Operations Write Home Cards

Well, I finished all my OWH cards and have them ready to mail. I ended up making 25 and only 3 of them were duplicate designs. Don't worry, I am not going to try to show all of them. LOL

Here are a few of my favorites:
The bird is one of my die cuts. I inked it with Peeled Paint adf stamped the SU flourish with Chipped Sapphire.The Swirly Vine is one of Penny Duncan's files.

This card was made with Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue papers. I added one of Penny's Hibiscus files that I inked with Wild Honey.

This was made from my own files. I used a Lattice Edged Mat and Pretty Flowers and leaves. It is simple, but I like it.

I have been making 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 cards for so long now it was challenging to go back to A2 sized cards. It was good practice though. The other challenge was not making bulky flowers like I usually do. I wanted to stick with designs that would be easy to mail. The funny thing was that I don't use a whole lot of glitter, but once I knew I could not use any, glitter was the one thing that kept popping in my head. LOL

Hope you get inspired to make some cards for OWH to send to our heroes. :)
