The challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog is to use some fabric in your creation. I have lots of fabric, but most of it is Batiste(like tissue paper) or gingham, and I wasn't feeling it. I thought I could pick up a fat quarter of small print fabrics at my Walmart, but it seems that only the one in the next town has those. I came back home and did some more searching in my fabric cabinet. I had a bag of mostly Christmas prints that I had already applied interfacing to. It was leftover from a Christmas skirt I'd made with appliqued presents using the fabric, and I saved it to use on a little girl's Christmas jumper one day. In the bag I found a piece of red and white striped fabric and a small piece of blue with white stars. The perfect prints for making a Operation Write Home Any Hero Card.
The image I used is one of the first Tiddly Inks digi girl images. Her name is Annie, and this image is called Annie's Card. I took the liberty of adding the My Hero to the title of the front of her card. I've colored her with Copics. Check out the newest character Wryn at the Tiddly Inks Store.
I've had the card made for several days, and I decided to today was the day to get it blogged. I'll be writing a note to a serviceman and including it in my next box of cards I'm sending to OWH. These gals and guys are MY HEROES.
