OWH Birthday Bash Cardmaking Party in Elk Grove - September 26, 2010

We had our OWH Birthday Bash Cardmaking Party at Elk Grove Grocery Outlet today. Thanks to Kathy, Joanie, Janet, Joan, Belinda, Caro Lou, Carole, Tracy and Karean for coming and contributing to cardmaking for our heroes. It was a great fun day and nice getting to know each other, too! 

We made 275 cards at today's Party.  By adding Benlinda's, Joan's and my cards that were ready to ship, the total will be 469 cards.  We had a birthday cake to celebrate the OWH Birthday that my sister made for today's event.  I am so thankful for my husband, David's support for me. He has been patient with me and helping me a lot every time on our OWH Cardmaking Day.

I took all the photos of cards that we made today and wanted to share.

Here are photos.  Enjoy!

Happy Graduation

Last night, I made this card by Joanie's request.  I tried adding the ribbon in a new way on this card.   I am very happy that it turned out very well.  Hope she will like it, too.

Teresa's sketch challenge at OWH S&S Blog

I made this card with the Distress and Resist technique to enter the Hero Arts' Flickr Group OWH Challenge and also to enter Teresa's sketch challenge at OWH S&S Blog.  I used Teresa's sketch as bleow.  I stamped Maple leave images with Versamark watermark stamp pad and heat embossed in Gold.  I used four different fall colors to distress the background.  I am very happy how it turned out.

This is Teresa's Sketch.

OWH Cardmaking Party Challenges at Hero Arts' Flickr Group

Hero Art's Flickr Group is holding a weekend-long Virtual Cardmaking Party in celebration of Operation Write Home’s birthday.  I made some cards today to enter some challenges that are listed on their Master List of OWH Challenges.  I will keep adding my card when I complete for another challenge on this post so that you can see all at once. By the way, as you can see, I am in the red mood.  Hopefully you won't get sick of it.  HA! (I just have red cardstocks handy after I made some cards with my colleagues at work.)

I made my card sideway because it is better to tuck for OWH cards.

It should be "We wish you a...."

I embossed the angel image with the stamp that I got today to make a card to enter Sandy's challenge. For the edges of silver layer, I embossed it, too.  With card, I also entered to Any Hero Card challenge.  An Angel's Wish! for a Hero's safe return home.

The snowflakes are cut by Sizzix Die and the ribbon punch is from Stampin' Up.

The shape of white layer on this card was to make up my mistake but it looked okay so I kept it that way. I embossed the bottom part with dots although it doesn't show well in the picture.
