OWH Fund Raiser Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Operation Write Home Fund Raiser Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Cathy's blog, then you're on the right track. You can always start at the beginning on Jan's blog if you get lost along the way.

Today I'm sharing 3 cards with you, and all of the images can be found at K'K Designs with special pricing until November 1st. This is "snow thankful" and he was colored with Copics, matted with embossed red & white mats and dressed up with a little sparkly ribbon and liquid applique. I used 2 black mini brads for his eyes to make them more defined.
This image is "Kolar's Care Package" and he was colored with Copics too. I created "wall paper" with copics and a tiny star stamp. The floor was also done with Copics, using a clear blending Copic to etch the design in the floor. The "bow" was a mistake! Ha! I tied the ribbon around the image, and when I snipped the ends, my scissors were behind both layers, so I ended up with this unique bow. I kinda like it now that I've looked at it for a while, KWIM? It was the last of my yellow ribbon, so it will stay as it is :) I added a cute dog bone clip for fun.
And this image is "Eagle" which is also available from K'NK designs for special pricing through November 1st. I used this for an "any hero" card and sent it off to OWH along with some Christmas cards for our troops
I hope you can help us out with the shipping costs of getting our cards into the hands of our military serving overseas by purchasing one, or a bundle of these adorable digi images from K'nK. If you don't need any stamps right now, donations can be made to OWH with the paypal button you'll find here. Every donation makes a difference, regardless of how small or insignificant it may seem!

During this blog hop, K'nK Designs is giving away a prize package to 2 lucky winners!! All you need to do is comment on the blogs in this hop, and your name will go into the drawing! The winners will be announced on Monday October 24th, so be sure to leave some love along the way as you hop along!

Thanks for hanging in with me for this long post, and now your next stop on the hop is Ginnie.

Carol, just perfect, all of them. I love how you did that "room". I honestly thought it was made with designer papers. Fabulous job. Your eagle card cartainly does make me proud and I love the ribbon your used. Your snowman is adorable, so don't be surprised when I CASE it. I was having a hard time trying to color my snowman.n He just wasn't looking right, but now I see how to improve him. I owe you another Thank You.

Love the textures, the ribbons, and how clever to make your own wallpaper and floor design with your Copics!

K 'n K Designs said...

Oh these are so cute! I love the snowman's eyes - they look like the traditional coal pieces! :) And that is such a cool line of silver along the embossed edge of the image - how did you do that? Love the wallpaper and your unique bow in the Kolar card!! :) How fun!! And I just love everything about your eagle card, from the paper to the sky to the ribbons!! :) Thanks for sharing, and thanks so much for being in this blog hop!!

Love all 3 of your cards - great coloring! On the snowman card, I love all of your layers and embossing; it gives it such a rich, textured look, and love the patriotic colors - they really POP!

Beautiful cards all - thank you for sharing these!
