Hero Arts and Operation Write Home

I know it is my second post of the day but I wanted to get some challenges done and posted.  The first card is for the midweek challenge on Operation Write Home's Card blog - Stars and Stamps to do a thank you card.  I made a stop at Tuesday Morning and found some great collections of paper for $4.99.  They are both by Momenta.  Wonderful weight papers which are double sided in fun colors.  I also bought some packages of card stock.  Here is my thank you card - I used a Hero Arts stamp and die cut set for the flower and a sentiment from one of the sets Hero Arts created with Hero Arts.  A wonderful versatile set of sentiments.  I cut the background shape on my Silhouette.


My second card is made for the monthly challenge sponsored by Our Daily Bread Design - for every 25 cards - up to a maximum of 50 - they will pay shipping on a box of cards overseas to our heroes.  Thank you for your support.  The challenge this month is to make shaped cards.  I turned to my Silhouette to see what I could find for a shape and to also get it to be an A2 size.  I will have to find a way to be creative to add enough writing space on the inside for our heroes to send a note home.  Once again I used my Hero Arts stamp and die set and a different sentiment.  Hero Arts also has a challenge on their blog this month for "thinking of you cards" so I will post this one over there also.



Now I need to get busy and get some work done - I need to start mowing.  I had to pick up lots of sticks because of the wind last week so now I can start mowing.   Someone in the neighborhood needs to have a bonfire and burn all my sticks.  Enjoy your day.

Barb, I love the bright colors of this paper! What a great deal you found. The shape you used for the second card is good because it leaves a lot of space inside for writing. Mine turned out much smaller. I hope it's still okay to send in.

Fun cards. Love that big flower. I especially like how you used the same image and colors, yet each card looks so unique (and cute). Nice job!

Your second card for the ODB challenge is really cute and looks like a postage stamp. Very cute.
