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

  4. The bright colors make this card shine and I wouldn't have thought you're a beginner with how well you did that card.

  5. Your card is great, and you are a bit above a beginner I believe -- at least the card leads one to think so. Give my best to Zachary and welcome to OWH!

  27. You did a wonderful job on your cards for a newbie....I'm also one! This is my first blog too and it does take some time... still have a long way to go. But I enjoy reading everyone's blog to see how they've set it up, etc. and learning from them as I go.
