Yeah - it is Sunday
Good afternoon - finally found some time to make a few cards. Come back tomorrow to see the other two cards I have already made. They will be my oldie moldie Monday cards.
There is a new challenge blog - CAS-ual Fridays - 2nd challenge is to use baker's twine and buttons and keep it simple. I struggle with simple so I think I did an OK job with this card. My twine is from Martha Stewart and the buttons are from my collection.
This card is for Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home has mailed 1 million cards overseas to heros to mail back home to their loved ones. Congrats to them - I am so proud to be a small pebble in this wonderful organization. One million cards means so many more millions of smiles. If you have some spare supplies (I know you do) and just a little time you could make some cards for Operation Write Home. Stop by their home page to see more about them. They also have a blog in which challenges are hosted each week - Sunday is a sketch, another challenge on Wednesday and usually a tutorial on Tuesday.
The paper from this card is from a very old 6 x 6 pad of Basic Grey paper that I am trying to use up. The stamp is a $1 stamp I think I bought at Michael's - I thought it had such wonderful simplicity but what opportunity for embellishment in the middle of that flower.
Everyone have a wonderful day - my body says it would like to have a little nap but I don't think it would be wise to listen.
