Since it's been such a sweltering summer in these parts, I've been hibernating with my A/C going full blast. Have lots to keep me from going stir-crazy, not only with my painting, but also devoting evenings to making cards for our heroes and sending them to an Operation Write Home (OWH) shipper to forward on to one of the military units.
This month of September already has been quite a busy one, especially with the big Birthday Bash going on at OWH during the entire month. There are daily challenges for cards to create for our heroes, with many prizes being offered if the cards are published in a blog and linked to OWH or one of the many sponsors. This is all so new to me, but I want to join the party with at least a few of the challenges. So, I'll start by showing you the one I created for the Stamps R Us challenge for a child's birthday card using Elizabeth Dulimba's cute digital stamp of a birthday bear.
here that will lead you through the process of making a simple card. Who knows, you might enjoy trying this, and join the rest of us crafters for this wonderful cause.
I did manage to meet another challenge for the Mid-Week Throwdown to create a happy Halloween card, and here's what I came up with. This little owl is a Studio G clear stamp.
Last but not least, I also met the Family Challenge by Ciara, the OWH mascot. My talented daughter, Sandy, did some great sketches of Ciara for digital stamps that were free for use in making cards for OWH, and I used this cute one of Ciara sitting beside her snow buddy.
I think that's about all for now, but I'm on a roll here this weekend, and hope to meet a few more challenges that I'll post later. Am so glad we have until the end of the month to keep creating lots of cards for our heroes.
Thanks for stopping by today, and hope you'll return again to see more in my little corner studio.
P.S. Forgot to mention when I wrote the above, that my thoughts and prayers were with all that were affected by the 9/11 disaster. We should never forget those that were lost to us and the heroes that resulted from it. May the Lord bless them all.
