OWH Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #64

This weekend I got together with Sparkle and the monthly craft group again. So much fun!! While there, I really was inspired by all the ladies who were donating to Operation Write Home. See, Sandy (notice the PRESIDENT of OWH!!) is a crafty friend of these fun ladies!! I felt like I was amongst royalty! Hehe!! 

I've always *meant* to send my cards into places who need/want them but truthfully, I've been lazy. No more. I believe everything happens for a reason. Lately I've been doing some soul searching, and wondering why I do this passion of mine. Well, I think this was my answer. I *need* to be more purposeful in sending cards. Yes, I will continue my RAK's as I love surprising friends and family with a "just because" card but I also want to spread some sunshine other places too!


So no better time than the present to jump in with both feet. OWH has a blog, Stars and Stamps that offers tutorials, inspiration and challenges. I thought it would be fun to play along with their Sketch Challenge for the week, #64.


Here's what I came up with~ 



Hope you'll think about helping out OWH too! Here's the LINK to their Get Involved page!

The little details~ TAC Cupcake Cuties, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, copics, Pink Paislee 365 Degrees paper, Fiskars border punch, TAC For Someone Special, nestabilities, copic glitter pen,
