Welcome to the first stop on this weekend's OWH VCMP! I am so excited to be hosting a challenge. Thanks to Sandy and the OWH team for organizing this party. :)Challenge #1: His and Her SKETCH Cards
|Inspiration: OWH Sketch #161|
Step 2: Use the sketch to make two cards: a his card and a her card.
Step 3: Link up your cards below.
Okay, if you are ready to go:

Operation Write Home Information
OWH: Operation Write Home is a wonderful nonprofit organization consisting of a "merry band of cardmakers" who make cards to support our deployed troops. We make blank cards that troops can use to write to loved ones back home, as well as Any Hero cards that are handwritten notes of appreciation for our heroes. There are many ways provided by OWH Founder Sandy and the OWH blog team to inspire us cardmakers, including weekly sketches and virtual cardmaking parties.
Card Guidelines: Since we are sending cards to troops deployed overseas, there are some card guidelines. The big four are: 1) A2 (5.5" by 4.25") cards, 2) glitter-free cards, 3) cards for specifically-requested themes, and 4) liners for cards with dark-colored bases. To learn more about OWH card needs, please visit OWH card guidelines and OWH mailroom operation.
So, what's a party without a little candy? You might have noticed I used Paper Smooches stamps on the her card and PS stamps and dies on the His card. Well, there's nothing much sweeter than stamps and dies from PS, a longtime OWH supporter.
Thanks to the generosity of the uber-talented Kim of Paper Smooches, there is a $20 PS gift certificate up for grabs. The gift certificate will be randomly awarded to one lucky person who links a photo showing both OWH-sketch-inspired cards -- one his and one hers -- by 8 A.M. EST on Tuesday,
Have fun! Can't wait to see your sketch-inspired his and hers cards. And can't wait to see what the other hostesses have planned for us. See you at Michelle's at 10:00 EST. :)
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
