OWH Blog Hop

Happy Saturday and happy World Card Making Day!  Today I will actually be at home and hope to find some challenges on the net to play along with.  

Today's share is a simple (for me) card that I created for Operation Write Home Blog Hop that is happening today.  We were to pick one of the OWH Sketches so I picked lucky #77 to work with.   You can click on the banner to be taken to a loooong list of people who are playing along.  Be sure to stop by and check them out, there will be a ton of inspiration for you.




By the way, somewhere I totally missed that this was supposed to be winter/holiday themed.  Oops!  I hope you will enjoy my "miss you" card just the same.  :)


I used two awesome sets from Paper Smooches for this card.  I have to tell you, I think the PS whimsical style is adorable and it just sings to my heart.  I used Chubby Chums and Sentiment Sampler.  The words "miss you" come from the Sentiment Sampler set and the bird is from the Chubby Chums set.  I colored her with some Tombow Dual Brush Pens and the Tombow Blender pen. The print cardstocks are from the October Afternoon Farm Fresh collection, an older collection but still one of my favorites.  For Operation Write Home you can't send cards with glitter, so I added some red Sakura Stardust pen to the bottom of Chickie's feet for a little sparkle without the worry of glitter. After all, after she reaches her destination at one of our oh so amazing military bases, she will then be sent home to someone's special chickie and I thought it only fitting that she was outfitted in her best Christian Louboutin shoes, you know the shoes famous for their red soles :)  Besides her little feet look like hearts so red was only fitting.

I won't keep you, but be sure to click on the Operation Write Home banner above and check out what the other hoppers have to share.

have a blessed day,

It's a cute card! Love the image and the yellow! I made 3 cards for the hop. LOL. 1) A Christmas card but then I thought it was supposed to be winter only. 2) A winter card but forgot to use a sketch and finally 3) the winter card with a sketch that I posted. Ha, ha.
