happy holidays "AnyHero" card

Today I have mailed a box of cards to OWH including 191 AnyHero cards.

This is one of my "AnyHero" cards. I used the FUNDRAISER STAMPS OWH CHRISMAS COLLECTION from StampersBest.  I cut the tree rubber stamp and stamped separately in different colors by using Stamp-a-majig tool. I like how it turned out.

 I want to share one of my co-workers' message that is very touching.

"The holidays are a time to reflect on all that we are thankful for and many blessings we have in our lives. This is the perfect time to thank you for all the sacrifices you've made and the courage you show each day to help keep our country safe for all families. It is because of Heroes like you that my children can go outside and play in a safe environment, free from gun fire and bombings. I pray this note finds you well and that you too will be home with loved ones soon. Keep your head and spirits up and know that we are thinking and praying for you."

Thanks to everyone for writing a message for our Heroes!

ODBD November Challenge & OWH Sketch #145

ODBD November Challenge

This month the challenge is to dust off a rarely used tool or technique and use it on your card.

I watched a video tutorial a while ago to learn the straw blowing technique.  It was interesting but didn't try until today.  I used my watercolor ink refills (SU 2012 In-colors).  Every piece of paer turned out differently depending on blowing.  Whew... it was a bit of challenge for me.

To try this technique, you will need a glossy paper, watercolor ink refills, a straw and a Klenex tissue.

This was my first attempt on to a whole sized (8.5" x 11") card stock.  I was ambitious.

Next, I cut a card stock into 4 pieces and it was easier to play with.

 Here is a completed card and three more to go based on the OWH S&S Sketch Challenge #145 for this week.

From the card kits donated  by Selene & friends, I made the first sample card for OWH Cardmaking Party, Sunday, November 11, 2012. 
I used my stamp set - Layered Labels.  For the centiment in the middle, I stamped the image separately and cut out by hand.
I need to make four more sample cards.  I will keep them posted.
