Favorite Operation Write Home Cards for 2011

I love the contrast of the red doily and the new Hero Arts clock stamp.


I think I must like hearts for my OWH cards - I love this vintage image - and I made a card that was somewhat similar that was published this last year in Paper Crafts Stamping Issue


Of cours this card made the cut (more hearts) but it won on Scrapbooks Etc and OWH got a $500 donation for it.


I just love this birdie and all the bright happy colors.


I love the simplicity of this card - this is my type of CAS style.


This card was in the October Issue of Crafts 'n Things when I nominated Opeation Write Home for crafting for a cause.


I just love the colors on this and the image is a sticker - how easy.


My first love (no not Santa) - using just paper on a card - no stamping.


I lovethe simplicity of this card - CAS style getting better and chevrons are the "in thing" this year paper crafting - plus that new clock stamp from Hero Arts


I have to share a favorite masculine card - love the embossing in the background and the simple stamped image of the golfer.


There are my favorite cards for the year.  What do you think?

Thank you for all you did for OWH in 2011. I love the style of all these cards. I just may need to case them all!

Yolanda said...

Fantastic cards! I love the snowman with the bright colors. The my type card is great because everything on it supports the sentiment (it looks great too). Your star card is fantastic too for how the embossed stars are shaded.

Elsie said...

I love these cards and notice that nearly all of them feature a circle or rounded element to catch the eye. These are inspiing me to branch out in how I choose and arrange the elements on my cards. Thank you!
