3 for today

Hi!  I made the first card using the SplitCoastStampers sketch.    I don't know if you shop at Tuesday Morning, but a friend of mine, thanks Wendy,  told me that they carry some scrapbooking and stamping supplies.  Well come to find out, I have 2 Tuesday Mornings close to me and another not too much farther away.  

 I have actually bought a few things there.  On the card above, the background paper which is the plaid paper on the opposite side was purchased from Tuesday Morning.  I had to buy the whole package of 25 sheets, but it was $1.99 for the whole package and it's double sided.  I decided this would be good paper for masculine cards.  I will be making a few of these for Operation Write Home.

The second card is for the Ways to Use It Challenge on SplitCoastStampers as well as Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown.  

The SplitCoastStampers challenge is to make a thank you card.  The Operation Write Home challenge is to use red, white, and blue.  I made these next two cards to be used as Hero Mail   I will write a note in them to a hero and send them with my next Operation Write Home package. 

Quote for the day:  "You don't need a reason for everything you do in your life.  Do it because you want to, because it's fun and because it makes you happy."  - unknown

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Great cards! I love the anyhero cards with that cool star - is it a die cut?

Great cards, Jeanette - love them all! I have a Tuesday morning about five minutes from me, and I rarely go there - I forget:)

Terrific cards! I especially like the masculine birthday design. Such a nice combination of papers and colors in it!
