Sorry I haven't posted in a while, but I've been down for the count with kidney stones. It's a long story that began over a week ago with a visit to ER. I was misdiagnosed and sent home, but 2 days later I had to return to the ER, was admitted. and underwent surgery a day later to remove 2 stones. I'm doing better but still not feeling quite like myself. I'd like to erase this past week if I could! LOL
I threw a little card together today for the Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge #21. This week it's a special challenge because they're hosting OWH and asking us to make a birthday card and mail it in for our troops. I send the majority of my cards to OWH anyway, so this was a way to add another birthday card to my next box. Operation Write Home is such a worthy cause and I feel good knowing I'm giving something back to those who serve our country. If you have any hand-made cards you don't know what to do with, please consider sending them to this dedicated organization. You can find all the information in the link above. Please remember, NO GLITTER! It's visible with night-vision goggles and could put a soldier in extreme danger.
My card uses Pacific Point and Gable Green card stock, along with a couple pieces of dp from my stash. I made faux brads with punched PP and Glossy Accents, and added some 3mm Hero Arts pearls on the scalloped punched border. Embossing was done with the square lattice ef from SU! and the bow was created with the Bow-Easy. The sentiment is from SU!'s sincere salutations.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed some nice weather. Today we enjoyed a touch of summer in the air, but it was so nice to have all the windows open with a gentle breeze blowing all day. The only snag is that the weather also brought out all those annoying stink bugs too! EWW!
