Happy Birthday Operation Write Home!

OWH is celebrating with a huge birthday bash this month! Have you made any cards for the troops lately? You won't want to miss the festivities over at Stars & Stamps . . . challenges galore, prizes, and tons of fun with your fellow card makers.

Here are my birthday challenge card entries - I decided to save them all in one post - I can't even say how much fun I have had (trying to) participate in all of the blog challenges - I know that I still have a few to catch up with - but those will come soon. I am waiting on a big package from Close to My Heart with a stash of goodies that I want to use for some of those final challenges!

Here are the cards! Boy, my poor little OWH stamp has really had a workout today!

All cards finished today!

This one is my favorite! I participated in the sketch challenge here.
I used my new Dustin Pike digi and my new "Hooligans" paper by Close To My Heart. That Hooligans paper just cracks me up. . . look at the black patterned paper. . . hahahahaha! What a real brew ha ha ha. Ha ha!

Here's one from a sketch challenge at The Sweetest Thing.
I do think that I love sketch challenges the very best! This is the new autumn paper by Close To My Heart called "Olivia"

The object of this challenge was to follow the sketch and make a pink birthday card! More CTMH scraps were used hereincluding that pink patterned paper and the birthday stamp. I tried to use as many scraps as possible today and now dip into my "new" stash.

The Hero Blog is hosting a hero card challenge - The digi stamp shown here is by OWH's finest - Sandy Allnock. I do love this digi for making hero cards! THIS is the reason to participate in the OWH blog hops - you get awesome digi stamps like these!

Next I was off to CASE  (copy and share everything) One of Martie's cards . I love the stripey one. I used up a scrap of some patterned paper by My Mind's Eye and another one of my new Dustin Pike Digi's. I hate spiders. Truly. But this little guy is just too cute. :)  

Let's make an autumn thank you card. . .  Here is more of the Olivia paper and a stamp set called Fair Blossoms from Close To My Heart.

A child's birthday card for Stamps R Us. . . do you know how many deployed troops have kids at home? I hope that this will make some little army brat's day. :) Who doesn't love Buzz?

Yolanda made us a new digi . . . did you snag it? I just love this kid!

WHO would pass up the opportunity to make cards with googlie eyes??? Googlies are one of my very favorite things. I use them on this digi by Dustin. . . and there is some more of that fantastic Hooligans' paper from Close To My Heart. Don't these things go great together??!?

Sherry  also made us a new digi for celebrating birthdays! I love this little chef! I think that the best thing about him is his little chucks. And the cake of course. :)

Finally, I took the Case one of Kate's Cards challenge, whoo, what a tough one! I do love that chevron cut though. I forgot I made a template for those. :) Here is the last of my scraps of  CTMH Olivia paper. I love those fall colors!

Wow! That is a lot of cards. . . but I still have a few more to post later on. . . did I mention that this birthday bash is HUGE??? Thanks guys for all of the fun. . . I am trying very hard to surf around and hit all of the blogs and leave my links and my comment posts. . . I don't want to miss any of them . . . I love you all!

Here's another for the Christmas card challenges. . . My package came in the mail today. . . I got the Mistletoe paper pack and two new stamp sets - St. Nick and Peace on Earth. . . look for more from these sets soon. . . I think I am in love!
