Before my old, old camera bit the dust, my husband and I had looked at cameras and I showed him the Kodak EasyShare Max. After my old, old camera bit the dust, I borrowed a friends camera, which led to my husband sneaking out to buy me the camera I wanted. He told me he was going to drop some things off a Goodwill. I was thinking it was taking him a loooong time. The sweet man came back with the camera that I wanted.
This is a card I made using Creepy Halloween scraps.
Several members of my family have served in the Marines and I admire the strength it takes to protect the freedom of others while being away from your loved ones. This is just one very small way to show my appreciation to those who serve our country!
Pictures will be posted next week of the card making event for OWH and all of the cards we make. Here you will find a sampling of 2 cards we are making. Enjoy all of the bogs participating today!!
October 1 is World Card Making Day. I am gathering my friends to make cards to send to Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home is an organization that sends handcrafted/homemade cards to the men and women serving in our Armed Forces to use to write home to family and friends. I will also be participating in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop, which will not only feature individual bloggers (some may have prizes), but also corporate bloggers with prizes to give away. Check back on October 1 to Blog Hop!!!
The photo and sentiment on the card front are both from Create with TLC http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/. This was a freebie a couple of weeks ago.
I have a friend who I call the 'Purse Girl'. She loves handbags. This is similar to the card (her card had pink instead of blue) I made for her birthday:
Coming Soon: Photos of the cards I made for the August Card Swap.
One of my friends has been talking about things to put on a 'Bucket List' for a long time. I think her list must be quite long so I made her a simple 'Bucket Book', which I am sure she will easily fill with her lists.
Inside cover with Very Important phone numbers (of course Morgan Freeman's number is made up).
I made this card for my mom for Mother's Day. Whenever I make cards for my parents, it takes me back to elementary school. It brings back those feelings of anxious anticipation. As an adult I know that my parents love everything I do, but I still have those same childlike feeling.
The card elements came from Crafty Mice ($5.99) svg collection from http://svgcuts.com/ . Crafty Mice has lots of crafty svgs for knitting, crocheting, photography,painting, gluing, and sewing, plus some mice.
I'm sorry, I don't know where the sentiment came from. I wish I sknew so I could give credit where it's due.
I made the same card for my husband to send to my mother-in-law.
I hope both Moms like their cards.
This was a fun card to make. I love humorous cards. Since I never use the phone book any more, I thought I would find some ways to use parts of it. As I was making these, I happened to notice some familiar names and then it struck me that I could really personalize some of these cards. I found a co-workers name, made her an Un-Birthday card (didn't know when her birthday was). I used the page with her phone number on the inside of the card and circled it in red. Maybe all my friends will be getting something similar.
Here is another card I made for my oldest son. He often loses his phone (he is over 30 years old). I had sent a text message to both my son that read 'Since neither of my children can take the time to call their mother, I am changing my will and leaving everything the the neighbor girl.' My youngest called me within two minutes. I didn't hear from my oldest for another couple of weeks so I sent the card below. The whited out part of the arrow was our home phone number. He did call when he received the card.
