A Show Me and OWH cards

Can you believe, it's only Friday and I'm doing my Show Me Thursday post for the week. Are you impressed? You should be. Just in case you're wondering what Show Me Thursday is let me explain. It's pretty simple. It's a chance for each of us do a nosey around in other peoples spaces. Just for showing your space, the delightful Miss Sassy Cheryl puts up a chance for a free image from the Sassy Cheryl Digi Store.  Just head over to the Sassy Cheryl Blog and post a picture of what you have going on in your life this week(it doesn't have to be your crafting place).

I've been really busy this week making Operation Write Home cards to be sent to our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This is what my desktop looked like after I finished the last set of cards before I cleaned up. This is the mess from just one set of cards.

Here are the cards that I've created.

Music Paper: Carol Anne's Boutique
Sentiment: Mine, so feel free to grab it
Embellishments: Letter Delights  Music SVGs; Paper Studio's Music Embossing Folder

Designer Papers: from my scrap box

Embellishments: ribbons from my stash

Designer Papers:I'm still looking for my source LOL
Sentiment: Elegant Word Art
Embellishments: Ribbon from my  stash

Embellishments:Ribbons with my stash.

Just so you know, before I left Tazmania, I cleaned up and got the cards ready for me to stamp with the OWH logo and stuff in envelopes. Now I'm off to watch some TV and read. I think I've earned a little relaxation.
