Operation Write Home Blog Hop
Today I am blog hopping with the awesome card makers that send their handmade cards to Operation Write Home. If you haven't come from the blog hop you might want to start HERE.
I have lots to share so make sure you go all the way to the end of this post. BLOG CANDY is at the end of the post.
I want to share with you a bit how I create my cards. Yesterday, it went like this....
I was reading the Country Living magazine of this month and saw the photo of a hallway with a staircase and a dresser that had flowers for knobs. (picture on the right) The wall color was a beautiful guava rose and there were white flowers and black and white and stripes... I had to put the magazine down and run to my craft table and make a card. The inspiration juice was dripping off me as I found the guava cardstock and cut it into 3 cards and then found my white flowers. Then I quickly searched for something to make the yellow centers... Ah-ha!! 3D yellow paint. The scraps of striped black and white papers were easy to use - they were just laying around on my messy table. So here is the result of such great inspiration...
March 18th for Easter cards
March 31st for Mother's Day cards
