OWH's Sweets for Sweets Challenge

OWH is partnering once again with Archway to match sweets for sweets. Archway will send goodies to our troops for Valentine and Love cards received by December 10.

This year the goal has been upped from 4,000 to 5000...lots and lots of love cards need to be sent homeward to carry our heroes' hearts to their families!
  • Deadline is Dec. 10th (cards can still come in til Dec 31, but will count for the match only til the 10th) and must be received on or before that day.
  • Cards need to be LOVE or VALENTINE themed
  • Cards need to meet OWH guidelines (no glitter, A2, etc)
  • Kids can send the "love" AnyHero coloring pages here or here and we'll count those too
  • Send in a packing slip with your cards with your info filled out, card count, and write "ARCHWAY" on the challenge line
So, while my mind has been drifting to thoughts of stocking stuffers and cookies for nephews, my hands have been making Valentines for our troops to send home to loved ones. The cards below were made from Reminisce paper.

with 4 layers of white tulle stapled on brown cardstock

Hoping to get a few more done before the December 10 deadline.

Very cute love cards, Sybrina! I like the way you angled your pieces on the sketch card. Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

The 2nd card is my favorite. Love your tulle idea for the background texture! Love the red and brown color combination on both cards.
