Our house

in the middle of the street. Our house...
Anybody remember that song? Now I can't get it out of my head!

This is the last of my cards for the OWH challenge. I finally finished all 27 of them and now I just have to get them packaged up and shipped off. What a great since of accomplishment! Oh and by the way, this looks nothing like our house. LOL!

Well, that's all for today folks. In the words of Tom Bodette, "We'll leave the lights on for you."

Any Hero Cards

As part of my ongoing quest to finish cards for the Operation Write Home make someone's day challenge, I came up with these two cards to include. They are called any hero cards and are to be given to any deployed soldier just to let them know we are thinking about them. I just love the way they turned out. I got the idea to do the camouflage card from this blog. This is such a great layout and I've made several cards using it. 15 cards down, 10 more to go!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and find some time to do something meaningful!

Thinking of You

Here's another one of my Operation Write Home cards. I've decided to take the challenge and send them 25 cards by May 10th. I'm half way there and having so much fun!

I hope where ever you are, you're having a ball!

Thanks for looking!

A little birdy told me...

...I spent entirely too much time on this card today. I knew I wanted to use the pp and this stamp set together, but it just didn't quite work out as spectacularly as I'd hoped. I think at the end I just sort of did what I did to be done and move on. Ever have cards like that? I do really love the color combo I'm just not that thrilled with the layout. Oh well. Time to move on.

Hope you're having a great day and thanks for looking!

Fuzzy Pink Poodle

Today is the last day of spring break and the weather is gloomy, rainy, windy...perfect for stamping! I do my best work when the weather is like this. In between working on Mom's day cards I've been trying to put some cards together for Operation Write Home. They only have a few restrictions on what you can send, but the big one is no glitter. I never realized how much I used glitter until I started making cards for them. I had a bunch ready to go and then I realized just about everyone of them had glitter in some form or another. Drat! So I've gone back to the drawing board and am working on a fresh batch of glitter free cards. I hope where ever you are, you are finding some time to be creative and maybe even do something charitable this month! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day.
