Operation Write Home / ODBD Monthly Challenge for the month of September:
Not only is it so important that our Heroes abroad feel our love and support, but their loved ones on the homefront have their own challenges as well. Receiving beautiful, hand-made cards from their Heroes makes such a difference in their lives.
So, my challenge for you this month is to create cards which include either a scripture verse, or an uplifting quote or sentiment. Happy Stamping and God bless you for supporting this wonderful cause!
To participate in the challenge, visit this post at OWH, link up your project, and please leave a comment while you are there. To show my gratitude to OWH for allowing me to be a part of the challenge, and to thank you, the faithful readers, I am personally giving away some blog candy (shown below)......leave a comment here on this blog post by Monday, Sept.3rd at midnight EDT. Random.org will do the rest! I will announce the winner sometime on Tuesday here on my blog.
For my card sample, I have used a new set from Our Daily Bread designs, called "Be Joyful". I created the background by stamping the flower flourish multiple times, colored them with sponges & ink plus markers, then added a Cheery Lynn Designs "Fanciful Flourish" and "Border Carnivale" strip, along with the scripture verse framed with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals and Oval Nestabilities. Though I normally pop up all of my layers with foam tape, I intentionally made this one "OWH Friendly", with no popped layers or thick embellishments. I will be donating this to OWH as soon as I can round up a few more A2 sized cards.
Thanks for visiting! If you are able to handle a bit more excitement this morning, you'll have to check out the Our Daily Bread designs September New Release Blog Hop, which begins at 8 am sharp EDT! Lots of beautiful eye candy and more chances to win!!
Have a very blessed weekend!! God bless!
