These cards are submitted for Operation Write Home's Virtual Card Making Party
Challenge 6 of the Operation Write Home's Virtual Card Making Party was to make a card based on this sketch:
Linda from Creepin' Along provided this challenge. I love my bird punch! I took this opportunity to use it and make these fabulous little birds for this card that hopefully one of our heroes will love to send to someone.
Challenge 7 from Scrapping with Purpose asked us to make a holiday card either for a child or to send to any hero. I made this card that I'll send to any hero!
Yes, I do know how to count (ha ha), but I had to skip a challenge that asked us to make a card that was sports-related. My kids are past the age of playing sports, and I have NO stamps or stickers that were sports-related. Sorry!
Challenge 9 from Sharing My Work for OWH challenged us to use a neglected tool. I used to use my spirelli punch all the time, but it's been in the back of a drawer for a couple years. I pulled it out and remembered why I don't use it a lot. I have to stand on it to make it punch! I still love the look of this card.
The 10th and final challenge for the Virtual Card Making Party was offered by Kathryn's Cards. Kathryn asked us to make a card that represents our state. I live in California and work at the University of California. I knew that my state colors were blue and gold. I looked up our other state symbols and found that the California state insect is the butterfly. (Who knew?!) I covered a piece of paper in blue and gold washi tape and die-cut this butterfly. I plan to send this card to any-hero too.
The party was fun, and I would like to thank everyone who hosted a challenge!
