World Card Making Day 2014


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.


DP:  My Mind's Eye " Lost & Found Heirloom"  6x6 pad
Dies:  Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles Lg and Standard Circles Lg
Sketch:  OWH #206, flipped
Twine:  Decorative Trim - this can be found in the fabric/ribbon section of Hobby Lobby.  It comes on a ribbon spool, lots of colors, and is just the right thickness for our cards.  Great value.
Mini Brads:  Recollections
