Operation Write Home Bunny Hop Bloghop!
Hello! I'm Sherry Hickey, I live in Arlington, Virginia, and I'm happy to welcome you to my blog, Bits of Cheer! Isn't it a great day for the OWH Bunny Hop? You arrived here from Sherrie's Impressionable Arts blog; if you're just visiting or want to start over, go to www.owhstarsand stamps.org.
My photos may not be in the order I wanted them to be; I haven't figured out how to do that yet, lol.
I made two cards for today. I love the little bear with her Easter bonnet! I've had the digi for quite awhile and I'm not sure where I got it; there is a tiny signature on the digi that looks like "Dell". If anyone recognizes it, let me know. I colored the digi with Prismacolor pencils. I picked up the "Happy Easter" rubber stamp in the $1 bin at Michael's. I really like the banner.
My "Think Spring" card is made with Bo Bunny and K&Co. papers. The butterfly is a rubber stamp called "Wonderland Butterfly" by Memory Box.
I hope you'll scroll down on my blog and check out other cards I've made for OWH. I started making cards in June 2010.
OWH has a great website; Sandy, OWH president, and her team keep the website current and full of news and challenges. One of my favorites at the website is the Resources page, which has an archive of all the OWH sketches and tutorials. I quickly learned when I started making cards that I need a sketch to guide me, so I often refer to the OWH Resources page. Here is a link: http://www.operationwritehome.org/resources.html.
Just a reminder of important deadlines for OWH cardmakers. Easter cards are due at your shippers by March 18; Mother's Day cards are due by March 31!
Blog Candy alert, woo hoo! I'll draw one random winner from comments left at my blog during the hop. I'm giving away a signed copy of my children's book, "Card Auntie's Wonderful Workshop", which I wrote and illustrated. It's the story of a cardmaker! I'm also giving away a little grab bag of crafty goodies. Be sure to leave me your email address so I can contact you; in order to protect you from spammers, type your email address this way: my name at aol dot com.
I hope you sign on to Follow my blog so we can keep in touch! Have fun today as you let your fingers do the hopping! Three cheers for Operation Write Home and our heroes!
