Labor Day Weekend VCMP


Welcome to the Operation Write Home Labor Day Weekend Virtual Card Making Party!

I hope you can join me and the other hostesses as we bring some card challenges for you to make and show. You have until next Sunday, September 8th to add your card. Check out the OWH Blog: Stars and Stamps for links to the other blogs.

My 29th wedding anniversary is this weekend so my challenge to you is

Use Sketch #29 for a Love Card


I like to turn my cards horizontal so the hero can easily see the design


I think this card would be good for a man or woman to send home to their sweetie.


Love Cards are much more versatile since they can be sent anytime.

Supplies Used:
Market Square Paper ~Farm House Paper Co
Sizzle On Stamps ~Kelly Purkey {Simon Says Stamp}
Tuxedo Black Ink ~Memento

What's a Party without a Giveaway???
I have a little Basic Grey Soleil for one of the InLinkz participants
so you can replenish your supplies!

  1. That is so funny! Great minds think alike. I was thinking of just that same bacon saying and looking at bacon punch art this week. Great card.

    1. Thanks Lori,
      I think the bacon saying is funny & unexpected. When I use it for my family, I add "and I like bacon A Lot!"

  4. Wow, that's some serious LOVE! LOL. Who won't get a laugh from that one? I love, love, love the card and the sentiment! Especially since we stood in line for 45 minutes this week at the Farmer's Market, just to get some apple smoked bacon. :)

  5. LOL! What a fun card Annette! It makes a great masculine love card too. (Which are SO much harder than flowers and frills. This is a nice sketch choice too...adaptable to pretty much any design. Thanks so much for being a hostess in this weekend's VCMP too!
