Vintage Cafe Card Challenge

I discovered a new blog this week that has lovely inspiration.  It is the Vintage Cafe Card Challenge.  This site is in Russian, but with Google Translate you can convert it into your native language.  The link above will take you to the English translation.  The Challenge this week is to make a card with the use of images of :  dancing couples, masks, fans, feathers, chandeliers, candelabra, pattern "Damascus". 

I made this cute little vintage inspired card.

Operation Write Home

Hello!  Operation Write Home needs your help. 

Let’s help our heroes keep in touch throughout the coming holiday season! That means not only Thanksgiving and Christmas cards – but all the other themes too. They’ll most certainly love writing holiday cards, but they also will want to write home to their families in addition to the traditional Christmas messages!
We have 4 prize boxes full of crafty goodies for 4 lucky winners! Names will be drawn on October 11 and announced on OWHtv that evening. To qualify, your package must:
  1. contain half general card themes and half holiday (Christmas, Thanksgiving). Your general cards may certainly be fall- or winter-themed since you have all those seasonal supplies out – or you can take a break from those and make regular general cards.
  2. contain at least 2 AnyHero cards or letters. You can even get your kids to do those for you!
  3. follow OWH guidelines! Don’t forget to line them, triage for things falling off, include a completed packing slip (and write “No place like home” on the challenge line.)
  4. BONUS ENTRY: Cards properly tucked get a double entry! 
Please visit their blog for more details.  Thank you!
