Operation Write Home put out a request for masculine thank you cards, so I got right on it over the weekend at my 4-day scrapbooking retreat. There were about 30 women at the retreat, and they helped, too! We filled up the large flat rate box we started at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks OWH Cardmaking Party on November 3. I was able to send a full box of 276 cards to my OWH shipper Kris this week. About half were "Love" cards and half were "Thank You" with a few other types mixed in. The upcoming holiday deadline is Valentine's Day/Love cards on December 31, so we are well ahead of that which helps the shippers out a lot. On to the next one now! Our next OWH Cardmaking Party at Cat's Creations Scrapbooks in Mineral Wells, TX will be on Thursday, January 5.
At the retreat, we were introduced to the new We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tool. What a way to "class up" a card, and it's easy, too! The pattern you see on the card below uses the Shoelace Sew Ribbon tool, but there are many others to choose from. You can use your own ribbon or the We R Memory Keepers ribbons which coordinate perfectly with their new brads. Love me some We R!
