Things I made During This Arizona Summer

I had plenty of opportunity to make things this summer.  I didn't venture out that much, it was too hot and I am becoming more heat intolerant.  Also, I didn't post many of the items I did make.  So here are a few: 

A tissue box holders for my neighbors who were leaving in their motorhome for the summer:

I have since made another one of these - - they are so quick and easy!
Three Any Hero cards -

And, A box to hold cards - or a special note:

OWH Blog Skip Birthday Bash

WELCOME!  I am presenting 3 Any Hero cards I made to showcase Unity Stamps sentiments.  I was touched to see the sentiments I received to use.  They are perfect for Any Hero cards.  I don't do as many of these as I would like, but only because I type 100% faster than I write.  However, when I write, I spell 100% better than when I type! 

The first card idea hit my brain while I wasn't able to sleep.   I used all Authentique Celebrate collection 6X6 pad.  I just love their paper!  Now for the card:

 A funny thing happened on the way to making this card.  My star die is in a bottom drawer, and I can't bend, but discovered my toes can open drawers!  TMI!  I would be out of luck without the "As Seen On TV" Grab It's that I have in every room of my house, and in my van!  Finding the twine I used on the clear button - - not easy!

The second card is also made from the same 6X6 Authentique pad.  The 2 hot air balloons are part of the polka dot paper.  I do believe I am going through a button phase. 

My third card uses an old Whipper Snapper flag stamp that I got at a garage sale.  It also has a brand new doily die that I bought.  

This is probably one of my favorite sentiments, because it is so meaningful.  Especially in the trying political times we are in.

Well I hope you have enjoyed my cards.  Next on the hop is our fearless and admirable leader Sandy.  You will find her cards at  http://sandyallnock.com/  .    If you want to head back over to the start of this Blog Skip you will find that at http://operationwritehome.org/starsandstamps/  .

Enjoy the rest of your day, and always keep a pen handy - - in case you have the time and inclination to write a note to a HERO.

OH - and thanks Julie for getting this skip organized!
