Cute Card with Pretty Dress

Hi Dreamers,
Well, here we go...Today is the first post of all the charity cards I made (70 cards total).  I made three cute little dress cards using a digi from Michelle Perkett.  The cards went out to Operation Write Home.  There are some guidelines to follow for OWH cards: no glitter, A2 size, minimal bumpiness, and blank on the inside.  Here is a photo of all the cards for OWH.

This image is a digi that I printed out on white CS and colored with Markers.  I made three different versions. 

Version 1


Version 2


Version 3


I added some all occasion sentiments to each card.  The cards are sent overseas to service men and women.  They use the cards to write home to loved ones.  I think this is a great cause and I have been making cards for OWH for years.  Check out the OWH site for more info.

And how about a few fun challenges!!
Can you digi it: getting girly
Inky Chicks: anything goes
Shopping Our Stash: 3 things with T--Teal CS, Tags, Three die Cut circles --version 2
Craft door magazine: Anything goes

Let's see, what do I have for tomorrow??  How about a trip down the yellow brick road!??  See you tomorrow!!  Have a great day!  Love ya.


  1. Great trio of variations... I love, love the tags hanging on the ribbon! Love those little dressforms in tutus in the main pic too... Will check out OWH - though for some reason, I find cards very hard work - this could be just the impetus I need!
