Operation Write Home challenge #171 and Midweek Throwdown


Sorry I have been aloof lately, but my grandmother has been in the hospital.  She is 95 years old!  Goodness that is getting up there in years!  She has a serious infection, and is home with my Aunt who has been taking care of her for the past 7 YEARS!  Bless her soul to be so loving, patient and caring!  She has a picc in her arm to receive high dosages of antibiotics.  She seems to be doing better, but she is so tired...  Here's a picture of sweet Grandma with my hubby:

Prayers are always appreciated!

Now, on to Operation Write Home.  I combined OWH's sketch challenge 171 with this week's midweek Throwdown which is to make his and hers cards.

This is the sketch:

and here is the "his" version:

I used DCWV's  All About Boys stack.  I love using the paper from this stack.  The helmet is fussy cut and popped up.  The rest of the materials was from my stash.

here is the "her" version:

Everything in this card was made from my stash.  I'm not a big "bling" person, and was wondering if there were too many jewels.

Thanks for looking.  I'm so happy I had time to do some cards today!!!  Now I'm off to my last class before finals!

Take care and God Bless!



  1. Prayers for your grandmother- hope she is well soon! And your Aunt is awesome; I admire her for her devotion! Your cards are great- and I love a little bling and sparkle- so no- there is not too much on your card- just right! And I love what you did with the DCWV papers- nice fussy cutting!

  2. Best wishes for speedy recovery to your Gma! The cards are very sweet, love the little helmet. Thanks for your commitment to the troops, even when your plate is so full!
