy bear store
For this card I followed the sketch over at stamp with fun this wk and used these yummy digi papers from my lovely friend susan over at crafty chaos.
I would also like to enter this into Tuesday throwdowns challenge of distressed for OWH, Cute card thursdays challenge of tweet and flutter as there is a butterfly on my project from hobbyhabitat, totally papercrafts challenge of happy birthday and secret crafters anything goes challenge. My lace and gems are from stash, I have distresses with Tim Holtz dusty concord, my flowers are wild orchids and my flourishes are marianne creatables
My next card has been made using an image from Lexi also available in store, this is Chrissie. I have again used Susans lovely digi papers and this time have followed the sketch iver at sweet sketch wednesday
I am also entering this into Digital tuesdays challenge of sports theme (she is rollerskating) and stamp somethings digi day challenge.
I have used ribbon, prima flowers and brads from stash. My sentiment stamp is papermania, my butterflys are MS punched and my die cut corner is again from hobbyhabitat
I have kept both my cards simple for the OWH rules and have made them both A2 size as opposed to the normal square, I have also not added any glitter which is all totally out of my comfort zone and I'm not sure how much I like my cards like this lol! I would love it if you could join in with our challenge again this wk for such a wrthy cause!
Lastly a quick thankyou to the 45 comments I recieved on my post last wk for the autism challenge and so to pick my winner for the candy and at random it is Scrappy scatty! Please e mail me at email@example.com with your address so I can send out your goodies to you! Hugs everyone
