Father's Day, Pinwheels, & 1,000,000!!!

WHEW!!! Finished just in the nick of time! Father's Day cards for Operation Write Home need to be in the shipper's hands by the 21st of this month, and I JUST finished my little batch!

 This motorcycle is a digi I found online and, for the life of me, can't find the blog I found it on. If you know who it's from, PLEASE let me know so I can link back to them!
*sidenote: I found the motorcycle digi! Please visit Bird's Cards

 ... and this '56 Ford Fairlane digi is from Yolanda. She has a wonderful blog, so please visit her and tell her I sent you!

 These are just a couple of the 16 Dad's Day cards I made. I used SU paper, punches, and markers to decorate all of them, and embossed the kraft paper with my Cuttlebug.

In the box of about 50 that I'm sending in, I'm also sending some great pinwheel cards. You can find the tutorial on these at OWH Stars and Stamps, where there is also a link to the article about Denise, who originally made the pinwheel.

I made these without sentiments so they can be used for any occasion...

And in case you haven't heard, the AWESOME cardmakers for Operation Write Home have reached ONE MILLION cards!!! On May 12th, we all watched anxiously as Sandy counted cards until she reach 1,000,000! This means that 1,000,000 cards have been made available to our wonderful Heroes to send home to their loved ones! What an amazing group of cardmakers! Please watch the video via the link and make sure to leave a comment for either our cardmakers or our heroes! And here's a link to the 1,000,000th card sent in by Seongsook Duncan's Blog... stop in and leave her some love too!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
