Favorite Cards from 2011 - OWH Blog Hop

My ten favorites of all the cards I made in 2011 for OWH (Operation Write Home). A perfect theme for an end-of-year blog hop. Such fun and inspiration to look at other OWH card makers' favorites on their blogs! And of course, I'd love to receive your comments or questions about mine.

For any of my card details, you can click on the caption below the picture. To return to the OWH New Year's weekend Top Ten blog hop, click here. Happy New Year to everyone, and thanks for visiting!


Like most of my cards, these were created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them."

Love your use of color & textures. The Kraft card is different the way the 'ribbon' runs under!
Happy New Year!

I like the contrast on several of your cards. The kraft card is so cool the way the striped part goes under. It almost looks like some sort of optical illusion.

Hi Cindy! Thanks for posting this lovely selection of faves. I like them all but my faves are the last two, with the quilted & country feel! I see we have something else in common besides cardmaking; I sing in my choir at church, too! Happy singing and Happy New Year!
