OPERATION WRITE HOME CELEBRATES WORLD CARD MAKING DAY

Hello blog friends....big day....WORLD CARD MAKING DAY....celebrating with OPERATION WRITE HOME BLOG HOP! 

LINK HERE
Thanking our heros for all they do. 

I chose to make one card for any hero and another card for a hero to send home.  (I'll make others but these are the ones I'm showing you for the hop). 

I followed this sketch #143 for the card I made for any hero

 



 
For the second card I used a sketch #B12 from the Bonus list

 
 


 
 Keep hopping....there are some great blogs and loads of inspiration!!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I made a card first using that top sketch, but was truly unimpressed, so I switched to a different sketch. But I have to say, your card is sooooo much cuter than mine was. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

I love your cards! They both have such bright colors and I love the thin stripes and tiny stars on the first card.

Debbie McNamee said...

Both these cards are so cute! I love how you did the diagonals on the first one!

JoAnn Ross said...

They're both wonderful and I really like your paper choices and the way you changed up the ink colors on the first sentiment! Your first sketch is one of my faves; I almost used it for mine, then went with one that I belatedly realized wasn't actually a real sketch card. Oops.

Diane said...

Great cards Cheri. I love the first one with the horizontal stripes. I haven't tried that sketch yet...but it's a great one to use up scraps...and I love that! thanks for joining the hop today.

Misty said...

Great cards! And now I have an idea how to use the stash of tags I have.

Awesome cards my friend! I love how the first sketch lends itself to using up scraps....I might have a few (LOL) and the second card uses one of my favorite things these days...banner flags!

Another great sketch to use scraps, love to use those up! Somehow they still multiply though. Great cards for our Heroes. OWH rocks, thanks for supporting it.

Your first card is such a great way to use up those scraps that I inevitably end up with!!

Super work! Your first card is a great take on what I thought was a challenging sketch. Nice papers and the sentiment going al the way across work really well. Glad you were able to join in the hop. Thanks for supporting OWH!

I like the diagonal stripes on the first one and the choice of papers on the second.

Dixie Cochran said...

I like how you've made the sentiment the focal point on your cards. These are terrific!

Elizabeth Campau said...

Love the striped patterns of the paper! Very fun!

Your first card makes we want to try that sketch, I skipped it as it was too hard! I like the thank yous in there! Love the tag on the second card, makes a great look.

These are both darling, Cheri! Fantastic paper choices and I love those little hearts in the second card. Happy WCMD!

While I like both cards, I especially like the way you used sketch 143. Stamping thanks across one of the diagonals was a great idea!
