OWH Cards for Kids & My Favorite Things Fundraiser


Sandy Allnock  announced a super fundraiser for Operation Write Home during OWHtv Episode 87 – a My Favorite Things stamp sale. Since we had the option to order up to 3 sets of stamps, that’s what I did. I just received my first pair yesterday.

I used Fred Bear Out West this morning. So cute for the little cowboy / cowgirl peep in a Hero’s life.

Here’s how I used him.

Fred is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock and is colored with Stampin’ Up pencils. Howdy is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. Tan paper is DCWV Silky Smooth. Brown is from DCWV Tattered Time Stack. Rope is, I think, DCWV as well. Cardfront is Wausau Fleck cardstock, colored with Distress Inks Tea Dye. Shapeabilities Ovals and Scalloped Ovals dies.

This is a perfect submission for the OWH Cards for Kids Midweek Throwdown.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Spring Flowers


Operation Write Home has the first midweek throwdown of the year posted – Spring Flowers.

Here’s my take –

Floral papers are from DCWV Summer Stack. Vellum is from Recollections. Sentiment is TPC Studio Whimsy Greetings in Distress Inks Peeled Paint. Sentiment Background is Distress Inks Tea Dye.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Winter Fun


Operation Write Home has a new midweek throwdown up – Winter Fun. Basically, create a fun winter themed card.

As I don’t have any “winter” stamp sets, I used a Cafe set and my own sentiment.

Red paper is DCWV from Xmas pack, brown is DCWV textured, Wausau Fleck cardstock, Shapeabilities scalloped octagons, circles and ric rac dies. Sentiment from my computer, cups from TPC Studio Coffee Cafe Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I’m probably going to end up coloring these cups. If I do, I’ll add a new picture.
