WCMD 2014: Say It with Stencils

Hello, Fellow Card Makers!

In honor of World Card Making Day 2014, Operation Write Home is having a blog hop of LOVE cards. Why LOVE cards? Two reasons: 1) to celebrate our love of card making, and 2) to make cards for one of OWH's 4 themes.  :)

Please click here to return to the start of the blog hop.
And, click here for an update of current OWH needs.

I have two love cards to share -- both of which were made using stencils. The second card is also included in the Words 2 Scrap By stop on the hop. We have a new challenge going on at W2SB with a fabulous prize featuring the wonderful art of Sandy Allnock, Founder and Executive Director of OWH. Hope you'll join us for our October W2SB challenge.  :)
