Hi sweeties! Boy oh boy are we busy at OWH this week or what? LOL This is a lot of fun but I cannot keep up if I give all the details I normally do, so for now, I will leave out my usual instructions. If you have a question about anything, just let me know!

This is my first post for today. My second one is located here.

For those who don’t know, Operation Write Home’s Stars and Stamps blog is having a “Virtual Card Making Party” all week long!!!!!  Two challenges every night for the week with sweets to be given away at the end of the week. If you have not checked out OWH, please, please do!  What is their mission you ask? Well here it is: “Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.” Now I don’t know about you but to me, this is really important because my son is leaving for Basic Training on March 5th. That just gives me more incentive to be involved, but honestly, they are a bunch of really fun people to craft with!

OK. Challenge #1 is HOT TROPICS - USE HOT PINK, GREEN & YELLOW.  Well, if you follow my blog, you know those colors are WAY outside my comfort zone, but here goes….

OWH & FS261

I just have to point out: those beautiful stamps are the Floral Filigree stamp set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I just love their peg stamps because they give such gorgeous detail for such small stamps.  Each element is individually stamped giving you complete control over the design of your stamped project.

So pretty self explanatory I think. I used the 3 colors, but I also made it a Mother’s Day card in support of the Mother’s Day Challenge.


But wait! There’s more!  HAHA….. This card is also going into the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper challenge FS261. I chose to CASE this card by Darsie1 who is the Featured Stamper this week.


I took the liberty to make quite a few changes, but I think you can see how it inspired my card.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my card today and will leave comments before you leave! Thanks for stopping by….
