Nuts for Dad OWH Sketch

 Operation Write Home has launched a new card drive, check it out...

Indeed this was a challenge for me this week.  I don't have anything that I liked and wanted to use.  
So I thought of what my Dad likes and that was peanuts than a memory clicked of  drawing peanut people with my Mom when I was a kid. 
 I just jazzed up that Nutty artwork and came up with the following...
I had to go back and secure my upper corner, that was driving me crazy.  It is all better now;)

Stationary Box

We went calling on some friends Saturday and I wanted a special hostess gift to take along. 
 Last week I was searching out ideas and came across this
Her directions are easy to follow and I love the video tutorial.
Here is one of the boxes that I made...

I did make my own pen holder by scoring PTI cardstock  
at 1 1/2" times 4 and adhering with redline tape.  The bottom is open however, the box flap holds the  pens in place as you open or close the box.

Product list...
BG Sultry Paper
PTI cardstock, ribbon and stamp sets
circle punches
post it note
red liner tape

We had so much fun on Saturday and enjoyed the glorious spring day.
If you wish to see more photos of the afternoon and evening visit my Facebook Wall.

For the Graduate

Here is another graduation project I have worked on.  
 I was using maps and included some of my favorite poems and quotes that would fit the theme.
They are printed off on printer paper and rolled as a Diploma.
 (used PTI stamp set instruction sheet as my guide) 
The plan is to roll up bills inside each of the little packages.

below is a free download for you ...
Barnes and Nobel has great new complete collections from some classic poets starting at $20.00!   These books would make an awesome gift to go along with the tea tin.

Product list...

PTI ribbon, graduation stamp set, lib card stamp, ink and tea tin
circle punches
red liner tape

Doing Good Challenges

Some OWH links for you on this beautiful Sunday.
Take the link for more information...

I still have major projects in the works that are demanding my full attention then I came across this verse while reading this AM.  So I am going to make time to create today for the above challenges, how about you?

Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good,  for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Happy Stamp Day!  God Bless.
