Oldie Moldie Monday
Good Monday afternoon - it is Memorial Day - a day to remember our fallen soldiers and the sacrifices they made for our country.
I have three cards to share with you today. They are all for Operation Write Home. I used up the last pieces of this paper - the pieces that are left are going in the scrap bag. I got three cards left from the leftovers. It was not the paper I was going to use today for Oldie Moldie Monday - but they showed up on my table and were used. I have colored about 6 of these little robots - pretty easy to color so it made making the cards pretty fast.
I chalked the background of the robots in either green or blue so it wasn't so white. I even chalked the edges of some of the papers. Chalking gives a softer look than inking the edges does.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. Dig out some of your old paper or scraps and make some cards. See how creative you can be.
Everyone enjoy the remainder of your day. We have summer today in Wisconsin. Almost 90 degrees. The lawn is mowed, a little snooze was taken and I need to write out a couple bills and do a load of laundry. Maybe I can get some more cards made today.
