I love this little image from Taylored Expressions. I bought it about 2-3 years ago, and I am not going to lie, I often neglect it.. But it is so perfect for some love cards for OWH.

I purchased this thank you set a while back... like 4 years ago, and never used it until I moved here. As you can tell, I really like the color orange. I will eventually be making these in other solid colors... hopefully finding the patience to paper piece these.
Thank you cards are always in demand at OWH. Just a heads up!

Here is Sade's birthday card.
I love the little sprinkles I added to this card. I kind of wish I would have put a little glitter accent to it or even liquid applique to make some frosting. Maybe next year.
I love this paper.. Ive been hoarding it for quite some time now.

At the time of this card being made he was down roughly 6ish pounds that week. I figured why not make him a card to help motivate him! He claims he likes it... but it doesnt look like him... lol.

I used eyelets. I hated eyelets... probably because I dont know how to use them! lol. Makes sense right? on why we dont like certain things.
I do love this orange color. I made a bunch of different versions of this card for Operation Write Home.

I love this theme of a card. Its patriotic, yes. I love it that way. I love the bold sentiment, and It is very simple. I hope the few of these I made for Operation write home find good homes!

But I love the colors used for these Operation Write Home cards.
I love the sentiment of this.... I am, and so is my daughter, Sucker for Rain boots. Just how we are. They are quite fun... I have a pair of Orange retro floral patterned ones. I love them. Ive had them since I was in College.

I made this card originally for my daughter D.
This card was tooooo much fun to make, that I made a few for OWH.
Best choice Ive ever made. I think the Thinking of you sentiment went perfect in how the image was set on this piece of paper.
Not to mention, this little girl looks a lot like D. :)

I love using Rose's Portait for Operation Write Home cards.
This card was mass produced on some perfect paper for OWH. I am very happy with the way it turned out.
I wish I could hoard this paper forever. Its so pretty!

Here is another take on the Man's Ruin set... this time I didn't alter this image this time. So you get to see the Skull feature.
I hope to use this for a birthday card as well as the last one I featured yesterday.

Seems like I am on a roll lately with the Bombshell Stamps. I actually adore these ladies.. I was even apart of their design team many moons ago. I was in such a rough time in my life when I was apart of the group that I quickly neglected them. I miss this group, but my life has taken a different turn, and so... I must share my wealth of knowledge of this group with you... Passing on the tourch with telling you... They are having a Guest DT call. I say Guest, but in reality they are called... MONTHLY PIN UPS. I totally suggest if you're a crafter, and wanting to try it out to do so!!
I received this set during my time with these ladies. (one of the perks of being apart of the crew.)
I am not a fan of the skull that is on the glass, so I took one of the Roses from Roses Portrait and adorned it on there in replacement. It just so happens to be adhered with dimensional tape. I put glossy accents on the glass and on the bubbles. I am hopeing to use this for a upcoming March birthday!
Now... Heres the link to apply for Bombshell Stamps DT call. :) CLICK ME!!!!

I have a few really good friends who are in the physical fitness industry. I figured I would make one of them a card. This one is for Hot Mandy. Hot Mandy is a yoga instructor. You may have seen her name mentioned in a few posts back as well.
I used the MFT WTG set. The name of it is slipping my mind right now... but I love the sentiment on the front... Im bringing sexy back and on the inside its says.. I dont sweat, I glisten.
I love the shape of this card, and it fits in a standard business envelope which is nice!!! Since I try to save all my A2 envelopes for OWH.

I guess I am addicted to these little cuties!
I hope they make their way to some happy home!

I made this little card for Diem. I love to send her mail every week. I loved this little image, and I knew she would too. We talked about it on the phone one day and she told me she loves it when I make her cards. She says she also keeps them on her dresser at her dads house. Who knows... maybe one day, I will need to make a container for her to keep all her cards in it.

I love how it came out. I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz distress inks. I love how the water helped create the best Rasta effect. If you arent aware of the rastafarian colors they are RED YELLOW and GREEN. So I tried my best to incorporate that into my card.

Here is a wide variety of Anya cards I made for OWH. Mostly the blank/ Thinking of you, or even the basic thank you card.
You can see in a few of them, that they have "coffee/tea" sentiments. I think they are a perfect match up to the Latte Anya. Who I love... probably because of her little hat and how her hair wisps up.

Here is a birthday card that I made for Diem's uncle Tommy. He is married to her Aunt Jess. Both are very supportive of my crafty habit. I am so thankful to have them, and their 3 littles in our lives. Tommy is such a guys guy. So I figured I would make him a manly card with this Buck, and Tim Holtz paper.
Currently Tommy is going through a lot of cancer treatment at this time. Here is a article about Tommy. I cant believe its been a year since he was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer.
Please keep him and his family in your thoughts.

..I have been obsessed with this stamp since I saw it for the first time featured on a Sandy Allnock card. I knew I had to have it. Supposedly... I am supposed to be sharing it with my Mom... I don't think that is happening since I use it 100% more times than she does. I love this stamp. I use it a lot on my OWH cards, and for my personal use cards for people I don't see or talk to very often and I just want to check in on them. Got to love that its a HERO ARTS stamp, and I love it even more that its a MADE IN AMERICA PRODUCT. :)
