Thanks for joining the CFH blog hop! If you don't know what I am talking about, please click here!
Many of you know that I am a digital scrapbooker. I do not like the mess or finality of paper scrapping...digi is clean (it's all on my comp) and I have an undo button! That being said, I am a crafter at heart. I love to get my hands dirty making something to give to someone. I have been able to combine these 2 loves with hybrid cardmaking. I take my digital supplies that are oh, so yummy and print them to use with traditional scrapping supplies to make cards.
I am not prolific at it. Have a 20 month old means not having a lot of crafting time. However, I keep at it for Cards for Heroes (www.cardsforheroes.org). I love this site. They take handmade blank cards and send them to our troops serving abroad to send home to family. I have been telling as many people as I can about this site so they get as many cards as my mouth can send them LOL.
Why does this hold a special place in my heart? My little sister is serving in Kuwait right now and I miss her terribly. Sure I get to email or chat, but not everyone can.
The holiday season is fast approaching. For CFH, the holiday season ends November 1st when holiday cards need to be to them. It's early because the cards need to be sent across the ocean twice before Christmas (once to the solidier and back to the US). Please take some time to send some Christmas cards (or any cards) to this very worthy cause.
Now....look what I made:
This card has 2 special things about it. One is it uses all digital supplies (MZ Hope from Studio Ziska and Studio mgl available at scrapbookgraphics.com) that I printed. The second is those supplies are non- Christmas themed.
I challenge you to use non-Christmas themed supplies to make a Christmas card. It really isn't as hard as you think. Paper piecing works wonders.
If you leave a comment, I will choose a few people to receive some digital goodies. If you've never digitally scrapbooked before, now will be your chance. If you are a paper scrapper through and through, you can still print the supplies to be used. It really is perfect for everyone!
Now where do you go next? Well, head on over to Laurie J's blog to keep going!
