Operation Write Home- Finishing Strong

Many of you have heard the news; OWH is accepting cards until August 1, 2015 then will cease operation at the end of the year. This means our troops are home or will be soon and there will not be a demand for cards! See all the details at:

There will be the traditional Memorial Day Bloghop this coming Saturday so make sure to check out all the activity at OWH this weekend.

I have a few cards to share- the first is for the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge at OWH. The challenge for May is to use Embossing on your card. It can be either dry or wet embossing, or both.... I opted for both. I love the look of wet embossing and rarely do it- so this challenge helped motivate me to pull out my heat gun. My background panel is dry embossed and the sentiment is wet embossed.

The mid-month throwdown is to create  gal and guy cards with the same layout.  I had to position my focal image on the gal in a different place than the guy card...I used my patterned paper in different spots and I did not want to cover up the cute paper on the gal card.  The stamps are from the new release at My Favorite Things- so fun!!!

And here are a few more of my recent card creations. I continued to heat emboss a lot of the sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by,
