Today’s card is for the kids challenge over at Paula’s blog! I used sketch #134 for mine, and a cute image from Whipper Snapper Designs. I fussycut the image, but since it was going onto some really busy papers, I decided to leave a little white around it to help it...Read More

I fussycut the image, but since it was going onto some really busy papers, I decided to leave a little white around it to help it pop…otherwise it might have gotten visually lost. No lost dinos, please!

Lots of folks say they want alternatives to “missing you” on a missing you card. I put a lot of other sentiments in my missing you sections. Things like this one as well as anything about ‘dreaming of home’ or ‘no place like home’ etc. Since we don’t get as many of the other themes as we do the general cards, I kinda get generous with the cards that are on the border between thinking of you and the others. My rule of thumb – thinking of you cards *could* go to a loved one but could also go to a coworker back home, a teacher, or anyone. The love and missing you cards are more personal and lovey for intimate family. Hope that makes sense!

With so many of our service members being guys – I know this card is gonna be a hit.
I’m not a big fan of the “Who’s that guy/gal” series from MFT, but this one doesn’t bother me one bit for some reason – I think it’s possibly the grilled burgers! LOL! The stamp set comes with burger stamps and hot dogs too, but I decided to make my own out of pearl pen! The layout is from one of the sketches Nancy posted in her VCMP challenge to use a scrappy sketch for a card. I love that idea – scrappy sketches have lots more little bits to them! This also works for JoAnn’s summer challenge too!
This is the sketch I chose:
I’d already colored the image a while ago, and picked these great papers from the Authentique “Loyal” collection. Copic colors:

Go out and have a great week….mine’s jam packed, but I feel good that last night I triaged my inbox – so maybe I can keep up now? lol!!Read More
I decided to do a little online cardmaking on YouTube….and despite crazy tech challenges, came up with a googlie monster card!
Stamp is by Hero Arts, papers by BoBunny, sentiment by SRM Stickers, dies by Sizzix, Copics by…Copic, lol. Go googlie-up something and post a pic in the inlinkz!
I hope you’re having a great NSD so far! I’m excited to be a host for one of the VCMP (Virtual Card Making Party) challenges over at the Stars and Stamps blog!!
Note: I’m out for a few hours today (bad timing on a VCMP day!) but….tweet me with your links! Use the hashtag #nsdowh and check HERE to see what everyone else is tweeting too! (If that link doesn’t work, go to tweetchat.com, then enter nsdowh into the search bar!)
My challenge to you comes from one of our heroes; his note in the card request just touched my heart!
Hello, We have a whole building that this will come to, but if you could add some personal ones for me that would be great. My wife and I are not doing so well with the military training and deployments. We got married as soon as I joined, once I leave here in October, we will have spent 2 out of 4.5 years apart in our marriage. As a result, we are not doing so well. If you could add in some “romance” cards, that would be great. It’ll take some thinking out of my brain and hopefully keep our marriage together. Thank you for your support.
So….go make a romantic card! And I’m going to throw in a twist: use one of our OWH tutorials! They’re on our Pinterest board HERE – so pick out one to try! I used the Dimensional Ruffle card tutorial HERE….it was once really popular but has lost a little favor lately!
I used papers from MME, and a little May Arts ribbon
