Labor Day

Hope you had a nice Labor Day weekend. I have been participating in some of the Operation Write Home Virtual Card Making Party activities.  One of the challenges from Cherie was to use 1 image, two patterned papers and three words. I really like the beady eyed images from Penny Black Stamps. I used some red & white twine for a chew toy instead of the rose that came with the stamp.

Another of the challenges by Shannon was to use a tool you have neglected lately.  Well, this worked nicely with this week's Hambo Hoedown Challenge where we had to use a torn element with Wee Henry Karate - digital image by Hambo Stamps. I tore around the embossed lanterns and used a Creative Memories rotary blade tool to get close to the Hi-ya!  AND it worked with another challenge by Cherie who asked us to make a sports themed card.

OWH also had a bonus sketch that I thought I would try. They are partnering with Lawn Fawn this week for their Birthday Bash.  I don't have any of their cute stamps or paper but maybe I'll be the giveaway winner!


  1. Thanks for playing along with our neglected craft tool challenge! I like the karate image with the sentiment! Too cute! I have a son named Henry so I like it even more!

  2. Those are such cute cards!! I am sure the soldiers will enjoy them all!
