Operation Write Home - Challenges 1 and 2

These two cards are for the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party - Challenges 1 and 2

This fun triple-stamped card is for the first challenge by Angie who asked us to create a card with a Scripture verse or an uplifting quote or sentiment. My quote says, "Remember Life's Treasures are People, not Things." In thinking about all of the men and women serving our country in the military, I think it is true that they are America's treasures.

 My dear husband honorably served in the U.S. Marine Corp for two terms....once a Marine, always a Marine.

The second challenge from Cherie's Corner of the world gave us a recipe to use an image, patterned paper, and words. This card made with Stampin' Ups double-stamped flower and "thinking of you" sentiment fits that bill.

Off to see what other challenges Operation Write Home has in store.

Craftily yours,
