Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home spring break blog-hop! If you got here from Sarah's simply scrapping page -Great! If not and if you'd like to see all the ideas and blog candy this hop has to offer please hop in order by starting at http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org
Below you will find my "spring card" which is based on Shirley's #8 sketch from this week's challenge at OWH-thanks so much Shirley I will definitely be using this template a lot! This card along with others pictured will eventually make its way into the hands of one of our deployed American Hero's for the purpose of writing home to a family member! I first began by adopting a soldier through www.adoptaussoldier.org, in November of 09 and quickly made it one of my favorite causes. Soon after I came to know of OWH through facebook connections. Though I had never made a card before I immediately loved the idea and decided to try it. I've dabbled in crafts from sculpey to acrylic painting and most everything in between but was never into the scrap-booking thing. So I've been making cards now for about 3 1/2 months and Hobby Lobby has replaced Wal-Mart as my favorite place to shop!
One interesting thing I find is that when I create a card I have to give it the overnight test. If I like it then I sleep on it...if I still like it in the morning I don't tear it apart and start over! LOL. Today I got my Cuttlebug albeit against my husbands wishes...lol. If you are new like me it won't take you but a few months and perhaps X amount of dollars wasted on other stuff to realize you NEED this contraption!
I hope you like my card and please leave a comment because I LOVE comments. I'm also new to blogging with just having gotten this blog up this week in time for the hop so I hope you will follow me or stop by again soon!
Now hop on over to Caro's blog... Scraps of time
