OWH Midweek Throwdown – Cards for Kids


The midweek throwdown this week at Operation Write Home is to make Cards for Kids.

Wausau Fleck cardstock. Monsters and GRRRRR from Recollections My Little Monsters, colored with Crayola True to Life pencils. Scribble is from TPC Studio Cupcakes set in no id ink. HELLO is TPC Studio Whimsy Greetings. Balloons from Hero Arts OWH Birthday set, paper pieced from DCWV The Paper Stack. Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.


ODBD October Challenge with OWH


The Operation Write Home / Our Daily Bread Design Challenge for October is to make a card using circles. I have a set of fabulous vintage embellishment stamps that have loads of different buttons plus a Circle Trio Sizzlit that several of the designs fit on. I also just got this monster stamp set that I love and another set with a True Love sentiment that is perfect for this idea. Let’s see how we can put this all together.

White cardstock base, Wausau fleck card front.
Monsters: Recollections – My Little Monsters
True Love: TPC Studio – Hugs and Kisses
Button: Inkadinkado – Buttons
Sizzix Sizzlit – Circle Trio

My only issue was drawing the strings for the balloons. I wish I’d done it more cleanly. Still totally cute.

Hurricane Bells Monsters Video


The song Monsters by Hurricane Bells from the Twilight Saga New Moon Soundtrack is one of my favs.

The band is actually Steve Schiltz – he wrote & performed all the songs on the album ‘Tonight Is the Ghost’. Monsters doesn’t appear on the album but was recorded at the same time. It was discovered by New Moon people who decided it would be great as Edward’s theme – the song is playing when Edward pulls into the school parking lot for the first time and gets out of his Volvo.

The monsters are buried down deep inside
You never know when they’re satisfied
Buried down deep where the sun don’t shine
The monsters are buried down deep inside

Video was produced by Bill Moldt. It’s a very amusing treatment for the song.
