Here is another late-to-my-blog card–it is already on the way to OWH! And it is another kids’ love card for the OWH Midweek Throwdown from two weeks ago. I really enjoy making kids cards and I know it must be fun for our heroes to send cards home to their kids and young friends and relatives. I colored this hedgehog stamped image with Copic markers and layered it up with some nice contrasting colors. Thanks for stopping by.


Squirrely! Squirrely! Shake your bushy tail!

  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug “Woodgrain”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill and BoBunny

Squirrely! Squirrely! Shake your bushy tail! So this is a camp song that my son taught me. He’s pretty crazy for squirrels. This past summer, his first as a counselor, he chose his camp name to be “Chipmunk.” I colored this image with Copic markers and created a nice woodgrain textured background. The Memory Box acorn just seemed like a natural accessory for Squirrely. I created this card for my latest Operation Write Home (OWH) boxes, and I’m a little late (read: a LOT late!), but this is a card fitting for the OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge from the week before last: Love Cards for Kids. Thanks for visiting.


OWH Sketch #205 – Hello!

  • Stamps – from Lawn Fawn “Into the Woods” set
  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Happy Day”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I created this cheery card with Sketch #205 at Operation Write Home (OWH) Stars & Stamps. This would be a nice card for a child to receive from a hero, with the cute animal and bright colors! I still haven’t figured out if this is a raccoon, skunk or maybe a chipmunk! I’m thinking chipmunk! Any help there would be appreciated! Thanks for stopping by today.
