Operation Write Home that sends cards to our troops. If you have lots of extra cards, check out this site. They provide a great service. This card if for the stamping 411 challenge.
White cardstock, Scrapbook Wizard DP, Michaels ribbon. 4 hearts cut from larger doily hearts. Pearl button. Sentiment stamped with alphabet stamps I've had forever and don't remember source. I hope a soldier likes my card and will send it home to his/her loved one. I am so thankful for their service and pray for their safety.

tuesday throwdown challenge is a criss cross card. I like to use these for gift cards--just tuck it in behind the inside message. The papers are from Hobby Lobby, the ribbon with butterflies from Michael's. The butterfly stamp inside is Stamp Affairs with Martha Stewart pink geranium accented with a rose star gel pen.The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo also with pink geranium. I used a corner rounder on the message card and smudged the border with light green from Stampabilities.

Laurie's Blog and tuesday throwdown challenge us to make a CAS one layer card. I just finished a set of this card for my Mom who wanted a religious theme card. White card stock, Stambabilities stamp, colored pencils, yellow stickles. And then glue on snips of raffia. That doesn't count as a layer does it? hehehe. Took no time at all to whip these out.

papertreypaperdolls challenge this week is a non traditional color for Christmas cards. I like neon green and pink as non traditional colors for Christmas. I found this neon green ribbon with silver snowflakes at Hobby Lobby and knew it fit the bill. The pink paisley paper and neon green are also from HL. I used green for card, then white layer and pink "Gemstones" cardstock. The little tag is from a stencil cut out, sponged with rose ink and attached with a narrow silver ribbon. The joy is from TAC tag tidbits. I don't have any silver snowflakes so punched tiny silver stars for the accent at the top. What do you think. Christmasy enough?
