Christmas Cards

I made these Christmas cards after hearing about a little boy in NC sick with Leukemia. His wish is to have his hospital room filled with Christmas cards. If you have an extra stamp and card please consider filling this little boys wish! I sent both of these cards because I couldn't decide on this one to send. It is definitely worth the 88 cents to imagine the smile on little Ethan's face! If you wish to send Ethan a card please send it to this address.

Ethan Hodges
West Forest Baptist Hospital
Medical Center Blvd
Room 914
Winston-Salem, NC 27157

Please take the time to say a prayer for this little guy.

MWT Fall card

I got 2 new dies this weekend at JoAnns on clearance for $3.97, so I thought I would try them out and what a better way to use my new leaves for a MWT card! The picture is hard to see the leaves but the green and yellow ones are distressed to be fall colors! The sentiment is from Meljens I think.

Virtual Card Party 2

This is a continuation of the virtual card party. 
Challenge #9 1, 2, 3 challenge... I used 1 patterned paper, 2 stamped images, and 3 word sentiment! And of course a Halloween card!

Challenge #10 1 Stamp 2 ways Here is a lil girl that loves fall and christmas! I love this digi stamp from Anne Bodil, this lil girl is adorable!
Challenge #11 Pinwheel   Here is my halloween pinwheel! Everyone will soon see that I love Halloween!
 Challenge #12 Foodie or fruity fourth! This cherry image worked wonderful so I thought I would make the background a patterned paper of cherry blossoms! The cherry blossom paper is from the Photo Real stack. The digi is one that I colored a while ago and just haven't found the right use for until now :)
Challenge #13 Bear your heart   I colored this image for a baby card and decided to use a different image then and I thought it would be a perfect match for this challenge as she has a lil heart on her foot. Then I thought it would be great for a miss you card for a service member to send to their lil girl!

Challenge #14 "Color Me Crazy" This lil pink lion is very ferocious and her background colors match her real colors! She looks like she is a guardian!
Challenge #15 Puns! I looked through my stamps and it seems that I don't have much for puns but here is what I came up with. I got the love bug stamps awhile back and really think they are adorable!
Challenge #16 Last but not least! Animal challenge! I just got these zoo stamps this weekend and as you may be able to tell I really think they are cute! I don't usually make cards that are just stamped but I love these lil critters.

Virtual Card Party

I am really enjoying the virtual card party and thought I would share photos of the cards I make as we go! To the right is Challenge #1 Anyhero card Camouflage. I didn't have any camo paper so I made some with a little bit of sand paper and some coredinations paper!
Challenge #3  A color challenge using all of the colors and this giraffe that if colored would use those colors!
Challenge #4 What freedom means to me. To me freedom is all about the heros that fought for it and continue to fight for our great nation. My deepest gratitude goes out to all veterans!

Challenge #5 Vintage Card    I don't have much for vintage so I looked through the "Tattered Time" stack and found this vintage radio and music sheet.
Challenge #6 "Howl at the Moon" I don't have much moon stuff but as Halloween is my favorite holiday and there is a moon here!

Challenge #7 Subway Art Summer Memories I thought since my favorite fruit is clementines I would chose that as my background and put the fruit and veggies as the largest font.

Challenge #8 Using this photo. The first one I printed off too small so I decided to print another and make 2 cards. Both cards are anyhero cards. The picures didn't turn out that great because I was trying to take a picture of a picture.

Any Hero cards!

Here are some of the any hero cards I made after the Memorial Day blog hop! The little stick military men are a set of stickers by Me&My BIG Idea. The paper bordering the images us from the K&C company Americana book. The background paper is from a scrapbooking garage sale that I went to where I got some different Red, White, & Blue papers and also a cuttlebug for only $15. I am so excited!
