I will be updating this entry throughout the weekend. Operation Write Home is having a weekend of challenges and I will do as many as I can.
This is challenge #1 from Brenda . She challenged us to make cards using camouflage - one to send home and one to a hero. The left one is for a hero to send to his special someone. The sentiment reads "My hear is lost in yours". Not much to this card, the sentiment, the heart (above the "M", and a few teardrop dew drops. The card on the right is my any hero card - a note to a hero thanking him/her for their service. Not so much camouflage except b..ut it is kind of hard to read the "hero". I know, it's a stretch but I loved this paper when I saw it while looking for my camo paper.
This card is for challenge #3 at Tanya's blog (yes, I skipped challenge #2). I took this was literally - tie a yellow ribbon. The challenge was to use certain colors but I immediate thought about the yellow ribbon. I made this an AnyHero card.
If you have some time this weekend, join us. OWH is posting a new blogger's challenge every 2 hours throughout the weekend.
Challenge #4 from Carol is to make a card using a symbol of freedom that means that most to you. I chose to CASE this card from A Crooked Stamper's blog.
When I flew home from Germany (my stepdad was stationed there in the 80s), I remember seeing a giant flag flying at JFK and it brought tears to my eyes. I knew I was home.
Challenge #5, Holley challenged us to do vintage. When I think of vintage, I think of crochet flowers and lace. I need to go crochet two more flowers in pink to finish up these 4 cards!
This card is for challenge #6 - Marianne instructed us to use the moon in a card. I'm not so happy with the card but it does have a moon in it :)
This is for Challenge #8 - use the photo at Melanie's blog to inspire a card. This bench belongs on that porch or in the yard next to it! I was going to print her picture or use a picture of my house in the card but I'm out of ink in my printer - yikes!! I'll be running to Staples in the morning.
I'm going to try to keep up tomorrow but we'll see! Goodnight.
