Happy World Card Making Day!

How does a girl who is an avid card maker not post on WCMD?  Well, she's a sick pup for one with a long list of things that have to be accomplished before house guest to arrive this week. This girl almost didn't think she was going to be able to have anything to post today. 

Well, I hope you will understand if I am not chatty with my usual design details today.  I wish I could have spent the day crafting, but I couldn't.  My heart went with the Paper Smooches challenges which is partnering up with Operation Write Home. That of course is near and dear to my heart. You had to use pink on your card somewhere because it's breast cancer awareness month...another thing that hits close to home for me. So it made my choice very easy!


The Owl from Chubby Chums was fussy cut then happily colored in with water-colored pencils and mineral spirits. Inspired by the Hello challenge at Moxie Fab, I paired the Hello from Chit Chat with I adore You from  Good Gab


The bottom layers are rolls of various washi tape I had that picked up colors in the plaid patterned paper.

Here is the sketch to follow:

A simple little card for a wonderful cause at Operation Write Home!

I am also adding this over at Papercraft Star - Anything Goes! 
Happy World Card Making Day!

Hi Tammy! I am so sorry I am so delayed in getting comments returned, thank you SO much for your sweet words on my blog! Yes, I feel you! Every year I tell myself, I'm going to keep the kids parties SMALL, low-key I say! Never happens! I head to the party store and just know I can make way cuter things for a fraction of the cost. Like the kids care, I am sure they don't LOL! ;)Anyway, Happy belated WCMD! this card is precious! LOVE this PS owl, ad the fresh pretty colors you have used. Have a great week!
