Playing some catch up

Yet again, I've fallen behind in posting. One of these days I'll get into the habit of posting when I take a picture of a card, instead of just leaving them in the camera. So...let's get on with it!

Here's a "ruffle" card I did for my favorite 5 year old's birthday. Her party theme was princesses. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived and she was dressed in a pink Disney princess dress.
This is the first time in a long time that I've used a sticker. Thank goodness for the sticker blog hop awhile back from Operation Write Home. It gave me some great ideas. The main one was to treat your sticker like it's a stamp or your main embellishment. This was fun to make but it took awhile. I'm not sure I'll make many "ruffle" cards.

That being said, lol, here's another one I made a few of for OWH. Yes, it's another "ruffle" card. Although, I was told it can't be ruffles if it's a masculine card. Sometimes men can be SO picky.
It was fun to work with some more masculine papers. I certainly have a lot of it, but always seem to end up with girly cards.

Have you heard?! OWH hit the MILLION card mark! That's right, we have sent one million cards to our deployed troops to send back home to loved ones. It's amazing! I'm so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization that allows me to be creative and give back something to our troops. Here's a card to celebrate.
Of course it had to be red, white and blue! The penguin is from DeNami colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Gina K. You can't really tell, but the balloon has some Stickles on it to make it shiny and glittery. Congratulations, Operation Write Home!

Last, but not least, here's a card using some of the stamps I picked up at the Heirloom show on Saturday. I love going to the show, but I always go way over my budget!
I've had the water paper forever and thought it would be perfect for these fish and bubbles from Rubbernecker Stamp Company that I colored with Copics. It turned out to be a little too busy to showcase the fish, so I added a square of blue vellum to tone it down. I also added googlie eyes to one fish and Glossy Accents to all the bubbles. The sentiment is another new stamp I got on Saturday from Magenta.

Whew! I think that catches me up.

Thanks for stopping by!
