Pinterest CASE Crop Cards

Last night I attended a crop at my local scrapbook store.  The crop was a Pinterest Crop.  The idea was to make things you have pinned that you want to CASE (Copy And Share Everything!) It was fun.  I managed to get 6 cards done.  Here are the cards.  I am also including the credit for original card.

OWH Sketch #6

Finally, the last post for tonight. I feel very accomplished this weekend.  The papers are from a 6x6 paper pad by Imanginisce called Hello, Cupcake!  It has some very cute birthday papers.

OWH Sketch #5

OWH sketch #5.  All paper is from doodlebug designs boys only 6X6 paper pad.  I wasn't crazy about this card,,but I guess you can't love every card.  Maybe I will attempt this sketch again later.


OWH Sketch #4

Sketch #4.  Patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Hootenanny Six by Six paper pad. Ribbon and solid card stock is from my stash.


OWH Sketch #3

Card for OWH Sketch #3. The patterned paper and punch outs are from My Mind's Eye Hootenanny Six by Six paper pad.


OWH Sketch #2

I used sketch #2 to make this card. I am using this card as my entry for the January ODB Challenge.
The Cinderella sticker is by Sandy Lion. The patterned paper is by BoBunny and the solid cardstock and ribbon are from my stash.


OWH Sketch #1

I got a good start on my goal to make a card using each and every OWH Sketch.  Here is Sketch #1.
The Micky is a sticker by Sandy Lion.  The patterned pappers are by Reminisce and Creative Imaginations.

My 2013 OWH Card Making Goals

Happy New Year!!!

Many people make resolutions for the new year.  These are not my resolutions for 2013, instead they are my goals.  My goals for making cards for Operation Write Home in 2013.  Here they are:

Make a total of 1000 cards with at least 250 of the cards for children

Make at least 1 card from every sketch (there are currently 154 sketches)  I will do each new sketch as they are published and start from sketch #1 and work my way through all of them.

Participate in the ODB Challenge every month.

Participate in at least 75% of the MWT challenges.

Do six 6X6 paper pad challenges

Last but certainly not least, spend less by using up what I already have!  (I know we all have this goal, but it is especially important to me since my husband lost his job on Aug. 31, 2012.)

Well there they are!  I will post a progress report each month so that I can track my progress.

My Craft Space....

I got 2 new storage units from IKEA for Christmas.  I had to fill them and reorganized my crafting area.  Here are new picures of my workspace.  It is "L" shaped.  The drawer units under the table in the first picture are the new units.  I love them!!  ( I would love to have 2 more!!)

Here is a peek inside the new drawer units.  So far I am using them for my punches and wood mounted stamps.


My 10 favorite cards I made for OWH in 2012

Here are my 10 favorite cards I made for Operation Write Home in 2012.
