Card Challenge

I am going to try to make lots of cards for Operation Write Home this year. They send hand made cards to soldiers so that the soldiers have cards to send home to their families. The soldiers and their families sacrifice so much for our freedom, the least I can do is pray for them and provide them with nice cards for their families. My friend Tina introduced me to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Blog. Hazel encourages us to keep our Christmas scrapping supplies out all year long and presents a new Christmas Card Challenge each week. This should really help me with continuing to make cards for Operation Write Home. This week I used a sketch and products from My Minds Eye Card Challenge 19 to make my Christmas card.

Sketch by Anam Stubbington for My Minds Eye
Paper: My Minds Eye Bohemia Bungalow Tiny Dots on Basic Kraft
Star Die Cut: My Minds Eye Laundry Line My Boy
Font: Santa's Sleigh
Distress Ink: Tim Holtz Vintage Photo
Paper lace made using Fiskars punch
Pearls: Recollections


Thanks for looking!
