Huge Giveaway- check this out!

I found this giveaway through a Facebook posting of a good friend and fellow card maker.   :)  She used Elmer products to create a super cute wall hanging for her craft area.  I need to use that as inspiration to create something bright and cheery for my craft area.  Check out her blog if you get a chance.  She's got some great layouts- might even motivate me to start scrapbooking...

I haven't had much time for card making lately.  I am working on a quilt for a special lady who is getting married next month...  I have to have it done in time to have my mom help me with the binding- for some reason I haven't been able to get that down yet.  Hopefully having someone show me will make it click...  :)  Pictures of the quilt to come after the wedding...

Operation Write Home Stars and Stripes blog Challenge #34

  The Operation Write Home Stars and Stripes blog has a sketch challenge going on right now to make a Thank You card with the following sketch and the color yellow:

Here is my take on the design- I actually have 2, but I think I like the first one better:

Thanks for checking out my cards...  Please leave comments- I love advise and constructive criticism.

Operation Write Home day and 2 birthday cards

My bible study group got together this weekend for our Operation Write Home day- and we came away with 73 cards!  I whipped out a few cards today and raided my stash of completed cards and have a total of 92 cards to send in.  I'm going to try to get a few more done this week so I can send an even 100. 

This is our haul from our card making day, not including duplicates or the ones I took from my stash:
Thinking of You
Just Because
These are the ones that I finished up today- I found some great love/anniversary stickers, so that is the theme for these.

That's it for the Operation Write Home for now- I think I captured all of the cards, but may have missed a few. I'm pretty excited about what we did and look forward to having an opportunity to do this again.

I made these cards for my sisters for their birthdays.  I've been looking for a way to use these fabric flowers and I think these turned out cute...
