A full day of work… packing cards for soldiers, and 2 Tropical Party Card shares!

Today is the day that I’m packing up retired card fronts and samples to be shipped to the Operation Write Home folks.  The card fronts will be completed and along with the cards will be sent to soldiers to facilitate communication with their loved ones at home.  The organization is in dire need of cards… I know I’m sending a bunch, but maybe you would like to send some too… Click HERE to visit the site and get more information on how you, too can help!  (psst.. this would make a great community service project for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Church Groups too!)

Today is also the pre-order day for Stampin Up! Demonstrators and the launch of a NEW $99.00 Starter Kit for Demos!  The mini kit has everything you need to get started as a hobbyist or business demo.

Today’s card share is a CASE of a beautiful Tag card I received from Wendie Haynes.  I didn’t copy it exactly.. but it’s close enough that I must concede credit to the creator!!  Thanks Wendie, for the fabulous card and inspiration!


Both cards use the fabulous and fun Tropical Party Stamp Set, and Island Oasis Designer Series Papers.  I chose to mask and stamp my layered flowers… but Wendie took the time to cut each one out individually… here’s her fun WOW card:



Got to go back to work and pack up some more cards and card fronts… Tomorrow is the First Wednesday Card Club, we’ll have a special guest visiting from Nashville, Tennessee… hope to see you there!


Pin It!
