Catching up on posting pictures of cards for OWH.

I find that I've been busy making cards and not blogging about it.  :)  So here are the ones I've been working on in the last month or so.  I managed to fill a shoe box with about 100 cards that will probably be going out to Sandy at OWH on Monday.

September 23, 24, 25...oh OK, 26 and 27 too.

I decided to wrestle scraps to the ground and work on sun burst cards.  I went to YouTube for a tutorial.  But for the life of me, my brain just wouldn't wrap itself around cutting the pieces for some reason.  What I should have done is go to the OWH blog about them, http://operationwritehome.org/tutorial-starburst/.  I had major brain freeze.  So I spent nearly three whole days just trying to play with the paper scraps and my paper cutter and finally just started slapping some long skinny triangles down on paper, then covered the center where the points met with sentiment elements.  I think I will not be making these again for awhile, but I think they came out nicely.  Off they go in the box.  I also used up an entire 6x6 pad - Echo Park by Lori Whitlock Paper Co. / Here and Now. Phew.  I think the scraps won.

And last, but not least is my Halloween Challenge card that will be going out in October.  Cora has been issuing a monthly challenge, and other ladies are suggesting weekly challenges.  My Red/Black/White card with the kitty posted earlier is one of those weekly challenges.  (I'm behind..I completely missed Cora's food challenge.  I was wrestling with the sun burst cards, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.)  

It's fun to make a card to send to one specific person.  I have Ronni Unger this month, so I hope she doesn't come over here to my blog before she gets it in the mail.  Shhhh.

(I didn't write the date down on this one, but it was probably during the week of the 16th if anyone is keeping track.  hee hee)






I made several of these with different sentiments and I'll send her one with a Halloween sentiment.
