World Card Making Day Hop

Hi!

Happy World Card Making Day!!!! I hope you are ready for an awesome blog hop. Also please feel free to check out my blog candy giveaway. Hopefully you are feeling inspired to celebrate and make cards and also send them off to Operation Write Home, if you are in the USA, or a similar organization if you are out of the US.

The troops do so much for us the least we can do is to send them some of the cards we create.

Although, we may not be ready to think about Christmas. Right now is the time to think about shipping our homemade Christmas cards to the troops.

The blog hop participants were given 2 challenges:
  1. make a wintry card (holiday themed secular/religious, or other OWH-themes with a winter feel)
  2. use a sketch
This is the great sketch I found over at the OWH site

Stamps: CTMH Perfect Fit - Holidays Holiday, Bethlehem(retired)
Paper: CTMH Pear & Partridge Paper Packet
Ink: CTMH Chocolate
Accessories: Spellbinders Scalloped Circle
To continue on the hop please click this image below:


Happy Crafting,
M.E.

  8. Great card using one of my favorite OWH sketches! The kraft looks terrific with the pink and green and make a nice background for the Bethlehem stamp.
