Lucy's Valentine

Hello! And welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home Be My Valentine Blog Hop! If you've come to my blog from Shelley's, you are on the right track. Be sure to read to the end of the post for a link to your next stop, some candy, and a challenge! If you get lost during the hop, just pop back to Stars and Stamps for the complete list.

My card today features Lucy from The Angel Company, all watercolored with Tombow markers and layered with some of TAC's new FREE downloadable patterned paper. Oh my! I couldn't believe it! Look at those gorgeous colors!!! :-) (And no, I'm not a TAC demo!!) The sketch is from the Stars and Stamps sketch challenge for the week. It also is a "thinking of you" card with ribbon... so I guess it fits the Midweek Throwdown challenge, too! :-)

Be sure to remember, if you're sending some cards to OWH during this holiday season, that the deadline for Christmas cards is passed. The heros wouldn't get them in time to send them home! The next looming deadline is January 7th - the last day for Valentine's cards. Interested in sending some in? Check out the Archway Cookie challenge here! Also, don't forget to vote for OWH in their Craft for a Cause competition at Joann's. You can vote daily and it would be such a blessing for OWH to win!!!


OK. I know that there are a bazillion blogs on the hop this weekend, so I'd like to offer a challenge and some candy up for grabs if you've read this far! :-) To be eligible for the candy, just mention the word LUCY in your comment. You may want to become a follower, too... to see if you've won! If you'd like five extra chances to win, make a Valentine with the colors pink, green and brown, and post it in your SCS gallery or on your blog. You can get an adorable FREE digi from my dd's blog ~ Splashing Joy, and the FREE digi paper from TAC, so you'll be all set!!! :-) (Those aren't necessary, of course, but everyone loves something for free!) And, by the way, it's no fair using a card that's already made or posted! :-) All right, off you go now to Tara's blog. Just don't forget to link your challenge card here before 11 pm CST on Sunday!

Blessings!

Tricia
