Here it is Wednesday again and there's a new challenge starting at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps! The Midweek Throwdown challenge is to make a masculine card for our heroes to send home to their loved ones...
and I don't have mine ready...
But, I do have some fun cards to show you for the Operation Write Home Spring Thaw card drive.
This first one is an any occasion kind of card. I found these cute bee images at Mami Doodles, they are a pre-colored freebie from back in December 2010. Click on their name and a link will take you there. I really like the Mami Doodles images and hope I will have time to play with more of them soon!
My layout for this card is very simple. The black and white polka dotted paper is a digital paper by Jak Heath, the sentiment is computer generated and I used my paper crimper to give the PTI Lemon Burst panel a little texture.
My next card uses the bee with birthday cake, perfect for kids cards! I was using my scraps again for these cards so I have several of the same images and papers utilizing the smaller pieces of digital papers I'd printed. This digital star paper is also by Jak Heath, in it's original form it's black and white. I wanted yellow so I re-colored it in my Publisher program and printed it. The yellow card stock for this card is Stampin' Up! Summer Sun, it matched my digital paper best.
For my last card in this collection I was running out of digital papers so I cut three strips out of a larger piece. This digital paper is also by Jak Heath, it's actually the same as the polka dotted paper on my first card, I just re-colored it again to suit my color scheme.
I hope you have time to play in the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown challenge this week, it's a masculine theme and I hope I have time to play too!
