Feb. 21, 2013

Today I am still working on getting my supply of cards back to a, have a card ready, level.  I sent 60 cards to Operation write home today, thanks to all the swaps I received at the SU regional meeting.  There were some nice fronts in there and I had to spend a day to put them on cards and then put the OWH labels on the back and stuff the envelope.  Sending to them is one of the main reasons I make cards.

Today I have one that I made for several challenges.  Hope you like it; this one has several cuts from the new Cards cartridge currently for use, free, on the Cricut craft room site.  There are some nice cards on this one; however, you could make them yourself if you have the time.  I used SU paper and a new punch from recollections punch I picked up at Michaels last week.

Hope you have a wonderful remainder of the week. Thanks for stopping by.

I will be entering this in the following challenge:
