This past week Operation Write Home Stamps and Stars blog celebrated Independence Day by having a bloghop with its Danish sister organization, OSH. Did you even realize Denmark had troops in Afghanistan? Well, they do, and after learning about OWH, they've been sending cards to their own troops. Is that cool, or what?
At first I came up with the crazy, albeit overly optimistic, idea to make a card from each of the sample design sketches, created by OWH's talented Paula.( Not helping was this was the same week my latest Shelter Bay book came out.) But while I didn't achieve my goal, I managed to finish fifteen, which is why I'm only including links to the original sketches. As with the American OWH cardmakers, the cards from all the participants from OSH were truly an inspiration.
You'll see a bunch lot of Peanuts stamps from Stampabilities. I like working with them because 1) they always make me smile and 2) they're gender/age neutral. I also used my Copics to color them and unless otherwise stated, the base cardstock is from DCWV.
This card is from first opening U.S. sketch of the blog:
Here's Barb's sketch card and I must've been REALLY inspired because, in the chaos that was my card marathon, I seem to have made two versions. lol
