Operation Write Home Valentine Challenge


We have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, can you guess what the challenge is?  Valentine's of course!

The deadline for mailing your Valentine cards to our Operation Write Home shippers is January 7th and that is right around the corner, so we are challenging you to make Valentine's for our heroes one more time!

For my entry I used this cute bear image from Bug A Boo stamps.  He's colored with Copic markers E42, E43, E44, R22, R24, R27, my card layout is OWH Sketch challenge #46 from a couple of weeks ago.  I used Neenah Solar White, Neenah Red Linen, Nut Brown and Kraft card stocks, Cuttlebug Hearts embossing folder and the sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set. 

I hope you'll come over to the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog to play along!

There's also a sale going on at Bug A Boo Stamps I thought you might like to know about~

ONE WEEK ONLY! (December 21- December 28)

So sweet and adorable. I never really like that EF but you made it work so well it may have changed my mind! I also really like the touch of black in the matting.
