I have a card to show you!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone!! Spring is finally here in NE Ohio! I am so happy. I just hope it does not snow again. I know I shoudn't even think it!
For those of you who sent Haeli a card, first of all, thank you.  Secondly, I wanted to keep you updated, my sister was stopping by to see her again today with a second bunch of cards.  She has received 55 cards and packages so far!  She asked her mom why would all these people who don't know her want to send her cards!?  So thank you for showing her that even people who don't know her do care!  (See the right top side bar if you haven't read my post about Haeli)
I have a new card to show you. Yes, finally!!  And I am pretty darn happy with this card.  I combined two stamps.  The first one is from The Pixie Cottage, entitled Pleasant Porch by ArTish. (I swear this card looks like my mother-in-law's porch.)  I also used one of my Magnolia Tilda Stamps.
I just love to make easel cards. I used the a punch around the page from Martha Stewart.  Here is a side view, I pop-dotted Tilda.
I would love to enter this card in a few challenges.

Craft our Days Away - For Mum or a Special Lady

Papercutz Challenge - Anything Goes

Just Magnolia - Favorite color combos (I have many -- here is orange and green)

Thanks for stopping by,

This is gorgeous Michelle! The colors are just the right colors for Spring, and I needed a visual dose this morning as it snowed yesterday, ALOT!

I sent my parcel out yesterday for Haeli. I am so happy to hear she is getting more.

Such a sweet card, Michelle. I know you spent a ton of time creating that scene and it was worth it...it looks so cute. I want to come sit with Tilda on that swing. Heck, I want one of those swings!!!

I'm glad Haeli is getting so much love in the mail. That's awesome.

Hey, Michelle. Thanks for your comment on my blog. As far as Operation Write Home, they prefer size A2 cards (fold a piece of 8.5x11 paper in half), for ease of mailing. The cards are actually for soldiers to use to send home to their families, so feminine cards are great. They are always looking for generic cards, thinking of you, missing you, birthday, like that. Check out their website for more info on restrictions and what you can do: http://www.operationwritehome.org/guidelines.html

Thanks for your interest!
