Operation Write Home-Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and I am thrilled to take part in another Operation Write Home Blog Hop!
  The Hop starts at the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Blog Home Page HERE

I have three spring cards to share with you PLUS a little sweet candy........!  Please stop back Monday night 3/7at 8PM CST to see if you are the winner of my candy!

 I am alot Irish, so the first Spring card I want to share is an Irish card:
 This is a digi by Glitterbabe and is for the sketch challenge at CDAC. The Patterned Papers and Sentiment are by Create with TLC. The beautiful Gold card stock is white on the inside for writing your favorite Irish greeting!

 Next, Spring is such a great time to welcome a baby- perfect time to be able to get out and take walks and enjoy the outdoors.  


  I used a digi from McMahon Five Designs and did paper piecing and paper piercing. 

And finally, a Miss You card for a soldier to send home to his loved ones- the owl is a punch from Stamping Up. The background is brown and the inside is embellished with the vanilla card stock and the heart from the owl punch too.  So fun- my friend CASE'd this card and we made cards together last night- so fun- I am going to have to break down and get this punch.......!

  I love challenges- and the Operation Write Home Blog has a Sketch Challenge each Sunday and a mid week throwdown each Wednesday.  Please stop back and check out the challenges- it will get your MoJo going and you will brighten up someone's day making a card for a soldier!

Now, for the sweet Blog Candy- I have a set of border stamps to one person that makes a comment on this post- I will draw the winner on Monday evening at 8PM CST using random.org.
  Almost as good as sewing on a card- many borders in two sizes.  I do ship to anywhere in the world. Just leave a comment and please consider stopping back by Operation Write Home in the future!

  Now, for more fun, Hop on over to LONI'S Blog for more OWH Spring inspiration!!!

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly

What great cards. I just love the owl. TFS.

scrappinheaven said...

I love that owl punch too, and sad to say that I don't own it yet even though I'm a SU demo....lol. I plan to rectify that situation very soon :-) I was reading your bio and see that you like to research family history...me too! I've traced back my dad's line to the 1600's, but I'm still stuck on our Native American line. I have found proof of our Choctaw heritage, but haven't been able to go back any further. NA research is tough!

Yolanda said...

That owl card is FABULOUS!!
