Happy Birthday OWH, and an Any Hero Challenge!

     Hello, and a happy Sunday to all.  I am finally getting around to offering up a happy birthday wish to Operation Write Home.  I am so happy to finally be part of this great work!  The Mid Week Throwdown, this week, is to create an "Any Hero"card, that can be included in a shipment for one of our amazing hero's.


     My first card was made using a colored, digital image that I received as a gift from my friend Colleen.  Thanks, buddy, I will sure be using this one again.  I used an assortment of sage and white card stock, My sentiment is from Sweet and Sassy from their Patriotic Cocoa set.  My die cut border is from MFT  Die-namics, and is called Open Scalloped Edge..  The pretty little crystal stars, were a find at Goodwill.


     Card number two, uses my new Thank You stamp from Stampers Best, along with and altered digital star and papers from my scrap bin.  I just love when things come together so quickly.

     On a personal note....  My day long cook-a-thon, this past Friday, was a big success.  I think my new DIL had a great birthday party!  I did not get to be outside as much as I would have liked. Due to the crazy bee population, I was forced to man the house.  People made trips inside to chat, and I got to bond with my new grand-puppy.  He was such a good boy!

Hi Mary Anne, both of these are gorgeous. I love that patriotic birdhouse! I went back and looked to see what I had been missing and your vintage cards are stunning, love that monochromatic blue one. Glad the party went well and I am sure you all had a fabulous time. Hope you are enjoying your Sunday.
Take care,

The birdhouse image sure is a beauty and easy to see why you'll be using it again. I love the digi star too! I don't do much with digital images and I'm really excited to see all the things you are doing with them!
