Card Positoning Systems, Operation Write Home meet Oldie Moldie Monday

My first card for Oldie Moldie Monday (I really am getting sick of this paper - but it has made some great cards - so I will keep using it up) - was for a challenge on the Penny Black blog to do mini cards - this card is 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 - I think.  The white is embossed with a cuddlebug embossing folder and the sentiment is embossed with white Hero Arts embossing powder (fine detail).  The stamp is from Penny Black - you will see the entire stamp on a card below.

Here is the full version of the Penny Black stamp.  Isn't he just the cutest little snowman.  I found another version of him - that one is holding some presents.  The sentiment is also from Penny Black.

This card is based on the sketch from Card Positioning Systems.  I am also going to enter it in CAS-UAL Friday where the challenge is to use embossing - all three cards would qualify for that challenge.  On this card - I used an SRM Sticker for the sentiment.  Here is the sketch from CPS - I just moved the circle element up so I could add a sentiment below.  The penguin is from Whipper Snapper Designs.

The last two cards will go into my next Operation Write Home box.  These two cards will bring smiles to many people.  I sure hope they like purple and bright pink.  Pop over - we are having a month long birthday celebration - lots of fun.

Gee maybe next Monday - I could make another card out of this paper.  I made three of the mini cards for holiday cards - so I do need to line them but that won't take too much paper.

Enjoy your Monday.


  1. Such pretty cards! Love that snowman stamp and how you highlighted just a part of it in the first card. You have a way of making great non traditional holiday cards!

  2. You really added your own special touches to these cards! They are super cute! Thanks for sharing your creativity at CAS-ual Fridays! :)

  3. So stinkin' cute! I love that you use up your stash . . . I could learn a thing or two from you, I fear. LOL Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays - we're so glad you did!!

  4. Great take on the sketch - I'd love for you to link up at 52 Card Pickup!

  5. I love the colors you used for winter cards and such a neat use of that CPS sketch too.
