Watering Can Card

You may be surprised what you'll find if you start really looking at the images available on Cricut cartridges!  Who knew that Plantin Schoolbook had such a great grass cut on it?  I certainly never would have known without having done my list of cut files in an Excel spreadsheet.  Now, when I need a certain shape, I can just scroll down through the list and see which cartridge to use.

The flowers and water can came from Walk in My Garden. The flowers were resized in Design Studio.  I inked the petals and the edges of the centers.  The faces are Peachy Keen stamps.  The sentiment was computer generated.

There are a dozen of these, completed and ready to go into my box for Operation Write Home.  I had planned to get the box sent during February but just couldn't get enough cards done to fill it completely.  This shipment of 264 cards brings my total sent this year to OWH to 841.  My goal is to ship a Priority Mail box each month as long as they need cards to send overseas.

If you're not familiar with OWH, check it out here:  Operation Write Home
It's an online group that makes and sends cards to active military for them to write home. 

Inspired by card seen online

My son is in Afghanistan. I would love getting a card like that from him. Thanks for doing it.
