Birthday Cards

I wanted to make my step-daughter a birthday card and when I saw the spinner tutorial I was inspired. I followed the directions on OWH's stars and stamps blog and with a trial or two finally got it right. I then did a pop-up on the inside. I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I will definitely be using this technique again.

Go check out our partnership with Archway cookies - and help us meet the challenge!
Special Mission!!!


Archway Cookies loves heroes like we do. And they want to partner with OWH to get some sweets out to our service members for the well as generate LOTS of valentines for them to write home on!


1.Make your best valentines. We need 4,000 valentines for this mission, but we have lots of you to do it - so take your time, use quality supplies, and pour tons of love into them! Remember that this card will carry home tons of love from a hero so far from home, so it needs to be a beautiful, sturdy, and loving creation! Be sure to stamp/label the back with "Operation Write Home", use no glitter, and make them A2 sized cards. More guidelines are here.

2.Send your valentines to one of our shippers by Dec 1st. (You may also send other card themes!) Be sure to include a packing slip, and write ARCHWAY on it!

3.Archway Cookies matches us sweets for sweets - they'll send cases and cases to our OWH contacts to enjoy for the Christmas holidays!

We need to act fast to get all this done and shipped to our heroes in time for Christmas celebrations in Iraq and Afghanistan and other locations, so join in and help us achieve our special mission!!

Leave some love for Archway in comments on this post...let them know what you think of their generous gift to our heroes!!

Christmas kits

I decided to create some cards kits. That way when I have a few hours during the week I can get some Christmas cards finished. I ended up having a lot of fun and this is how they turned out.

These are the kits that I am currently working on. This is a great way to get some work done while watching TV or for those last night sessions. Everything is ready to go and no hassel with design or cutting things out.
