I used the newest OWH sketch to make my card for the January Our Daily Bread Designs card challenge. The challenge is to make an AnyHero card with a written message of gratitude inside. I made this card to give to my local police station. I believe they are often overlooked for their service to the community everyday.
There's a new card challenge over on the Cards in Envy blog. It's Going GRAY. The challenge is to primarily use the color gray on a card. I will admit, this was quite the challenge for me. Mostly because I don't have very much gray paper in my stash. I did lots and lots of digging to create this card. I used many different paper lines, including some Project Life cards.
I had some crafty time yesterday and today and made a few cards for some card challenges. The first one is for Operation Write Home's Mid-Month Throwdown. The theme is to make thank you cards for our heroes to write in to send home.
My final card is for the current Cards in Envy challenge to use banner on a card. Although all three of my cards actually qualify. I've had a few sheets of this 12x12 paper for several years and thought it worked perfectly with the fun puzzle piece die/stamp set.
I finished the Echo Park - We Are Family 6x6 paper pad almost a week ago, but just recently had time to photograph all the cards. I made a total of 23 cards this time. (If you're new to my blog, click HERE to see my 6x6 tutorial.) I tried to do a good variety of different themes with lots of Miss You cards since most of them will be donated to Operation Write Home.
It's been awhile, but I wanted to make a card for the new Cards in Envy banner challenge. I love using banners on my cards. The first card I made started to get a bit thicker than I had originally intended since it has lots of layers. It still isn't any thicker than 1/4", but I wanted to make sure to still follow the Cards in Envy guidelines.
Happy New Year! I'm joining Operation Write Home's Top 14 of 2014 Bloghop and sharing my favorite 14 cards of 2014. Although I decided to change it up a bit. I'm sharing my favorite 9 cards, and since I'm kinda known for my 6x6 paper pad tutorial, my favorite 5 - 6x6's and the cards I made with them.

Here are my favorite five 6x6 paper pads I used. Can you tell I'm a huge fan of Doodlebug paper?

Thanks for visiting my blog today and happy crafting in 2015!
Happy Birthday to my sweet girl. I can't believe she's 5 years old already. This is the card I made for her. Since it's not going to Operation Write Home, I added some pretty sparkly glitter and thicker dimension.
