More OWH Card Challenges

 I am still working on getting a box of cards ready to send out the first of next week to Operation Write Home.  As usual the Stars and Stamps blog is keeping us busy with lots of challenges and ideas.

The following cards use paper and sentiments form an all-in-one Paper-craft Kit from Cloud9 Design along with paper from the Recollections All Seasons Paper Pad.  The red ribbon is also from the Paper-craft Kit.  I wish there was more of it because the bow worked out so well with it.  The white ribbon is Sheerly Yours by Offray and has been my go to ribbon lately.  I will definitely need to stock up on this as it seems to go with most anything.  I also like that it is light weight and not bulky.

This one is for the try something round on your card challenge.  It is being sponsored by Robin's Fetish Digital Stamps and More.  Head on over there and take a look.  There are a lot of great items and ideas.  Currently they have a Fall Sale going on with 35% off until September 30th.  So hurry on over there and don't miss a chance at a  great bargain. 

Since I am trying to add some Christmas Cards to the box going out next week, I chose to do another Christmas card.  This one is for the challenge hosted by Michelle's Scrapbooking and more in honor of OWH.  The theme is anything you like and ends Sept 27th.  This is a great site with a lot of amazing items, ideas and challenges. 

This next card is for the Birthday Bash - Case Charlsie S., Napa CA.  Make sure to stop by and see all the wonderful cards she has shared.  My favorite part of this card is the ribbon.  For being so small it looks so luxurious.  The fork method was used.  You can find many tutorials on line.  Here is one on the OWH website.  It is super easy once you get the hang of it.   

This last card is for the  “Sweet Treats” theme challenge at the Stars & Stamps blog.  The digital image is from Sliekje's Digi Stamps.  She has so many cute images and is a wonderful artist.  Go ahead and take a look.  Please make sure to leave a comment, if you download a stamp, and to follow her terms of use.  I printed the image on water color paper and then used colored pencils.  I was able to get 6 images on the page.  Cut to size they are easily stored in a index card file for later use.  The die cut is by My Minds Eye.  I am not sure about the flowered paper and card stock as I pulled it out of my scrap pile.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look.  Have a wonderful day!
