Write Home Wednesdays-Mickey Hello

Hello friends! I am beginning a NEW series of posts  for Wednesdays. My motivation is to actually meet my goal of 150 cards made and sent to Operation Write Home by the end of the year. So keep me accountable guys! 

I will be combining the sketches Operation Write Home posts on Saturdays and their Mid-week Throwdown Challenge. These projects will be posted later on Wednesday nights since I'll most likely be tackling them after work.

So onto my cards....
The MWT Theme is Masculine
This is my inspiration Sketch #219

The MWT Theme is Disney 
This is my inspiration Sketch #220 Iadded stitching to add some demension and texture. You can find tips and strategies on how to add stitching to your cards here. You can also find more tutorials on my tutorial tab here.
I popped up the top portion of the Mickey and glued the feet to the card elements to keep Mickey level on the card.

These posts will be short. It's just a way of motivating me to complete my OWH cards and sharing them with you. Have a great night! If you have any questions about the products or techniques I've used on these cards please feel free to send me an email using the contact form on the right.

If you want to know more about Operation Write Home click on the image below and it will bring you to their home page. They also have a blog with lots of creative ideas and tutorials. I hope these cards inspire your creativity and maybe you'll be encouraged to send some of your homemade cards to our soldiers overseas too through Operation Write Home!

Wonderful job on both cards. Love the way you did your Disney and the masculine is just perfect with the colors scheme and the burlap. Could not be better. Glad you are sticking to your goal. We'll be cracking the whip LOL !!!!!

Awesome cards, Amy! I like the added burlap on the masculine card and Mickey is so cute! I had a bit of trouble with that layout but I like how you layered and added the stitching. It works beautifully! TFS!

Some luck y heroes (and recipients) and going to love your cards: the mix of patterned papers, burlap and ribbon make for a lovely masculine card and the Mickey card with the touch or stitching and popping him up is too sweet.
