OWH I Miss You Challenge

Happy Wednesday! I was asked by Jan Hunnicutt to make samples for this week's Wednesday Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home. OWH ships handmade cards to our servicemen and women throughout the world for them in turn to mail back home to family and friends. Our challenge this week is "Miss You" cards. My first card I used a stamp set and coordinating die from PaperTrey Ink called Wonderful Words. I used some wonderful Sweet Threads dsp by Basic Grey I just got.

I have seen many tutorials for these totally adorable Sesame Street punch art characters and knew I wanted to make them for this challenge. Can you imagine a child receiving a card like this from their Mom or Dad!!! I wanted to keep them simple and bright. Now it's your turn to get creative!!! Be sure and post your cards on the OWH blog and thanks for stopping by.

This is my second post for today, so, after leaving a comment of course (LOL), please scroll down for my Sweet Sketch Wednesday post!

I am enjoying your blog and would like to become a follower, but right now I can't seem to do that. There seemed to be a lot of problems with Blogger lately. I will keep trying. You are very talented.

A friend of mine gathers cards from a bunch of us for OWH as well, and it's such a good cause! This is a gorgeous card!
