Tuesday Throwdown #68. This week the challenge is: Thinking of You. We were provided some wonderful images from MY GRAFICO. I'm using the funky typewriter image (Posh 'n Trendy Stamps). Isn't it fun? What a super variety of inventory they have! You should really check them out.
Here is our post from Tuesday Throwdown:
This week, we have a we have a special DOUBLE challenge for you!
Main Challenge: "Thinking of You"
Bonus Challenge: Send your card to Operation Write Home
In case you're not familiar with Operation Write Home, they are a non-profit organization that provides handmade greeting cards to help American soldiers keep in touch with their loved ones back home. OWH is celebrating its birthday this month, and since it gets its stock from crafters like us, we thought we'd help them celebrate by helping them grow their stock of cards through our challenge this week.
To help inspire you to participate in our bonus challenge, we are offering a special bonus prize this week -- a $20 gift certificate to spend at My Grafico! To be entered into this drawing, you must mail your card to OWH, and then designate that by typing "OWH" after your name when you link up.
Due to a little mix-up, I'm not sure my card meets the OWH guidelines, but too late now.
I decided to make my first tent topper card. If you would like to try one, here is a good tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I used a zig writer on the typewriter paper for the appearance of typing.
I've used a Stampin'Up spiral punch on the bottom. The complete recipe is listed at the bottom of my post.
