Lots of Love

Greetings! I had a wonderful time scrapping, eating, laughing and making cards at the Celebrate Memories Crop at Whispering Pines. It is so nice to see wonderful people I have met over the years at the crop!

I have a few cards to share today. 
My Favorite Things posted another sketch last Wednesday:
                                 

How can you resist a cute image like this gal?

Operation Write Home posted the Sunday Sketch- we are up to #197! 
                                          197

I colored this sweet image over the weekend and used papers from a fall DCWV 6x6 pad that was on sale at JoAnn Fabrics for $2! I could not walk away from it! I like the rich colors- and I lots of the papers can be used all year round. I rotated the sketch so my image would fit.






And we have our monthly Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for November.... we are making Valentine or Love cards. I used my Cricut to cut some frames, hearts and a few sentiments. I love red. black and white together--can be for a guy or a gal! I made a few cards...same paper pad and similar but just different enough to hold my interest....I tend to make 1 or 2 of a kind- once in a while I will make 6-8 of the same card. I admire people who can make multiples all the time- I imagine they are more productive than I am!
 

Did I tell you about my big DOH moment? When I pack my cards for OWH I usually throw in $5 or $10 to help with the shipping costs- it really depends on what I have for cash- I tend not to carry cash (and I tend to not write checks either- love on line banking!). Did you ever notice the DONATE tab on the top right of the blog page at OWH? I guess it has been there a while and it is something I see but my brain did not process it! It just dawned on me-- I can donate ANY time- I do not have to wait to add it to my card shipment...and I do not need cash on hand!! I also feel like my amount of my donation is not dependent on what I have in my wallet so I can be a little more generous! Go look and use the donate tab-easy and via paypal! Go ahead- make a donation today!                      http://operationwritehome.org/blog/ 

Have a wonderful week and please find time this holiday season to craft on!
Thanks for stopping by!
