Hello everyone! I have a beautiful group of cards created by Karen to share with you this week but first I’d like to remind everyone that the Valentine’s deadline is December 31st and you can find other holiday deadline details in this post at the HomeFront Blog.
Now onto Karen’s  cards! This wonderful mix of card themes will inspire you no matter what theme you’re currently working on. Karen warns that her blog has been neglected and like many of us (myself included) is what I’d call an on again-off again blogger. You can find her at “Slightly Scrappy” and of course you can also leave her a comment here at the end of this post.
How long have you been stamping? More than 30 years

Do you have a craft room or specific area where you stamp/craft?
Yes, I use a spare bedroom for my library/craft room.

What are your favorite stamp/craft products? 
I love stamps by Papertrey Ink and Hero Arts.  I’ve just discovered Studio Calico kits due to Sandy’s recommendation. Jillibean Soup has a great to card kit club that has given me a lot of design inspiration.
Do you have a favorite technique? 
Not really, just pretty basic stamping and die cutting.  Would love to have time for more coloring practice.
Are there colors you love to include on your cards?
Red is my favorite color. Goes great with our patriotic theme, too.
How did you hear about Operation Write Home?
I saw a magazine article and read about OWH on some crafty blogs.
What motivates you to make cards for our heroes?
I like that such a small act provides a special way for our heroes to keep in touch with friends and family.
