More Mother’s Day Cards

Filed under: Mothers' Day Cards, OperationWriteHome — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 2:05 am

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the hop. I made these cards using Papertrey Ink’s Delightful Dalia stamps, which is one of my faves. There is a matching die, which makes it super easy to cut out the perfect flower and leaves. The paper is random aqua paper and the ink is ColorBox aqua. I got the ribbon at Michael’s last weekend, but when I went back to get more, it was gone. The gold card is the same, but I used Papertrey’s Sunrise dotted ribbon to make the bow.

I love feminine cards, and I think this is definitely feminine for some heroe’s mother.

I hope you have arrived at my site from Jennifer’s blog and now you get to proceed to another Jennifer’s blog:

The next stop on the blog hop today is Jennifer’s blog at Jennifer’s Blog. She has a very fun Easter card for you to make.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge”.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — patq3266 @ 12:42 am

Hi Everyone,

Here is my card for the February Blog Hop by Papertrey Ink. We are still getting lots of snow, and we’ll probably have at least another month of winter to go. So I’m still celebrating with snow cards.

I used the snow flakes from the Snowfall stamp set from Papertrey and Spring Rain cardstock and polka dot ribbon. I saw the sentiment on a pillow, so I copied it into Word and printed it out.

Hi Everyone,

Here are two cards for a challenge by Denami Design using Lime Green and Navy. The most exciting part of the cards is the double bows that I made. The stamps are from Denami.

I am almost at the end of making Mother’s Day cards for this year. I’ll be sending off at least 160 to Operation Write Home in the next week. I like to make a lot of Mother’s Day cards since it is the biggest “send a card” day for everyone. This way all our heroes get to have a nice card to send home.

Same Card, Different Colors

Filed under: OperationWriteHome — Tags: , , — patq3266 @ 12:34 am

Hi Everyone,
Here is another card that is the same as the Apricot and Green one I posted below, only this one is a different color. I tend to make the same cards, but just keep changing the color scheme. It requires less thinking–which is a good thing.

Purple/Green Thought Card

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday was a really busy day with the OWH Bloghop. I made it through about 80% of the blogs, and plan on finishing the rest this evening. There were some sites I ended up spending way too much time on, checking out everything they’ve posted recently.

It’s also been so nice to get so many great comments. Thank you to all who took the time to say such nice things.

For some reason, I was in the mood today for a card that was cheerful and elegant, all at the same time. Usually the color combination of purple and green fits that description. I ended making quite a few of these already today–I think about 18 so far. I also love the way the stamps from My Time Made Easy stamp. That’s where the flourish and flowers are from.

I used SU! Old Olive ink and cardstock, and Lavender Lace ink. The sentiment is from SU!’s most recent sentiments, and the ribbon is from Michael’s.

May Cards

Here’s the first “different” card I did this month. It’s made with a design from “My Time Made Easy” and some pumpkin ink from SU! I think it turned out nice–but it does make me think of fall already.

Green/Pumpkin Thought

The flourish and little flowers are from My Time Made Easy, and the sentiment is from SU!s sentiments. The ink is pumpkin from SU! and the ribbon is Martha Stewart. The cardstock is Mellow Moss. I’m going to miss that dark green color–it goes well with so many other colors.

I really did make a lot of cards last month, I just never got around to posting them. So I’ll have double this month.
