Those of my readers who are interested in or are members of the Express the Moment kit clubs may know exactly what I mean when I say that some times that monthly kit can be soooooo full of supplies that you barely know where to start! Sometimes. . . I get card block too. . . I sit and look at the pretty papers and embellishments and I think - wow. . . where to begin! That's where the other love of my crafting life comes in quite handy! Operation Write Home has a newish blog called Stars and Stamps. Like ETM, you can look and go . . . wow! There is so much stuff to learn and do here! Luckily, these two revelations come in quite handy when they are paired together!
Another thing that I love about Express the Moment is that I get so many supplies in my card kit each month that I have plenty of stuff to make eight, ten, even upwards of twelve cards every month, and I still might even have scraps left over! Now honestly, I send a few of those cards to friends and family, but I was a little bit at a loss for what to do with the rest. Last July, I came upon Operation Write Home (then called "Cards for Heroes") and the answer to my dilemma was solved. Now I have the supplies on hand every month to make plenty of cards for myself and for the troops - and the Stars and Stamps blog helps keep me inspired with ideas of things to do with those supplies! Serindipity I tell you! But here. . . let me demonstrate!
Stars and Stamps is hosting another color challenge this month. The idea is to make a card using the colors brown and blue. They posted a photo of this shower curtain as an example. Isn't that a pretty shower curtain? It makes me want to make a brown and blue bathroom. :) All you have to do to participate, is make a card using any of the colors shown here.
