I'm blue without you

Our young men and women who are serving our nation overseas enjoy writing home to their loved ones. What better way to send a note than with homemade cards. That is what Operation Write Home is about.

The cards they like to send best are "Miss You" or "Love You" cards. The card I made today, for OWH, falls under the first category. I used one of Stephanie Barnard's The Stamps Of Life new stamp sets called Crayons2Stamp. A really cute and fun set.


Supplies used - cardstock - white, three shades of blue; doodling template - Sweetwater; twine, button - my stash; stamps - Crayons2Stamp by The Stamps Of Life; ink - Tukedo Black by Memento; Pop Dots.

I think this is the neatest card. So many more colors and sayings. You could have an entire rainbow of these. GREAT JOB!
