FRIENDS WITH FLAIR FRIDAY OPERATION WRITE HOME

This is a card I made for Operation Write Home.  My LSS, Cat's Creations Scrapbooks, has started participating in this program.  We meet every other month and create cards for our troops to send home to their family and friends.  On this card, I used the Unity stamp set, Birdie Duet, which was a prize I won.  LOVE this set - the cage is fabulous and the quotes are wonderful.  It was a prize when Emily Leiphart and Lisa Arana did their "Take Two" week long event where they each did a daily project using the same stamp set, thus showing two ways to use it.  Really enjoyed their event and was thrilled to win this stamp set, which was on my wish list.  For this card, the music note paper is from Fancy Pants, the bird is cut out from some paper by My Little Shoebox as is the green paper the cage is stamped on.  The sentiment is stamped on a tag from an unknown source.  The fibers are from my stash and I used Stampin Up ink and chalk ink by SEI.  Really liked how this card came together.  


Quick request.  Please say a prayer for those who are affected by the wildfire that is once again at Possum Kingdom Lake near where I live.  There was a huge wildfire in this same area back in April and 160 homes were lost.  So far, over 30 homes have been lost this time.  Texas is in dire need of rain and the entire state, less two counties, is under a burn ban.  There are numerous wildfires in the state, this is just the one that is close to where I live.  I wish we could just divert some of the floodwaters left by hurricane Irene down to our drought stricken state.  That would help the people in the path of the floodwaters and our state.  


Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the creations on the hop.  Don't forget to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win a Unity stamp set.  Have a fabulous Labor Day weekend.
