2015 Christmas Cards

 These cards were made from unfinished kits which a friend who had been a Stampin' Up demonstrator gave me because she was moving out of state and needed to clean out her stash.  Thanks, Donna!

In all, I made 131 cards, not counting the ones for the hospitalized children.  The middle top card is the one I made the most of before I ran out of supplies to make the 131 I figured I needed.  The Christmas tree is clip art I found by Googling 'Christmas Tree'.  The ornaments are from stamps I own.

December 2015 Secret Pen Pal Card

Instead of a Christmas card for the hospitalized children, I try to make winter themed cards.  The inside says, "Let it snow!!!  We want to make SNOWMEN!!!"

I'm Hooked on You

For August Secret Pen Pal cards, I copied this one from one I saw on Pinterest.  The big fish was one I found by googling 'cartoon fish'.  I cut them out and placed them on woggles, then added the little fish and other seaweed from sticker sheets I found at either Walmart or Dollar Tree.  The hook is a reverse 'J' cut on the Cricut out of silver cardstock. I added a piece of tan sewing thread as the fishing line.  The inside says, "You're a great catch!"

National Hug-A-Monster Day 2015

Ok, so I created my own national holiday...
The monster was printed from one I found on Pinterest which I cut out by hand then added a woggle; the dots are holographic from Sticko by eksuccess.

The inside of the card says, "I'll hug one if you will!".

Operation Write Home

This past week, I received the news that OWH is going out of business because the majority of the troops will be home before the end of this year.  On one hand I'm sad I'll no longer have a place to send hundreds of cards every few months and that is really being selfish.  On the other hand, I'm really ecstatic our troops will no longer be involved in trying to bring peace to countries that absolutely do not want it because of religious differences.

May 2015 Secret Pen Pal Cards for KIds

This was an easy card to make.  After printing out the front and inside message, I drew the stems with a Marvy LePlume II in a darker shade than the card  stock.  The white was daubed onto the card using a 1/4 inch stencil dauber dipped in acrylic paint then lightly applied.  The hardest part was waiting for the paint to dry.

Secret Pen Pal Card for March 2015

When I started making the cards for March, I realized it was taking me far longer than I had allowed time for in order to have them ready by March 1 for delivery to the hospital.  (Those I'll complete and send for April.)  So I set them aside and made up these.  The leprechaun is on a woggle so he will "dance" when handled.  The inside of the cards says, "I could dance a jig when I think of you!!!"

Valentine's Day Cards for Kids 2015

This card was really quick as I used three strips of different patterned washi tape and one strip of duct tape I found at Dollar Tree a week ago.  The foam hearts were part of a package of different sized white, pink, and red ones also at Dollar Tree.  I wrote "U & Me" on the hearts, mounted them on woggles I made and slipped them into envelopes....really, really quick and easy.  Hardest part was taping the woggles to the cards..

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Card

This is a card I copied from one on Pinterest to take to the pediatric ward in the local hospital. Using the Cricut and SCAL software, I picked the font from my computer's file and made a stencil to color in the word, "Cowabunga" out of cardstock.  I used wiggly eyes and dimensionals to pop the faces.  The inside says, "Hey, dude! Isn't it time for a pizza"
