Have you heard about OWH (Operation Write Home)? "OWH supports our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." Go ahead and check out their website!!

They also have a blog with challenges, ideas and inspiration, OWH Stars and Stamps. I made this card for OWH and also for their weekly sketch challenge. My box of cards for OWH is slowly growing!!

Cardstock (Bazzill, misc); Printed paper (K & Company); Misc (Cuttlebug embossing folder, K & Company letters, Making Memories brads, ColorBox Bronze ink)

I wasn't able to attend this wedding for a young couple at our church, but I did make a card for them.

I took the photo of this card in the evening and I love how the late day sun struck off the glittered heart!

Cardstock, (Misc. from my scrap pile); Chipboard heart (Melissa Frances); Misc (Cuttlebug embossing folder, ribbon, pearl string)
