Happy Birthday Snow Angel

Hello everyone!  Short fall, shorter days, and still not enough time for cards!  I stole a few moments tonight to design a card for this month's Mid-Month Throwdown Challenge over at Operation Write Home, creating a winter birthday card.  In addition, I doubled up with Our Daily Bread Designs challenge using snowflakes.  Quick post for a quick card, add to my kid section!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Do you remember when you wished for Christmas every day?  Well, Sandy over at Operation Write Home has a small need for a few more Christmas cards and she gave us an extension to make a few (5) more!  Woohoo!  So I got out a favorite sketch and went to work, hope you enjoy!

Miss You and Hello: OWH Sketch #238

Happy Sunday everyone!  It's a great day, time to make a few cards with the latest sketch from Operation Write Home.  I just sooo… love this sketch, so much I made two different color ways, a guys and a gals one!  I hope you liked it as much as I did!  Best wishes for a great week.

I trimmed the bingo cards down, matted, and covered the
the original sentiment with a new computer generated one.

I so love this one, I couldn't decide which I liked best to post to OWH!

Happy World Card Making Day everyone!  If this isn't a reason to celebrate the love of our craft, I don't know what would be!  Over at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps, we're celebrating WCMD by making Love cards, and guess what?  It's a blog hop too!  Over a hundred card makers participating, sharing their love for card making and for our Heroes, who give everyday, proudly protecting our country!   Well, off to blog hopping, hope it's a good one for you too!

P.S. Stop by Operation Rolling Tape Gun to see the latest news about the troops draw down and the card needs of OWH and our Heroes.  Early Christmas card delivery is almost here, Sandy needs versatile, year round type cards.
