"Make Someone's Day" Challenge & Sketch #14

So I took a little bit of artistic libery with Sketch Challenge 14 and left out the big "image" that's supposed to be on the left because my Scenic Route "Liberty" paper had such big stars. I deciced to use this sketch for my 2 "any hero" cards for the "Make Someone's Day Challenge" on Operation Write Home, i.e. make at least 10 "any occasion" cards for troops to send home and 2 "any hero" cards! I had fun (?) putting my first set of Stampin' Up stamps together but more fun trying the "FYI" theme stamps on the any occasion cards!

Wow! Has it really been almost 3 weeks since I've been here??! We've been on vacation, had a "doctor's appointment" week and just haven't had that lovin' feeling for scrappin' and cards since we got home 10 days ago.. but my craft room's calling and after a day-long crop last Saturday and with an NSD crop at Traci's great store, Scrapbooks & Etc. this Friday and Saturday, I'm ready to go.

So spring has sprung in the yard in about a week's time in early April with pollen everywhere but gorgeous trees! And a stop in Savannah to see my niece and her two ardorable daughters was fun and pure "eye candy." What a lovely old city!!
