Hello, Here is a card I made for the Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Challenge from the Stars and Stamps website. It is my favorite card to make for OWH as I always pray as I make these cards that a marriage will be made stronger.

The stamp set is from Gina K Designs called Branching Out; the embossing folder is Victorian Wallpaper by Stampin Up!; the border punch is from Martha Stewart; the cardstock is Sweet Corn from Gina K Designs; the rest is from my stash of stuff! I used the letterpress technique with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and the embossing folder and I put the tip of my Copic marker through the back of each hold on the belly band. 

Hope your week is wonderful and I'll see you soon dear ones!

An Easy but Beautiful Card to CASE if You Wish

Hello, my friends! I am working on some cards right now and this is a card that is simple, quick, and easy to make, but I thought turned out quite nice. The DP is from Linen Closet from DCWV; the ink is sage shadow from Stampin Up and is stamped directly to the card base; the border punch is from Martha Stewart; and the ribbon was on sale at 50 cents a spool from Michaels. The DP is cut to 4.25 x 3 inches then punched.

Just for fun, here is a picture of our puppy (8 months now) Charlie sitting in our MG. He loves to ride in it because the "windows" are always open!

I hope you are having a terrific week. Blessings and love,
