I’ve been inundating you guys with my experiments with these new markers….are you getting tired of them yet?

I decided that since these Zig markers love to swim so much, I’d let them. As soon as you give them a sideward glance with water in your hand, you can almost see them get giddy! It was a little challenging when I saw them get so light with water and dabbing – but I think I found a good solution to add nice rich color back in!

I love the star stacker dies – and I think I’m going to keep them nested together. The outline stars are so much more interesting than regular full stars, too! They really set off the sentiment from Winnie and Walter nicely too.

This card was made for Operation Write Home‘s final sketch…it’s hard to even fathom the “lasts” that are happening right now, as it’s been such a big part of my life for so many years. This is the last sketch; I scheduled the last Facebook post; I ordered the last flat rate boxes; and so many other final things. One moment I’m sad about it all, and the next I look at a giant pile of mail and all I want to do is rush to August 1st because I’m so tired! I keep telling myself, I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength…I can do this for one. more. week.

I’ll still be doing a lot as the cards have to be mailed out to heroes for a long time, as we’ve gotten far in excess of what was needed – wow! All the other parts of closing the organization will commence next too. And through all of this, I am just so grateful to everyone who has participated – none of the 3million+ cards would have been sent without so many generous crafters and donors!
