Operation Write Home-Mid-week Throw down Plus Free Digi’s

  The Mid-week Throw down at the Operation Write Home Blog is Sponsored by Boni Bleaux Designs this week.  There are free digital images available-humorous of course- to make cards for the man in your life.
  This is one of the freebie images- he reminds me of Sarge from Gomer Pyle ………..LOL  The sentiment says, “I wear the pants….My wife tells me which ones”.
  I made the embossing folder with a Technique Junkies tutorial from the latest newsletter and sanded it exposing the white core under it.  I used a die cut exclusive to Scrap Mart- and cut off the rounded sides and top…….  I also colored and trimmed portions of the image and they are on dimensionals (the hat and the clothes). There is no glitter allowed on cards for soldiers, but I learned I CAN highlight with Copic Spica pens- so I did- on the star, the metal and the flagpole.  The cards are better if not bulky- or the soldiers will have to pay customs fees.
Boni Bleaux Designs is also having a 50% off sale tomorrow on Christmas Digi’s.
  There is another free digi offered HERE- for a chance to be the Guest Designer with the DT on the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog hosted by Boni Bleaux Designs.
