Winter Love You Cards

Hi! The new mid-month challenge at Operation Write Home is Winter Love You cards. I paper pieced part of this MFT Pure Innocence stamp, colored the rest with Copics, and set it against a wintry background from Authentique (Something for All Seasons):

The cold weather from the polar vortex is supposed to come East this week--brrrr! Not quite ready for it!

OWH Sketch challenge

I designed my card based on the new sketch at OWH Stars & Stamps Blog. I do like this patterned paper, and I thought it would be fun to use stars in non red, white & blue colors, but I always struggle with sketches that include strips!! Anyway I'm not that thrilled with this card, but it does make a nice general thank you card for a hero to send home.

Thanksgiving card for Pumpkin Patch challenge

I love pumpkins and fall images so I like Cards In Envy's new challenge: Pumpkin Patch! When I read the wonderful quote they posted from Henry David Thoreau, I knew I had to join in and play:

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, 
than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”~Henry David Thoreau
So I got out a favorite Pure Innocence by My Favorite Things clear stamp and made a Thanksgiving card.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a good weekend!

November ODBD challenge at OWH: Hearts

It's fun to make "heart" cards for OWH that are not specifically valentines, so they can be used by the troops at other times of the year. This is a little heart card I made for the challenge:
