OWH-Hero Arts Thank You-Sketch 5

Thank You to our Heroes...and to Hero Arts!  Here's a masculine Thank You card for Operation Write Home.  I love that you can add the sentiment separately because it makes it so simple to use a different color ink...and the stamps are clear so there's no problem lining them up!

The challenge at Stars & Stamps  was to:
1. Make a thank you card using at least one stamp.
2. Use an OWH sketch as the basis for it. (I used #5)
3. Share it using InLinkz
4. Leave a comment for Hero Arts on this post.
5. Send your card either to OWH for our heroes, or to Hero Arts!   

I should be wrapping Christmas gifts instead of playing, but oh well, the time is almost up!

Snowman Gift Card Boxes

I love this little snowman from a set I picked up from easy!  I had a couple of gift card holders to make and you know, those Visa/Mastercard packages come with a lot of extra instructions and they won't quite fit in a normal gift card holder...I even tried to cut out a box with my Cricut but since I only have the personal size it was about 1/2" too I made my own.  Luckily a 6 x 12 piece of cardstock worked well, then I used a die from Spellbinders, inked the edges, stamped the image and added some ribbon.  I made one masculine and then the next two I made feminine...I like them!  Think I'll make some more!

And it's snowing here today..."It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"!
