Day 9

This card is supposed to be for yesterday. I had company yesterday, so I had to wait for today to make my card. In the meantime, I finally came up with a great way to use my cards! I think this idea passed through my brain a few times already, but now I have quite a stash so I can actually get started. I am going to send them to operation write home. They have a category called any hero mail. You actually write a note to the service person and hopefully it is in a card. You can also send blank cards so the service person can write home. So depending on the theme of the ones I already have made and are just sitting there, will depend on how I separate them and send them to the mailing center nearest me. I am really excited about it as you are allowed to use stickles but not glitter - That one put my participation right over the top, as most of you already know, I don't do much without stickles!!! So at least I can use the cards I have already made!! 
So here is the card for day 9 - I used the same stamp set as the teachers did and just combined the techniques a bit. I thought it came out really cute. Of course, (at least so far) they don't show us what the inside of their cards look like. If I leave it blank, I don't take a photo either!!! OK - quit laughing!! I knew when I saw this stamp set that it was coming to my house and then the same thing happened when I saw this paper. Sorry - you know how poor a job I do when its figuring out which paper pack is which. So here it is! Front and inside both!

The houses and "bushes" are white heat embossed and cut out. One of the little kites on the front is on dimensionals as are the bushes. I used my stamp positioner (that I couldn't do without) to place my greetings as they are stamped directly on the dp.  I thought the greetings were just perfect for the any hero card!! I am posting two cards today again. Tomorrow is the last day of class. I will miss it for sure. Hugs to you all, Barb F

Wonderful card with the houses, they looks great! I think I could use a stamp positioner sometimes, but never got any!

Your cards are lovely! Great idea to send them to operation write home. That is certainly a good cause.

Your cards are beautiful. I'm sure Operation Write Home will love getting them. Like you said it gives you an excuse to make more. I have sent them cards in the past and hope to send them more.
