I'm happy to announce that I'm putting a little dent in non-Mother's-Day Mother's Day cards for Operation Write Home. Hubby's been going to a lot of basketball games lately, which has put a little crimp in my crafting plans. But, I officially have at least of few mom cards to put in the next box I send to Sandy -- including the card shown below.
I've long wanted to make a card featuring a "hi mom" note coming out of a typewriter. After all, that's what all the college kids say when they are shown on the sidelines of a game.
So, when this PS stamp set showed up in this week's mail, I couldn't wait to ink it up!
- The background was created by drawing parallel and perpendicular lines to use as guidelines. Then, I stamped one of the flowers from the PS botanicals 2 set to create the floral pattern shown.
- I used an exacto knife to cut a slit for the typewriter note.
Also, think I'll link this up to the Simon Says Stamp H-is-for Monday challenge -- in this case, H is for hi -- and its bright-and-beautiful Wednesday challenge.
I'm in the process of assembling four more of these. Hope to get to that tomorrow or Sunday. Would love to get my box in the mail to Sandy by the end of the week. Sounds like our OWH cupboards are pretty bare right now.
Feb, 1 - Feb, 21
Think that's it for now. Have a great weekend! As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
