Hero Card and Birthday Card

Hey all!  Today I'm going to share two cards with you.  One was made for my Hero who is coming home and the other is just a birthday card for an OWH Challenge.  Hope you enjoy!

A Real Hero!
My goodness! This card was sooo much fun!  I've been so busy having my kiddos put together signs and t-shirts for when their Hero comes home that I forgot for a brief moment to make a thank you from me.  I hope he loves it.  It was inspired by the Sketch Challenge over at OWH S&S

Next up is a birthday card that I made for the OWH S&S Midweek Throwdown!  The challenge was to make a birthday card and that I did! Enjoy!

Wish Big!
This card involved a lot of chalking/distressing.  But I had fun and had a few learning mistakes along the way.  For this card I used the Sweet Scoops and the Word Play stamp sets.  I used Very Vanilla and Real Red cardstocks along with some Chocolate Chip for the distressing.  I used Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon and the Curly Label punch!  Some Glossy accents and a few brads finished it off. 

Thanks for stopping by!
