Back to Challenges and Fun!

Long Time No Cardmaking!

But I'm back to the craft room now! Now that tax season is over...I can have fun again!

I had a lovely day playing with paper and stamps, and have twelve cards done!

This was assembly line cardmaking...for a good cause...

Have you heard of Operation Write Home? If not, click on over to and read all about it, its a great program!

There is also a cardmaking challenge blog for the site and I participated in the color challenge that they posted just a bit ago.

The challenge was to use turquoise and brown, such pretty colors! I'm pleased with the way that these turned out...

I chose to make Father's Day cards and generic masculine cards, the only difference is that for the latter I left off the Happy Father's Day stamp...


Here is the inside...


Nothing fancy...but I managed to make 12 of them with the supplies that I had on hand! Ten will be shipped to OWH this week, two have been tucked away for the Dads in June.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Great use of the turquoise/brown color combo! I love the image and the sentiment is awesome. Glad you are back in the card-making business.

  2. Lovely card and great use of the color combination from this week's challenge. Terrific sentiment and image as well. hanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

  3. Great use of the colors. I also really like the way you distressed the image! I'm using brown stamped lighthouses tomorrow for the OWH Dad cards and that really finishes the image off well!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I appreciate each and every one. Have a lovely day, and thank you for stopping by!
