OWH Sketch Challenge #27

Here it is. My take on the Sketch Challenge #27. I went out of the ordinary and did it in the Halloween Spirit.

I have been spending time with Zachary this week. He goes back to Afghanistan on Wednesday. I will miss him, but will be looking forward to seeing him next year.
Take Care everyone!

Furlough Friday

Yes, its a day off and I will enjoy it....Until I see my paycheck.
Today is however the day the Blog Tour at Operation Write Home starts!
I have no experience following along, but will do my best to post often.
They wanted a Birthday card and so I am posting mine. A friendly reminder...
I am very new to card making, so these are beginner cards. Heck everyone has to start somewhere and Operation Write Home has got me motivated!!!

Love to my nephew Zachary, 1st Plattoon, Alpha Company 1-87 Inf.

I do this for you and your fellow soldiers,

Aunt Stacey

OWH Sketch Challenge

Well, my first Sketch Challenge. I now know why people collect tons of markers and inks! Embossing I think can make this card a little more fun, but hey, everyone has a first card, and this one is mine. It took me a while to decide where to start. Color, prints, texture or plain. The plaid paper won and I worked with my colors off that. I think its a bit plain. So with that being said, how do you veteran card makers make things sparkly and unique without glitter? I would love to try anything to add a little sparkle to my crafts for OWH!

I appreciate any advice you can give to this new card maker and scrapper,
Take Care,

June 1st a good day

Today is my nephew Zachary's 20th Birthday! He is serving our Country in Afghanistan, in the Army. I heard from him today and he is doing well. All the guys are complaining about the heat. Zachary tells them its a typical day in Texas! His humor hasn't escaped him. I have put up another shelf in the "Craft Room" (right now its a mess hall) so I can put some more things away and start on more cards. I am going to post some cards I have finished once I figure out how to on this blog.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

First Post

Well, all I can say is WOW....I have a blog! My mind is swimming with tons and tons of things to write, pictures to show, and paper creations to share with you out there, so I figured a blog would help me gather those thoughts in one place. I will usually post in a larger font than most people who blog for the people in the family whose peepers don't see so well anymore.

Everyone have a great day...time to get organized so I can post some things!
