One of the things I'd like to do in 2013 is more volunteer work. I've started clearing out some of the excess fabric in my sewing room by having Ariel sew pillowcases for Conkerr Cancer. Now that she can sew a straight seam with a consistent seam allowance, she is a slow and steady production assistant! I'll take some pictures when we get a few more pillowcases finished. We're also planning to make some quilts for Project Linus.
Today I have the first of a few cards I've made for Operation Write Home. The guidelines call for the cards to not have much embellishment/thickness as they do not make it through the mail from overseas as well. So I went very CAS on the card and used one of the OWH bonus layouts for my first card. The layouts are found in a PDF file that you can download here by clicking on the link for 32 bonus sketches. I used sketch B-29 along with an image from Clearly Digi Stamps called "Garden of Life."
Operation Write Home supplies a stamp to use on the back of the cards you make. You just request it from their website, and they mail it to you free of charge.
Image: Garden of Life from Clearly Digi Stamps
Papers: white, pink
Other: Copic markers, Hero Arts ribbon

I've finished a few other cards to send, I just have to get them photographed so I can share them with you.
Thanks for stopping by!
