Triple Snowflakes – OWH Labor Day VCMP #3

This challenge was to use rectangle die cuts with designer paper.  I have had to use the trimmer to make my cuts because I don’t have plain rectangle die cuts.  I like the tonal look of the card – it is very simple, but may be that is okay since it might be masculine enough for men to send.

Thank Who? – OWH Labor Day VCMP #2

Once you get started, who can make just one card?  This challenge was to be inspired by OWH literally – use things on the card that start with the letters O-W and H!  Well, like many of the others, I may have stretched it a little, but here’s what I have:

O – OWL and Orange

W – “Who”, and Wings

H – Harvest Colors

Winter Wishes – OWH Labor Day VCMP #1

Crafting wasn’t on my list for this weekend, but usually read the Operation Write Home blog posts – and there is a Labor Day Weekend Virtual Card Making Party (VCMP) going on!  I really couldn’t resist giving the first sketch a whirl because it looked so easy.  I’m surely not ready for winter, but the OWH timeline is always a few months ahead so the cards can make it to the soldiers in time!
