Oldie Moldie Monday



Good Monday Morning - two day work week - yeah - love weeks like that - of course I have lots to get done.  Will spend Thanksgiving with my Mom this year - we will go to my sister's - it will be wonderful meal - she is a good cook. 

Oh and it is Oldie Moldie Monday - dug out some oldier Basic Grey for these two cards.

My cards today are for Operation Write Home - time to work on those Valentine/Love cards - and Archway Cookies has a challenge going - if OWH gets 5000 love cards contributed by a certain date (don't remember it off the top of my head) - they will donate that number of boxes of cookies (I believe it is boxes - not cookies).  I have a goal of 20 cards - this time of year - that is a big goal - I don't even have my own holiday cards done yet.

I have several challenges for thse cards - the first challenge is the sketch on OWH's Stars and Stamps.  The second challenge is from the Stampendous Blog - go use chipboard.  I did use chipboard - I stamped the heart on chipboard, colored with Copics and cut out.  I colored the edges of the chipboard and then pop dotted it over the hearton the stamped image.  There is also a challenge on Stars and Stamps where a stamp company will help cover the cost of mailing a box of cards - so hopefully we get enough challenges done that they will cover the cost of mailing several boxes.

This image always makes me smile - I can not resist making one of the cards upside down.  I actually don't know which direction is correct so maybe I am just covering all my options.  (Insert smile here)
