Welcome! I used a little Hampton Arts wood-mounted stamp and colored the bunnies like Peeps. I had just this scrap of ribbon left, enough to make a tiny bow. I thought a hero's child would like the multi-colored bunnies!
The Hambo Hoedown challenge this week is to make a round card with swirls and spirals on it. This challenge was inspired by Hambo's new digi, Plate-Spinner. I decided to make an easel round card, which I'd never tried before.

I loved the new Hambo "Refrigerator" digi as soon as I saw it. It was a freebie to all who danced in the Hambo Hoedown last week, but you can purchase it at Hambo Stamps. Each time I travel anywhere, I try to buy a magnet; they all end up on my fridge door:

Hello! The Midweek Throwdown at OWH is to use green. I used the cute "Cafe Lizzie" digi by Whimsie Doodles; the sentiment is a wood-mounted rubber stamp from Judith. I colored with Copics and stampd the tiny daisy onto the coffee cup because it needed something and I didn't have any words that tiny! DP is MME Lost & Found "Breeze" 6x6.

I was tickled to see that Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating, has started a new digi series called "Raggie Babies". I have always loved Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls. I used Nikki's pre-colored version of her first digi in the series. I followed OWH Sketch 155, altho I had to put my ribbon lower down on the card.

Sandy Allnock, president of Operation Write Home, just announced that OWH hit TWO MILLION CARDS! That's two million handmade cards shipped to our troops deployed in combat zones for them to write home on! Sandy made the announcement along with this fantastic new song and touching slideshow! Wow! Way to go, Sandy and OWH'ers everywhere! I can't even really wrap my brain around a number as huge as two million! I think of all the hard work it took Sandy and our shippers to prepare, sort, pack and ship that many cards. They are my heroes, too! I celebrated by making a card with one of my favorite MelonHeadz digis of a soldier bear. There's no sentiment, so I'm posting it for the Midweek Throwdown Challenge:
