Operation Write Home Challenge
I am so psyched. I have finally finished 52 cards for Operation Write Home. I kinda dug myself into a hole when I decided to see how many times I could stamp a coffee cup on a sheet of white paper. That was my goal--to use them all. It was fun making the cards though because I used lots of scrap paper and an easy template. (If you don't know which card I mean, just go down a few posts and you'll find one of the coffee cup cards.) When I was going to OWH's website to get the address to send them to I found a tab that lead me to a challenge. Another simple template so the card you see above is for that challenge. Hey, it got me to make a card today.
Stamps: the house was from Happily Ever After (Unity July '10 KOTM) and the landscape scene was from A Little Happy (Unity May '10 KOTM)
Cardstock: Stampin Up
DP: tree (Journey pad by MAMBI), landscape paper piecing (Brenda Walton Olivia Rose for K&Co), pink background (Que Sera Sera by K&Co.)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento); Bordering Blue & Wild Wasabi (SU); Peach R32, Light Pink RV21 & Sand E33 (Copic)
Other: Foam dots (Ranger)
Frugal health tip #23: Dance for 3 minutes every hour that you craft. Okay, I'll explain. I was working on the OWH cards and I found it easier to stand rather than sit and I had my iPod on and I was listening to salsa music and suddenly I was moving with the beat. Try it! Every hour that you work, take a 3 min break and dance. You'll feel great!
