Show Me Some Fun Time at Sassy Cheryl's

It's that nosey time of the week again over at Sassy Cheryls.  It is the time when we grab a camera and take a picture of something that we have going on in our lives.  This week I have been working on cards for "Operation Write Home" or OWH.  You make one or many cards, box them up and send them off to OWH.  They sort through them and make sure they conform to their strict guidelines.  Then they ship them to our military so they will have handmade cards to send out to own family and friends. This is the first time I have sent any cards to OWH.  I also support a local group of "Blue Star Mothers".  We make cards and gift boxes to send to our local military.

I used a set of Stampin Up 4 seasons cards for the note cards, the Blue Christmas tree is a Cuddlebug embossing folder  and the red/white Christmas cards is a precious little mouse by Digi Doodles.  The Halloween cards were made with a set from Stampin Up also.

So grab your camera and take a picture of what you are up too.  All of us nosy Sassettes love to peek into your lives and get to know our fellow crafters better.  Remember that Girl Scout song,"Make New Friends and Keep The Old"  I have been singing that (very quietly) while typing this post.  Kinda fits this challenge, don't you think?

  6. What fabulous cards for the OWH cause. These are going to make someone VERY happy!
    Thanks for showing your space this week.

  7. These are all wonderful and love how you've taken it up a notch and made each one using the same image or sentiment different. I love all you have going on here. I also like the sound of the Blue Star Mothers.

  8. OMG, I see the inked background Halloween card! I guess we ARE thinking funny. Even the tab on the card.......thanks for letting me know to come take a peek. Love your gingham note cards too all the cards are so nice. I made cards to put into a box of goodies for a Soldier serving in Afganistan and he wrote and told me that the cards were the first thing to get distributed, even before candy and cookies!


  9. You are one crafty woman!!! so many cards and for such a good cause. I'm so sorry that I don't know of anything like this in my country... - well all our military is actually at home for exception of about 15 people in Afghanistan


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love reading them and making new blogging friends from all over the world. Crafting friends are very special friends.

Happy Crafting, Linda
