Operation Write Home Sketch #83

At Operation Write Home they are having a great challenge. Here is the sketch..... It is another great sketch, that can get you to use up your scraps.  This is a card made with all Stampin' Up! products.

Love how with Stampin' Up! all the colors match.  So I know what solid colors will match perfectly with the Desinger Series Papers.  They are on sale this month Buy 3 get one free.....I'm stocking up but shhhhh don't tell hubby.

Today I also made this card for my Granny.   On the inside it says "thinking of you" just like the first photo.  I try to send her a card every couple of weeks.  Having fun in Okinawa, Japan but missing loved ones.

Thanks for stopping by,  have a great crafty day!!!

Operation Write Home MWT

The challenge at OWH is a great one this week. Having so much fun and feel that I am growing as a paper crafter due to this Awesome Challenges....... Lovening these inchies!!!!   The postage stamp punch is from Stampin' Up! So is the 24-7 stamp set Pretty Postage.   I cased this card from a fellow demo on Stampin Connection.  The paper was from my scrap stash...great way to use it up.

This "thanks" card is allllll Stampin' Up!!!! I'm always so happy when I can do that, as you know.  The colors of the ink are the NEW in colors from the new catalog.
calypso coral
wisteria wonder
lucky limeade (makes me miss Sonic)
The base of the card is pool party.
                                          Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!!

Operation Write Home Sketch #82

Here is my take on the sketch over at OWH.  I love the colors on this  paper it is CTMH that I have had a while.   The cards didn't take anytime to put together.  So I have more in the works tweaked just a little of course :)  

It is a short one today.  Hope you all have a great day

I'm back with an OWH Challenge

I have been away for a little while.  Had some dear friends come  to Okinawa and show us the island. Had so much fun finding new places to EAT :)

This week's challenge at OWH was a "thinking of you" card.  I have been working on these so it worked out perfectly.  I was thinking that I would be able to go back and work on all the challenges that I have missed the last couple of weeks.  Here is a dog card that was a challenge!

This stamp is so old that it has marker scribbles on it from my soon to be *teenage* son. 

I am slowly trying to build up my Stampin' Up! stash so that all the projects I post are SU exclusive.  But I have been hoarding,  I mean collecting paper crafting supplies for years.  Now that I am in Okinawa and can't run to my local Michael's or (missing them for far to long) Hobby Lobby.  I am loving that I found Stampin' Up!

Hope everyone is having a GREAT crafting  day!!
