Finally, the Christmas cards for OperationWriteHome are due to be mailed this weekend, so I’m winding down  on making these.  I did some very simple ones the last few days, with the goal being quantity as opposed to my usual outstanding quality!!  Here are a few of them, and you’ll probably agree, they are very simple:

Hi Everyone,

I am spending this last week of October finishing up Christmas cards for the military people who are deployed around the world.  This organization is now OperationWrite Home (they just changed their name from cardsforheroes.)  Last week I sent a box of 132 cards that my students made on their lunch hour, and this week I’m working at filling up another box and getting it mailed by Saturday morning.  So I really haven’t spent much time with new designs, just making lots and lots of my tried and true designs.  But here is a  card that I scrap lifted from a video on YouTube.

Here is a card using the exact same layout, but this time I used Apricot Appeal ink and tried to give it a look of fall.  It’s amanzing how different it looks:

Anniversary Card

Hi Everyone,

Here is a card I made for my cousin’s 50th Wedding Anniversary.  I’m still making Christmas cards.  They are due to be mailed by the end of this month, then I’ll start making some of these for the troops.
