Welcome to another Sentiments Challenge! We're beginning our March challenges this week....and we have something very special for you!!!! We're participating in the Operation Write Home Blog Hop!!!!!! If you're just popping in here, start back at the OWH blog so you don't miss any of the fun along the way.
For those of you not familiar with Operation Write Home, they are a charity organization that sends cards to deployed servicemen and women to send back home to their families and friends. They are always looking for cards, so take those extras you have lying around, and send them off, but PLEASE follow the Card Guidelines they have listed. Some of these guidelines are in place to protect our heroes, and others just keep them from being frustrated. For those of you wanting to send in cards.....the Easter deadline is Mar. 18th and the Mother's Day deadline is Mar. 31st. Don't know who or where to send them to? You can find a list of OWH shippers here.
This week's Sentiments challenge was to use Spray Misting....and we combined it with the OWH challenge of a springtime card. Now, my card isn't all bright and colorful and all that. Because that's not really what spring is around here. In MI, spring (especially early spring) is still brown with just hints of green and color starting to pop up. We still have to rely on storebought flowers since the ones here won't be blooming for another month or 2. So, that was my inspiration for my card. I used Olive Branch and Coffee Shop Glimmer Mists on the kraft cardbase as well as on the designer paper. The flower vase and flowers are from my "Garden Time" set. Hope you'll stop by and play along. There's a $10 store gift certificate and free image prize up for grabs this month.
The next stop of the hop is Darlene. Don't forget to leave some love along the way.
