Operation Write Home and World Card Making Day- WAHOOOO!

Hello- welcome to my blog! If you found me through Operation Write Home- are you excited about all of the wonderful cards that are being shared today and then shared with our heroes? 
        WCDstart

Today we are making Thank You cards based on an Operation Write Home Sketch. I chose sketch #77.

I used a 'Thanks' die from Paper Smooches, Stacking Stars die from My Favorite Things, shimmery, safe glittery paper and metallic silver paper from DCWV, circle dies from Spellbinders and paper scraps and gems from my stash. I popped the middle star slightly for a little bit of dimension. Not a stamp or Copic in sight! This would be a great card to make multiples- as discussed in the Midweek Throwdown on 10/2/13... it went together quickly and would be perfect for a new card maker to assemble!

I am not going to keep you- keep hopping along and seeing all the cards from the OWH cardmakers and the many people who are posting at the WCMD site! Don't forget to visit the gals at Drunkenstampers.wordpress.com for this week's out of this world challenge!
And get your Christmas cards into Sandy soon...my goal is to make more Christmas cards this week and get my package in the mail to meet the early deadline of October 15th. So go get crafty and make some cards for our troops to send home!
Thanks for stopping by and craft on!
Diane
