Cards for Troops!

My littlest : Hunter,Jonathan,Callie and TRACKER!!!!
Hello Bleeps (blog peeps!)
My card today is for Operation Write Home Sketch #34 again AND for the OWH Family Challenge!!!
The kids had fun writing a little note for anyhero and they made the card fronts, themselves. I am running low on cardstock....so I'll have to add them to the front of a card later on!!!!;)

Jonathan with the kids across the street!


Hunter


Callie and her BFF!
We had some neighborhood kids come over to help!!! My card was being stubborn....and it seems I had trouble getting anything straight. Plus, I think I may have a problem with white space, LOL!!! I have to keep adding stuff because I feel it's too naked......or maybe it just seems that way cause I didn't sponge anything!!!! I know.....GASP, right!!!! Hehehehe!!!! You can see I did change up the sketch a tad, by moving the layers around.....oh, and my image was a little bigger measurements as well!!! Well, thanks for stopping by and have a great day;)

Awww! The kids are adorable. They have so much fun playing with mom's toys! I love your card! No sponging! LOL! I love your style, so you keep right on sponging. I'm the clean and simple one in the crowd. Love that square lattice embossing folder! Maybe this month... Have a good night! ~Robin
