YOU’RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Happy Sunday to all my blogging friends. I hope your weekend is going well and you are getting revived for the week to come.  I have been crafting, a lot, and have lots of cards to share.  This one is for Stamp School’s color challenge and of course will be going in my next Operation Write Home* box of cards. I used to wonder what I would do with all of the cards I make, but not any more! I have to work hard to get cards made fast enough to get them sent out.  I love making them for OWH though.  I really enjoy knowing my card will be used by one of our troops to touch bases with home.  And I know how terribly important those notes are.  If you have never made cards for OWH, why don’t  you pop over to their site and check it out?

At Stamp School, the color challenge is to make a card using Cotton Candy, Gumdrop Green and Limeade. Don’t you just love this color combo?  I just winged the layout; no sketch challenge for this baby!

I love this Verve sentiment, and because this is going to OWH I thought the sentiment very appropriate.  The hummingbird and flower are from my old stamp stash.
SSColor4
This border is from a Martha Stewart border punch. The ribbon flowers are from AC Moore.

I used a flat bow on this card as I am still trying to minimize bulk.

NOW FOR THE CHALLENGES:

I also made this card for:
Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge since this will be sent to our troops and will make it’s way home to a friend or loved one.
