Sandy, President of Operation Write Home, put out a request for cardmakers to send in one kit of 6 cards for CHA. She asked us to use current products from companies that partner with OWH and that was the biggest part of the challenge for me! Most of what I buy is on clearance so I had very little current stuff in my stash. I did win some Paper Smooches stamps recently, so I decided to use them with some plain cardstock to make my kit.
Since this is a love card, I'll put in a little plug to remind you that Valentine's Day cards are due to OWH shippers by 12/31. That being said, have a heart and ship them early so that these generous volunteers aren't swamped with work over the holidays! Love cards are also the OWH Midweek Throwdown, so you can link up your cards on the OWH blog when you've made them. :)
As I put together this post, I saw that Paper Smooches is having a Sparks challenge right now to use cameras on a card. Is that a coincidence or what? Yay!
