I (Heart) You

Yesterday I made 10 of the cards below for Operation Write Home.  One of my New Years resolutions was to make more cards for organizations like this one!  Just like most of you, I have an overabundance of supplies to use.  I created scrapbooks for my three children (whom are now grown & out of the house), and now make cards for them & my grandchildren for all occasions.  Although I still work full-time (yuck!), I have plenty of free time & supplies to make cards (plus it makes me feel less guilty that I spent money on all this STUFF!)  So why not put it to some good use!!  I posted a similar card that I made for my husband a couple weeks back, but could not add all the layers on this one for OWH shipping reasons.  You can have a little thickness, thus I popped the sentiment up with foam dots.  I hope that and the bow will not make it too bulky!  Anyhow..OWH typically has more requests for "Love You" and "Missing You" cards.  So I created this batch, and will make a set of "Missing You" cards next. I embossed the white panel with a Sizzix folder. The heart is made with a Spellbinder's die cut, and I used the Pretty Pennants cartridge from Cricut for the sentiment and resized it for my needs! Can't remember right now what set the sentiment stamp came from. Hope they like them!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
