I joined this amazing group on Facebook Called: Operation Write Home! And it's an amazing group, where people from all over the world can make cards that will be sent to the soldiers overseas!! The cards are made to be sent to the soldiers, but the cards are blank inside so that the Soldiers can send these handmade cards to their families!! Isn't that an awesome Idea!!!! I just love it!!! To be able to make cards for the soldiers, so that they can stay in touch with their families, and to be able to send gorgeous cards is such an awesome feeling!!!! It's the least we can do for our Hero's!!!
So here is my take on Sketch Challenge #13! This is my first time joining their challenges!! It was tons of fun!!
The glittery puff ball in the top corner is by Memory Box! I used a glue pen all over it and added some gorgeous glitter!!
I used my Slice Machine to cut out some cute letters! I wanted to make a simple "HELLO" card!
I inked up the edges of the letters with vintage photo ink, by tim holtz. Love this ink!!
I added some cute Prisma flowers to the bottom corner, and used my slice again for that cute brown swirly design! Love it!!
Thank you so much for looking!!!!

I'm so glad I got to play along this week!! I absolutely love this weeks sketch!!! I had tons of fun with it!! And I hope to make more!!!
I used this adorable garden shed stamp, by Great Impressions! They are an amazing company!
I colored it in with my copics, I didn't do such a great job, don't know why LOL. Was tired I guess. hehe.
I just love the black behind the image and Patterned paper! I used vintage photo ink around all the edges.
I used my Slice Machine to cut out some butterflys! I have been wanting to try out these adorable butterfly's with the pearls down the middle of them!! They are very popular right now!! And are soooo adorable!!!
Of course I added some prima flowers!!! I gotta use them up!!! LOL!!

WOOHOO!! I was able to play along this week!!! yay!!!
I Took Tracy's Idea about the Sentiment being the main image on the card!
My sister bought me this sentiment for my Birthday, and I haven't used it yet!! I just LOVE IT!!! It's so perfect for my family!!! hahah!!!
It's a simple card, I used my Nesties for the sentiment.
I added some buttons and Prima flowers! Gotta love em!!
I stamped a funky design on the bottom and covered it with pearls!
Thanks for looking!!
OMG!!!! I took the most amazing card class at my LSS yesterday!! The instructor introduced us to Micro Glitter!! Just when I thought Glitter couldn't get any more amazing!!!! LOL!!
We used these amazing "Peel Off's" Stickers! They are so pretty!! I will post the cards we made in class in a seperate post.
This card I made at home for my cousin who is graduating College!! Hooray!
I used this amazing stuff called "Be Creative Tape" This Tape comes in sheets, and you can cut it to any size or shape you want!! I love it!
Once you put it on your card to where you want it, you just pour the glitter all over it and BAM!! Glittered paper!!! LOL
There are endless possibilities with this Tape!!
Anywho! I covered the two flaps on the gate fold card with this tape, and glittered both of them with different colors! so pretty!
Then I peeled off the outline of a butterfly and colored it in with my water brush and Jelly roll pens!!! This is another amazing way to color images that we learned in the class!!!
We used the Metallic jelly roll pens, we colored a little bit onto a plastic surface, then used the water brush to mix it up a tiny bit and get the color onto your brush, then color part of the image. When it's all dry it has a gorgeous Metallic shine to it!
Thank you for reading all of this!!! LOL!!
I made a card for someone that had to put their dog down last week. I never really new the owners, but I walk by their house Monday through Friday's and their dog (A chocolate Lab) was almost always outside, and would come over and greet me and Phoebe. ( Phoebe is the dog I walk) She was the sweetest dog ever, and was always so happy to come and see us.
It was a shock to me that they had to put her down, I think she was 13 or 14. But she always seemed so happy and fairly healthy. So sad!
So I made up this little card for them and put it in their mailbox when I walked by.
The image is by Inky Antic's, I am so inlove with this company!!
I did a gate fold card! I am really in a Gate fold card kick right now!! LOL I love them!!
I added some adorable paw print paper, and used scallop circles around the image, and colored in the doggy with my copics. Luckily I had some paw print ribbon to add to it!
I stamped on the inside of it with my most favorite saying "Pets leave Paw prints on our hearts"
Thank you so much for looking!!!
