WCMD challenge 1

Saturday was World Card Making Day. Over at SCS they had a day full of challenges from member companies. I didn't get to do nearly as many challenges as I would have liked, but I did get to do a few. Saturday I ended up going to see my dad who just recently got home after over a month in the hospital. He had double knee replacement surgery so I went up to see him. But I did get some of the challenges done.

The first challenge was sponsored by Unity Stamp Company I don't own any of their products yet, but the key word there is yet! This challenge was to use a quote or a saying as the main focal point on your card. So I went through my stash and found one of my favorite quotes for cards to make for my soldier when he was deployed. "I wouldn't mind being lonely, if you were here to keep me company". this card was simple. I just cut a strip of patterned paper from a paper pack I have from Hobby Lobby and I mounted it on Chocolate Chip. I paper pierced and stitched then mounted that onto the card base of Taken With Teal. I added some Chocolate grosgrain ribbon just for an added touch. Then added my saying which I stamped using Chocolate Chip Ink and mounted on more Taken With Teal.

I should add that, the folks over at Splitcoast and all the member companies joined together with Operation Write Home to have all of us crafters who wanted to, donate our cards to OWH. Operation Write Home is an awesome cause. I know first hand how much the soldiers love it when they can send hand stamped cards home to their loved ones. I received a few myself from my husband from organizations just like OWH.

More cards still to come in the next week, so stay tuned!
