More Halloween Cards For OWH

I'm back again today with a couple more Halloween cards for Operation Write Home.

It's such a good cause and right up my alley. I think it is wonderful to give our heros cards made with love to write home with. If you are interested in donating cards you can read about their guidelines on the web site. They do have a few rules you need to follow.

For my first card today I used OWH sketch # 158:

I used some papers, buttons and stamps from Little Yellow Bicycle, adding some twine and a rhinestone for fun.

Supplies used: card stock 2 shades of purple, white; patterned papers from Frightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle; stamps from Craft Smart and Frightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento; buttons in Frightful Collection by Little Yellow Bicycle; twine - Liz's Paper Loft Boutique; rhinestone - Doodlebug; Pop Dots

For my second card today I used sketch # 159 by OWH:

For this card I decided to make my circle a rosette with a clock I fussy cut from paper by The Girls Paperie. I loved the way the clock was almost at the stroke of midnight.

I embossed my pattern paper for some intrest.

Supplies used: card stock - black, orange; patterned papers in Toil & Trouble by The Girls Paperie; rosette - Silhouette Studio cut file; sentiment - Authentique; ribbon - Michaels; brad - Making Memories; embossing folder - James set by Cuttlebug; Pop Dots.
