IASC blog hop for OWH


 
It's our first blog hop here at In A Scrap Creations. We are very excited about it because it's not just for our regular release but we're also doing a OWH preview. OWH stands for Operation Write Home The design team has created cards for the troops to use to send back to their families when they are deployed. These will be sent to OWH to be distributed to the troops abroad. 
 
There are specific guidelines you need to follow if you want to join us in making cards for the troops.  You will find them here .
 
We'd love it if you created our own card and/or cards to ship to OWH. If you do, please post it on your blog and link it in the comment section of the post on the IASC blog
 
Also, we are doing our IASC release. This month is "Silly Owls"...the set is $3 and you get 6 images (that's only 50 cents each)...these are pre-coloured and ready to use for your quick card needs. You will find them listed here .


Hop through the list and leave some love on each blog if you please.

Dude Time freebie

Hey dudes and dudettes, it's time for another freebie from the Dude Time Doodle challenge blog. I was going to use a different sentiment, but I'm trying to get more "Dad" cards finished for OWH, so it simply says Dad.  My Dad was a janitor after he retired from the Army...so this is in his honor. Love ya Dad...
I put a bit of glossy accent on the "water puddle" his is moping up! His pants were an accident...I was going to make them gray but my marker dried up on me...so the grayish blue! I like them. :)
Hurry over to the DTD blog and grab your freebie and play for a chance to win you turn as a guest designer with the girls. They are awesome and I'm having a blast...thanks Dudettes!!

Happy Crafting,
Shirley G

D2D weekly challenge

Faith at Designed to Delight has another great image to play with...if you didn't play last week go to her store and buy this image, next weeks will be free to you when you submit your image in their weekly challenge. This week it is a cool Pail of Flowers... I used the white ping image. You have to try this if you haven't.  The background paper is Gina K digital papers.
I cut tiny little slits on each side of the pail to add the ribbon. Hope you like it.
Happy Crafting,
Shirley G

Lets hear it for the chickens

yum Tasty!!! ....ok I guess that wasn't what Hambo meant about honoring the chicken.  But hey, I like chicken...I did make a cute card also, including the required stripes and dot.  See for yourself.
Hambo sent one chick...but I added another for my card;
