I am posting the outside and inside of a card I made for last week's Hero Art's challenge. The challenge was to create a "wrap-around" card where you used all sides of your card. I have to admit, this was a hard one for me to get started. I ended up making a "friends forever and ever" card to cover all the sides. The only problem is that I don't know where to write on this card! Maybe it just speaks for itself.
Here is the inside of the card. I punched two holes in the center to feed the ribbon through and wrap around the card. The flowers are popped up with pop dots. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures.
Okay, now for the announcements. I was chosen as one of My Favorite Things ambassadors for August. I will be hosting a challenge during the MFT release party next Wed (Aug 6th) on Splitcoast. It will be great to see the new images, and I hope people feel compelled to participate in my challenge!
If you live in the DC area, be sure to stop by Angela's this Saturday (Aug 2nd) for the 5 year anniversary party. It is going to be spectacular! You can read more about the party here. Can you believe it has been 5 years? Yikes! I have seen the door prizes as well as the gift people will get just for stopping by. Trust me, it is worth the gas money.
Next, I am so excited to say that my friend Donna's new book is out in bookstores! Woohoo! You can check it out here. Of course, it is the third in a trilogy, so you could always start with the first one. :) Donna's books are so much fun to read. I just don't know when she sleeps. Besides her career as an author, she is one of the most talented and prolific crafters I know.
Finally, I am closing with a shopping list for Angela's open house. Besides all the fun and prizes, each year we choose a community outreach project. This year we are collecting items for veterans in local hospitals or rehab centers. Our VA contact person requested the following items:
- Postage Stamps and Stationery
- Lap Robes (washable preferred)
- Bibs for patients to have around their neck when being shaved or when eating. Bibs should have backing and should be washable
- Triple-edge disposable razors, shaving cream (small cans) and aftershave (alcohol-free in plastic containers only)
- Deodorant, shampoo and powder
- Gloves, hats, scarves, socks and rubber boots or totes
- Undergarments for female veterans
- Brushes and combs
- Battery operated radios with headgear type earphones for patients
- Paperback crossword puzzles and word search puzzle books
Whew! This was a long post. Did you make it to the end?
