Veteran's Day 2011

Happy Veteran's Day -



There is an Operation Write Home Veteran's Day blog hop that starts today, you can click the badge above to take you to the first stop on the OWH Stars & Stamps blog.


My cards today were a fun project the for the Girls Ministry at our church.  I was asked by our Girls Ministry leader if I'd like to do a project with the girls for Veteran's Day.  She knows I love to make cards and support Operation Write Home...


In an effort to keep it simple for all age groups I chose to use one of Sandy Allnock's fun digital images of her dog Ciara for the girls to color.  I printed the image and sentiment on white card stock and cut them apart and scored them.  That's what the two cards in the photo are on.  We will also be writing "Any Hero" letters in our cards.

  I colored two of the cards to use as examples with Copic markers:  R29, R27, R24, B24, B28, E04, E02, YR21, E34, E35, T5, T3, T1. 


All the cards we colored will be going to Heroes at the VA Hospital in Prescott Arizona.

Wow! Hi, I am a new follower, would you come follow me back? I saw your card on "The Stamping Boutique" this is just lovely coloring! I finished the Introduction to Copic Coloring and now I am taking Copic Coloring 1 but I don't think my coloring is as good as yours! I am so impressed. Also, how do you print digis on to card stock? Now I am wondering if my printer does that. I have an Epson Artisan 810. Sorry this has gotten so long, I am just really impressed with your work!
