Hi!  I have two cards to share with you today, so I’ll just cut the chitchat and get right to them.

First is a “mom” themed card I made for Operation Write Home.  I figured this sentiment would work for Mother’s Day or for any time one of our heroes wants to send a note to his or her mother.  I used OWH Stars and Stamps sketch #164 for the layout, but turned it on its side and added an extra panel for the sentiment. This is a great sketch for showing off some designer paper.


My second card is also for Operation Write Home.  This time I’m giving someone’s dad the opportunity to receive a card.  The layout started out as the CAS – Colours and Sketches challenge #16 layout, but I stretched it into a rectangle and turned it on its side.  This layout had me stumped for a while.  Finally I realized how closely this image stamp matches my washi tape and decided to combine them into a card.

So there they are – two more cards for the box I’m sending out to OWH early next week.  Remember, if you’re creating cards for OWH, the deadline for your shipper to receive Mother’s Day cards is March 31.  Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies for the Mom card:
Stamps: It’s Good to be Queen (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Cardstock: Poppy Parade, Whisper White (Stampin’ Up); designer paper from Nordic Holiday 6″ x 6″ paper pad
Ink: Poppy Parade (SU)
Other: half pearls (KaiserCraft)

Supplies for the Father’s Day card:
Stamps: All I Have Seen, All Year Cheer II (Stampin’ Up)
Cardstock: Mellow Moss, Basic Black (SU); Pure Luxury Ivory (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Mellow Moss (SU); Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Other: washi tape (We R Memory Keepers)

  1. Both your cards are fantastic! The Fathers’ Day card is my favourite, love that you rotated the sketch and that washi tape is great for a masculine card. Really, really love this one! Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours and Sketches

    PS do you know if you can support Operation Write Home from the UK or is it only for USA crafters?
