AND THE WINNER IS..................

Wow what a turn out for the OWH BlogHop! I am so stinkin' impressed. I have decided that I will continue through midnight tonight to make a card for each comment posted. However, I have already gone to for them to decide a winner of the blog candy! I included posts through 12:01pm (MST) today and there were 91. After going to I put in my numbers and the random picked number was 43. CONGRATS TO ROBIN. I went to her blog and she is new and just started a blog. Robin has some cute cards so you should check out her blog and leave her some love. Maybe next year she will join us for the OWH Bloghop!!!

On another note, just wanted to say thank you to all that participated and that stopped by, not to mention, a HUGE THANK YOU to all who have served and are currently serving our great nation! Have a blessed Memorial Day!

If you arrived from Dixie, What's Next? you are in the right place! Today you will find a whole lot of amazing card makers and be sure to leave them a little love... when you leave a comment today from Saturday - Sunday at 11:59 pm on Sunday I will be creating one (1) card for OWH! PLUS I will be selecting one random comment to receive this YUU--UUU--MMYY blog candy!!

In March I was introduced to Operation Write Home and fell in love with what they are all about. I love making cards and often have cards that I do not know what to do with. I now have a purpose for those cards I create and I don't send. I love that I can use my creativity and be able to send it to others that greatly appreciate it. I am a granddaughter of a retired Naval Officer and a wife to an Airforce Veteran and want to express my grattitude to not only family, but also all of those that have served, are serving, and will serve our great country. Know that you are missed and appreciated! Every day in my mind, I think about those who sacrafice their time serving to protect our country. Everyday in my heart, I would like to thank those who have sacraficed their lives for it.

Now it's on to Gale, GEL-Oh for the rest of the fun!

If you get lost somewhere along the day you can always go back to the beginning OWH

Day 72, 71, and 70

Well I am finally caught up. I had major creative juices flowing on Saturday and tried to make a slide show for all of you. Didn't work. I guess I will need to get some training on how to post a slide show. Anyhow, I had a great time making this weeks cards; hope you all like them as much as I do!

Day 70 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday

All products used are CTMH except the wiggly eyes.

Day 71 ~ Do That Decade 1920's

This card is made mostly from CTMH products. The image is a vintage sticker I found in my collection of vintage materials
Day 72 ~ It Needs Something!

CTMH products were used to make this card. The purse sticker and the ribbon are from other vendors. Hope you like the cards!

Day 73 ~ Tri Colored

Day 73 ~ Tri- Colored

So here it is: Use an image (stamped or digi) on your card and only use 3 colors (and not different shades of those colors). Black and white are the exceptions to this rule.

Day 74 ~ Buttons And Bows

Day 74 Buttons and Bows 4 of each

Day 75 ~ Card Recipe!

4.25 x 5.5 card
2 patterned papers
1 piece of ribbon
stamped image (digi counts!)
stamped sentiment

Day 76 Challenge

Day 63 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday

Today's sketch was a little interesting for me. I was not sure my stand on the sketch but this what I came up with. I think it is a little on the simple side for my liking. All products are CTMH including the top coat and antiqued copper mini medley. Tell me what you think about the card!

Catch up Day!

Day 62~ Look Who's Talking
I sure like the new stamp sets that are in the new Summer Idea book for Close to My Heart . All products used on this card were CTMH except the fibers and the Black Glaze pen.

Day 61 ~ Circles 3 Ways
This card was fun to make and just like Day 62, I used CTMH products on the whole thing except a white souffle' pen. Gotta check out the new idea book it is great! The three circles in my card are the circles that are cut, sparkles, and polka dot paper. I guess you could count the cherries, but I considered it to be like the cut circles!

Day 60~ All That Glitters
Ok, again I used a new CTMH stamp set on this card. The three different colors of glitter that I used were Stickles-Waterfall, Lime Green, and Copper. Waterfall is on the tail of bird, Copper is used as an outline around the owl and around his eyes, and the Lime Green I used as an outline around the frog, his feet, eyelids, and his worts! I love the way the colors go with the paper (also new in the CTMH idea book)! Hope you like the cards as much as I did!
