Operation Write Home
I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home, which sends blank handmade cards to deployed servicemen and women. OWH is an amazing organization that ships thousands of cards each month to our nation's Heroes so they have something to write home on. Please check out the tag on the sidebar for more information on this inspiring mission. Please join me in supporting our men and women who sacrifice for us all.

I know I am not posting much lately but all this packing towards the unknown departure date is very hard. And I'm trying to sell off a bunch of stuff from the farm as well. (Ever tried to pack up a farm?) This whole horrible ordeal just really needs to have a light start to show up at the end of that tunnel.
I am glad to have made a least one card recently. I found the flower makings in a box of "forgotten" pre-cut items and the embossing is for the most recent SS dry embossing challenge.
I think I need a real long paper vacation! :)

I tried to make them for both male and female givers and receivers.

Last night I was reminded that I have not cut paper in awhile. I do know that cutting and creating is good for the spirit and attitude so here is one I really had fun making.
I cut the gears out of thin cardboard with the Big Kick and painted them with craft paint. I liked them so much I cut out a bunch to have for making more cards in the future.

Oh, it seems like forever since I posted anything. I got a bit down with all the struggles that seem to have no end. But! I did manage to get some cutting and pasting done. I also did some cutting and painting but that is for another post.
Here are my Love You and Thank You cards for this week. There are several of both themes.....
and this last one is trying to be different. Maybe it is a bit odd........ hm?

ODBD September challenge. The challenge was for me to make my own background. I do have to say a few words about it because it just wouldn't photograph right. The background is supposed to be a shabby chic weathered wood. The kraft base was run through the Big Kick with a wood type embossing folder and then roughly painted with blue, pink and silver. For some reason the blue really pops in the photos........ hm? and the lace is barely beige. Anyway the idea was for a shabby chic barn wood look.
