Operation Write Home ~ Virtual Card Making Party

I love a good challenge and was so excited to learn about the card making party at OWH this weekend. It's 2 days worth of challenges creating cards for our Heros to write home to their family and friends.

Day 1 ~ March 4, 2013
Challenge #1 ~ Create Miss You cards
The green paper is from The Paper Studio 180 Paper Pack and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Right at Home stamp set. The fish is from the Frances Meyer Mountain Scene sticker set.

Challenge #2 ~ Create a Kid's card using the sketch provided

The papers are from Recollections Bold Basics and DCWV Cafe' Mediterranean. You can find this cute little guy here. 

There are soooo many OWH tutorials you can check out here. I chose the easel card because I wanted it to be extra special. These instructions were super easy to follow.
The sentiment is from Broken Box Stock. The image is from Creative Reflections but it said the blog had been removed. You can find it on my Pinterest board.

 Challenge #4 ~ Create a card based on a scrapbook layout sketch
This was another tough one considering that scrapbook layouts usually require a 12 x 12 sheet of paper. An A2 card is only 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 so improvising is definitely necessary lol.
 The papers are from the Bo Bunny Camp-a-lot Collection. The dies cuts are Spellbinders Standard Circles and Classic Scalloped Squares Large. This blog had also been removed but you can find the image here.

Stay tuned for Day 2 of the OWH Virtual Card Making Party!  If you aren't familiar with Operation Write Home and would like to play along, please see the guidelines here. 


  1. These are all so awesome! You know what, I am also so impressed by the photos of your cards. I have studied and practiced and tried really hard, but I still struggle with getting good photos of my cards. You're an inspiration! Thanks for sharing! I'm glad you played along with the card from a scrapbook - style challenge. :)

  2. This is a nice group of cards but the laughing croc is my favorite! Talk about cute!! Some heroes kid is going to cherish this card. You did a great job coordinating papers and coloring him too. Thanks for joining in on my VCMP challenge.


Thank you for stopping by ~ Hope you have a crafty day :-)
